Plot synopsisEdit

Morag illusion
Morag takes on a magical disguise to kidnap Wicket and his friends.

Around a campfire, Chief Chirpa is telling a group of woklings the story of the Sunstar Shadowstone, a very powerful stone that the Ewoks never used because of its extreme power for good or evil. He explains that Morag the Tulgah witch wanted the stone for herself, and once came to the Ewok village looking for it. But a young Ewok warrior fought back, and was carried away to Morag's home in Mount Thunderstone. However, the young Ewok soon learned Morag's magic, and turned it on her, which broke the Sunstar Shadowstone in half. The Ewok managed to escape with the Sunstar half, but the Shadowstone remained in Morag's lair. Chief Chirpa then reveals that this Ewok he is speaking of is actually Logray, the village medicine-man. After the story, the woklings thank Chief Chirpa for the story and go home.
