time you watch Star Wars - Return of the Jedi, be sure to pay special attention
to the battle scene on the Endor moon that takes place between the legions of
the evil Empire and our heroes, Luke, Han, Chewbacca and that Leah.
During the battle, the brave, yet nauseatingly not cute, Ewoks (little people in
raccoon suits) provide the Imperial Storm Troopers and
AT-ST Walkers with a target-rich environment. The Ewok's sole purpose is to distract the
troopers with their sling-shots and then get blown up.
Meanwhile, Chewbacca makes a daring move to take over an Imperial AT-ST Walker.
Unfortunately, the power cells are nearly drained from blasting many, but not
enough, Ewoks out of existence (and the movie, thank you).
In order to restore
power to the cells, the AT-ST must be wound up using a gigantic winding key on
the outside of the hull.
In a deleted scene, the Ewoks
clamber up the side of the walker and jump up and down on the key to spin it
until power is stored.
Chewbacca lets loose with the cannons
disintegrating lots of expendable Storm Troopers. He is now clear to blow open the doors of
the shield-generator station.
