More Star Wars Content Headed to Disney+

Several Star Wars titles will premiere on April 2nd on Disney+. All have been previously shown on TV in some capacity, but will finally be available on-demand in a streaming service

  • Caravan Of Courage: An Ewok Adventure (1984) – The first of two live-action Ewok stories premiered on ABC in 1984. It told the story of a young pair of siblings who crash-landed on Endor and were assisted by Wicket and The Ewoks in the search to find their parents. The legendary Burl Ives narrated the story. It was also known as The Ewok Adventure during its initial airing.
  • Ewoks: Battle For Endor (1985) – Despite the title, this story has nothing to do with Return of the Jedi. This battle involved defending the Ewok settlement against a witch and her armies. Wilford Brimley stars as Noa in a supporting role.
  • Ewoks (1985-1986) – The Ewoks also had a Saturday morning cartoon series for two seasons. This series is widely considered to be non-canon by fans. The show’s theme song was written and performed by music legend Taj Mahal.
  • Clone Wars (2003-2005) – Before the long-running CGI series aired in 2008, this animated series ran for two seasons on Cartoon Network. Produced by Genndy Tartakovsky, creator of Dexter’s Lab and Samurai Jack, it fills the story between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. While the voice cast is largely the same as the CGI version, fans have long debated whether this show is considered canon or not.
  • The Story Of The Faithful Wookiee (1978) – If the title doesn’t sound familiar, it’s probably because it was never formally released. It aired exactly once on CBS in 1978 as part of The Star Wars Holiday Special. Most fans agree it is the only redeeming quality of that special. Plus, it is notable for being the first appearance of Boba Fett, who would appear the following year in The Empire Strikes Back.

There has been no mention of whether the other Star Wars Saturday morning series, Droids, will ever see the light of day on Disney+. Many fans still hold out hope that it will happen one day.
