When ROTJ was released was the theme of rainforest deforestation meant to be the message of the film? The Ewoks being like South American tribes and the Rebel Alliance being environmental warriors.
When watching the film I was captivated by the beauty of the rainforest indeed it is part of why I love this film. Not sure if this theme was intentional or the story just developed this way. The film was mostly about the Alliance up against the Evil Empire, essentially the premise of Star Wars so this environmental angle might just be a coincidence.
In hindsight though given the times back then the whole eco movement and reducing greenhouse gases it may be the case that Endor was a suitable location to film the last epic battle and that it could easily have been an ice world, desert world, ocean world, volcanic world or whatever. Down to pure chance.
