Wilford Brimley just passed away this week, and the legendary character actor’s death has fans looking back at his Star Wars spinoff movie, Ewoks: The Battle for Endor.
However, while Ewoks was targeted for a younger audience than what George Lucas aimed for in the Star Wars film franchise, the film had Brimley’s character “f-bomb” the franchise. Remembering this funny little bit, fans have been sharing a video of Brimley saying “f***” in the movie. Posting it on Twitter, the video has become rather viral. You can check it out down here:
It’s as clear as day how Brimley’s character curses in the movie, but there’s no evidence that the Motion Picture Association of America actually noticed the “f-bomb” because Ewoks: The Battle for Endor was rated TV-G when it was released.
Then again, there was a lot of things amiss in the film. The second feature film based on the furry warrior creatures George Lucas first introduced in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, the movie The Battle for Endor was released in 1985. Made for television, the film’s setting took place six months after the events of the first Ewok movie, The Ewok Adventure: Caravan of Courage.
In the movie, marauders raid the Ewok village in Endor and steal a power supply that they think is magical.
Like the Star Wars Holiday Special, the Ewok movies aren’t really part of canon, though time to time the Star Wars franchise does like to make nods to the film.
The Skywalker saga is available for streaming on Disney+.
