It is a retelling of the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, but with a special focus on the portions involving the Ewoks.

EditionsEdit

Publisher's summaryEdit

The Ewoks, natives of a tiny moon called Endor, come to the aid of the Rebel Alliance in its climactic battle against the evil Galactic Empire. (From the Random House edition)

Luke, Han, and Princess Leia make unlikely friends with the furry Ewoks of Endor. This level 1 early reader retells classic scenes from Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi as the Ewoks join the rebellion against the evil Galactic Empire. Featuring beautiful full-color illustrations, this World of Reading book is perfect for little Star Wars fans who are ready to read on their own. (From the Disney edition)

ContinuityEdit

As the story focuses on the Ewoks, Luke Skywalker's actions aboard the Death Star II are described, but not depicted. During the celebration with the Ewoks on Endor, he discusses what happened with Leia Organa, who whispers to him "You tried to save him", regarding Darth Vader, his father, who was once the great Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker. Luke replies, "I tried. But it was too late for him", seemingly contradicting the spirit of the film.[1] In the film, on the Death Star, Luke tells Anakin "I've got to save you!", to which he replies, "You already have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister... you were right."[2]
