    In addition to the animated features, two live actions movies will be on the DVD's as well.

    The first, Caravan of Courage, received an international theatrical release and was subsequently broadcast on U.S. television in 1984, followed by its sequel, The Battle for Endor, which aired in 1985.

    "There has been considerable interest in these titles from the core fan base for some time, so we've packed these DVDs with two features each to offer even more than they ever hoped for," said Jim Ward, Vice President of Marketing and Distribution for Lucasfilm Ltd. "We're excited to bring these productions to DVD and introduce them to a new audience of young fans."

    Fox Home Entertainment describes the releases as follows:

    "Star Wars Animated Adventures: Ewoks" - Two animated Ewok features recount the years before the Battle of Endor. Here Wicket is a young Ewok struggling to achieve maturity in his community. This leads to a series of adventures with his friends: Princess Kneessa, heir to the chieftain, Latara, the aspiring musician, and Teebo, the animal empath. Together, they help the adults protect the village from their enemies like Morag the Tulga Witch and their rival species, the Duloks.

    "Star Wars Animated Adventures: Droids" -- Two animated Droid features recount the adventures of C-3PO and R2-D2 before they met Luke Skywalker as they serve various masters over the years. As it turns out, their lives were no less hectic as they became involved in battles against gangsters, pirates and the Empire.

    "Star Wars Ewok Adventures: Caravan of Courage/The Battle for Endor" - Two live-action features document the Towani family's adventures with the Ewoks. The Towani family are stranded on Endor after their shuttlecraft crashes on the forest moon. Separated after the crash, the children, Mace and Cindel, must gain the support and trust of the Ewoks in order to rescue their parents who have been captured by a giant monster, Gorax. The Ewoks and Towani children go on an adventure to rescue the captured family members. Upon return to the Ewok village, an army of foreign invaders attacks them. Cindel and an Ewok, Wicket, escape into the forest where they meet Teek and Noa, who, like Cindel, also crashed with his Starcruiser on Endor. Together they must defeat the marauders.
