August 24, 1989 – The Ewok Village Area Opens in Disney-MGM Studios
“Hurry along the forest moon of Endor – home to rustic Ewok cottages and a towering AT-AT…”
On August 24, 1989, the Ewok Village area opened at Disney-MGM Studios (now Hollywood Studios) at the entrance of the Star Tours attraction. Based on the village found on forest moon of Endor from the Star Wars film Return of the Jedi, guests queue around the village on their way to the attraction. At night, the area is lit up to give the illusion that the Ewoks are around, and they can be heard talking and singing as guests make their way to Star Tours.
