Eric Walker, who played Mace Towani in the made-for TV Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, is raising money to release Growing Up on Skywalker Ranch, a book documenting his “adventures in the Star Wars universe” and other behind-the-scenes tidbits.

I’ve been hanging around fandom a long time. But now, every year brings less and less Star Wars that actually appeals to me. The Old Republic? Not a gamer. The saga in 3-D? Meh. Novels focused on brand-new characters? That’s what the rest of the SF/F section is for. The Clone Wars? No thanks.
And there are so many news blogs out there right now, run by young, fresh names and faces. You don’t need us anymore.
Bitchin’ Endor. You’re sure to get a kick out of today’s most famous Star Wars eBay listing, i hate this stupid ewok.

Celeb fans. Bonnie talks Star Wars (and The Guild and Dr. Horrible and such) with geek of note Felicia Day.
If I hadn’t already decided that the Todayewok shenanigans was one of my favorite Star Wars moments of 2009, this song may very well have been the thing to push them over the edge. You go, drunken ewok.
StarWars.com unearths some European gems from the twilight of original Star Wars mania… The Droids and Ewoks cartoons. Some, like the stuffed Ewoks above, are kind of terrifying. I’m pretty sure that guy on the right is sizing up that poor girl’s skull for his percussion kit.
