This button was released in a series of photo buttons used to promote the film, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. First appearing in Return of the Jedi, the Ewoks are a race of small creatures that resemble teddy bears and inhabit the forest moon of Endor. Portrayed as hunter-gatherers, Ewoks are a primitive race that live in small huts. In the film, the Ewoks are seen helping the Rebel Alliance defeat the Empire and its forces during the Battle of Endor. Their help allowed for the destruction of the Death Star II, a massive weapon with the power of destroying entire planets. Considered by many to be a point of debate, Ewoks have become notoriously loved and hated by fans of the series. Despite this, they have gone on to appear in made-for-television movies as well as in an animated series.
