Episode 56: The Ewok Adventure with Eric Walker
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Caravan Of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, we have a special guest, Mace Towani himself – Eric Walker! We talk with Eric about the behind the scenes stories of Ewok Adventure; the sequel, Ewoks: The Battle For Endor; his new book that journals the making of Ewok Adventure, and, we talk a lot about his transition into music. Eric is a composer and song writer, who has a new CD coming out in December called ‘Universal Delight’, he also has an independent record label which is always looking for tomorrow’s talent.
Learn about Eric Walker the actor, musician, composer and stick-thief (listen and find out) in this fun-filled episode of Skywalking Through Neverland!
The Ewok films were released as a double DVD set in 2004 but apparently some one goofed and forgot to include the mandatory extras, commentary tracks or bloopers (you just know there is footage of Ewoks stumbling and rolling down hills). Eric and Warwick “Wicket” Davis filmed an entire documentary while working on Caravan Of Courage, so we invite you to view this special preview of footage they took. Then stay tuned for a Campaign to bring this Documentary and extras to a Blu-ray release of The Ewok Adventure movies. Here is an exclusive peak at these extras, edited by Eric Walker himself:
Next week we will be Skywalking to Wisconsin and will not be able to bring you an episode, but we will be back the following week with a whole slate of Holiday-themed episodes in December.
Happy Thanksgiving, and, enjoy the 88-second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
