Tales from the Endor Woods is an animated film released on DVD in 2004. It is a feature-length compilation of the Ewoks episodes "Wicket's Wagon," "The Travelling Jindas," "To Save Deej," and "Asha." As with The Haunted Village, the episodes have all been re-scored and the original opening and closing titles are missing. Additionally, this film opens with a new narration by an older Wicket Wystri Warrick.


In 1997, eight episodes of the Ewoks animated series were edited together as two full length films. Episodes 2, 1, 3, and 9 were edited together to make The Haunted Village, and Episodes 10 ("Wicket's Wagon"), 5 ("The Travelling Jindas"), 4 ("To Save Deej"), and 13 ("Asha") were edited together to make Tales from the Endor Woods.[1][2] These compilation films were later released in several Region 4 countries, such as Brazil (the Brazilian edition was released in 2005 with the Region 1 and 4 codes on the same disc) and Australia. The Haunted Village combines four loosely related episodes into one story, while Tales from the Endor Woods connects four seemingly unrelated stories via a voiceover by Alex Lindsay (digital effects artist for The Phantom Menace)—intended to be an adult Wicket.[3] The original opening credits and theme song are not included as part of the films, and were replaced with simple credit sequences and new scores by Marco D'Ambrosio.
