Return of the Jedi

In the 1983 film Return of the Jedi, Wicket was the first Ewok to make contact with the Rebel Alliance during the Battle of Endor, when he met Princess Leia Organa.

It was not long before the rest of the Rebels arrived, having been captured and nearly used as food by the other Ewoks. Consistently we see Wicket being predominantly the leader although some other Ewoks do pluck up the courage and seize the initiative. He is also shown as klutzy at times, such as when he accidentally hits himself with a rock he is swinging over his head.
