The Mandalorian and the Book of Boba Fett are both a ways off, but if you’re looking to get a Star Wars fix right now, Disney+ has you covered with the new Star Wars Vintage Collection, which arrives on the service today.
The collection includes a bunch of old, out-of-print movies and series. That includes projects like the 1984 television movie, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, a live-action movie in which Ewoks help a pair of siblings find and rescue their parents. There’s also Ewoks: The Battle for Endor. Also a television movie, this 1985 movie is a sequel to the Caravan of Courage and stars the character Cindel from the first movie; her parents and brother are killed by marauders in the opening moments. Maybe you’re interested in the 1985-1986 Ewoks animated series, developed by beloved Batman: The Animated Series writer Paul Dini. Lucasfilm went really hard on Ewoks for a little bit there. The Story of the Faithful Wookiee, from the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, features the first instance of that tuning-fork-shaped Pulse Gun used by Din Djarin in The Mandalorian.
There are a few other titles as well, so here’s the whole list:
- The Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure
- Ewoks: The Battle for Endor
- The Story of the Faithful Wookiee
- Clone Wars 2D Micro-Series Volumes 1 & 2
- Droids (coming later this year)
The Star Wars Vintage Collection is a weird bit of Star Wars history, featuring old, forgotten stories that often shift the focus away from Jedi but with very mixed results. But then, it’s not like it costs anything to watch, and it’s available on Disney+ right now.
