Star Wars – Return of the Jedi: Ewoks


The word “Ewok” is never actually said in the Star Wars, Return of the Jedi Movie. It only appears in the ending credits.  The Ewok are named after the Miwok, a Native American tribe, indigenous to the Redwood forest where the Endor scenes were filmed. The name also is a pun on the syllables of Wookie backwards.
