The Princess Ewok – Star Wars Lore
Royalty in Star Wars came in all shapes and sizes. Whilst many donned elaborate headdresses and lived in extravagant palaces, some were covered in fur and spent their days roaming lush forests! Such was the case with Kneesaa – the princess Ewok. As the daughter of Chirpa, chief of the Bright Tree Village, Kneesaa exchanged a life of pampered luxury for action and adventure. Her calling to the outdoors may have resulted in an excessively animated childhood – one she shared with fellow Ewok Wicket W. Warrick – but it placed her in good stead for the Battle of Endor. So much so that she helped the father of Poe Dameron coordinate battlefield tactics. Not done there, however, Kneesaa further aided Hera Syndulla and C1-10P in destroying TIE fighters, doing so as a gunner aboard the Ghost. By fighting alongside members of her tribe, Kneesaa displayed incredible courage and leadership under pressure. Not bad for a tiny bear!
