I hate ewoks but this guy loves them with an unrivaled passion

I was speaking in Chicago a couple weeks ago, and publicly declared (which created an unexpectedly large uproar) that I hated the ewoks.  I believe my exact words might have been, "Warrior teddy bears are cute and Return of the Jedi would have been a better movie if the Death Star had managed to blow up their planet before it was destroyed."

Then I saw this video on Marc's blog. This guy loves ewoks. And I have to admit that the surprise cameo in this video is pretty hard to argue with. Anyway, watch the video and you decide... are you an ewok lover or hater?

    I love ewoks! They totally redeemed Star Wars for me. They're like hobbits... I mean, without them, what are the rebels fighting for?

  3. Matt,

    I saved up many months worth of allowance to buy my own stuffed ewok when I was a kid. I still have my beloved Princess Kneesaa a Jari Kintaka.

    ... are we still friends?

  5. Sigh. I guess I am mostly alone in my hate. Nothing new there.

    Jar Jar Binks anyone? You all love him I take it?

  6. NO! Jar Jar is not cute! He does not make a cuddly, soft toys. He is a gangly, annoying creature that was given little thought... at least when it came to Start Wars toy marketing..... and I was older when he came out. That could make a difference, too. :)

    Here's an observation: 1) Ewokes brought down a giant imperial walker using stones and sling. 2) Jar Jar Binks has a speech impediment, yet became a great leader to his people. Sound familiar, Matt? :) It's all about LOVE! :D
