Scene 028 - Leia meets Wicket
EXT FOREST CLEARING - LEIA'S CRASH SITE A strange little furry face with huge black eyes comes slowly into view. The creature is an EWOK, by the name of WICKET. He seems somewhat puzzled, and prods Leia with a spear. The princess groans; this frightens the stubby ball of fuzz and he prods her again. Leia sits up and stares at the three-foot-high Ewok. She tries to figure out where she is and what has happened. Her clothes are torn; she's bruised and disheveled. The Ewok jumps up and grabs a four-foot-long spear, which he holds in a defensive position. Leia watches him as he circles warily and begins poking her with the sharp point of the spear. LEIA Cut it out! She stands up, and the Ewok quickly backs away. LEIA I'm not gonna hurt you. Leia looks around at the dense forest, and at the charred remains of her speeder bike, then sits down, with a sigh, on a fallen log. LEIA Well, looks like I'm stuck here. Trouble is, I don't know where here is. She puts her head in her hands to rub away some of the soreness from her fall. She looks over at the watchful little Ewok and pats the log beside her. LEIA Well, maybe you can help me. Come on, sit down.
