Star Wars fans have strong opinions about Ewoks. They love or hate without a lot of feelings in the middle gray area. Monday night on How I Met Your Mother Neil Patrick Harris’ character Barney Stinson explained why.
He said there was an Ewok Line: people born after May 25, 1973 love Ewoks because the furry creatures remind them of the teddy bears they are stilling cuddling at night. Anyone born before then recognizes Ewoks were just added to Return of the Jedi solely because they were cute and appealing to kids. Accompanying this theory was a whole presentation on Ewok culture. You have to admit that’s fabulous even if you don’t like the furry creatures.
Watch the entire presentation about Ewok culture and the Ewok Line after the break.
