I don't know, I found the Ewoks pretty irritating back in '83 when I was 12.
Films aimed at kids don't necessarily have to be childish.
Of course, after A New Hope, Lucas always had one eye on the toy market, so cutesy aliens is de rigueur for any Star Wars based movie at this point.
After A New Hope?  I wouldn't say Ugnauts were cutesy aliens!

Last Jedi will have an evil double of BB-8 - yes, like KITT and KARR - called BB-9.  They're really trying hard with this one, you guys.  Really rolling the boat out with new ideas.

edit: just realised they aren't calling evil BB-8 BB-H8.  This movie is now officially bullshit.

I cheered (at 13), as the Ewok's were getting wasted by the Empire troops.
My friends punched me and the whole Cinema boo'ed me.
Childhood scars  ;).

Doesn't that spoiler the end of Rebels a bit?
