"Parade of the Ewoks", also known as the Ewok theme, is a musical piece written and composed by John Williams and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra for the film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The complete track was first released as the fourth track on the A-side of the original Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (soundtrack) album in 1983. On the 1997 double disc CD release, it is the first track on the second disk. Different variations can be heard several times during the scenes on Endor and part of it is used during the end credits. The track has a running time of about three minutes and twenty-eight seconds.
The piece was also briefly reprised in the Ewok films: Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor where it served as Wicket's theme. As such it can also briefly be heard on the Ewoks soundtrack.
