    Does anybody know whether these dvds have the episodes in order (starting from the beginning) and if they plan on releasing it in volumes rather than a box set?

    These aren't individual episodes from the animated series, they're TV specials/movies which present cut and spliced portions of episodes merged together into one long-running feature.

    Matthew, you're confusing the live action and cartoon DVDs.

    The live action movies are The Ewok Adventure (aka Caravan of Courage), and Battle for Endor.

    There are also two cartoon releases of Droids and Ewoks. These are not by any stretch the entire animated series. They are edited compilations, the same ones that were released on VHS in the early 90s.

    I would buy a season/series set of Droids in a heartbeat. But I'm not touching this small sampling.

    To be fair, they each include 4 more episodes edited together.

    I still didn't buy them. This is what really ticks me off:

    "There has been considerable interest in these titles from the core fan base for some time, so we've packed these DVDs with two features each to offer even more than they ever hoped for," says Jim Ward, Vice President of Marketing and Distribution for Lucasfilm Ltd. "We're excited to bring these productions to DVD and introduce them to a new audience of young fans."

    I'm pretty sure most of us had been hoping for complete releases. Do they think we don't know that the rest of the cartoons exist? There are 15 Droids cartoons and 35 of Ewoks. They have released 8 episodes from each without the intros and credits. And that's more than we ever could've hoped for? Please. [​IMG]

    That Jim Ward guy sure says some stupid things sometimes.
