Something's been bugging me about stormtroopers for a very long time.


How could they lose to Ewoks?

They weren't getting beat by ewoks, the battle was actually in their favor till Chewie hijacked an AT-ST. Up until that point, the stormtroopers were demolishing them.

Stormtroopers were supposed to be the elite soldiers of the empire. They operated separately from the Imperial Army and Navy, and their ultimate loyalty was to the emperor himself. They were the best of the best from the military, I don't see how they could have lost to a bunch of ewoks, a handful of rebels and one AT-ST. But then again the good guys always have to win, even if its a long shot.

Same reason why things went so horribly wrong in Vietnam. The Ewoks knew the land like the back of their hand so they had the terrain advantage, setting up traps and using ambushes to win against the technologically superior foe.

Which was basically the idea Lucas had, he wanted to see the Empire get trounced by a technologically less advanced force. Originally this was going to be on Kashyyyk but then he wanted Chewie to remain the only Wookiee present so he'd be easier to spot in a crowd. And so the other Wookiees were shrunk down into Ewoks, hooray!

no they where still getting beat. You see the ewoks destroy 2 of the AT STs using trees and rocks.

You see an Ewoks arrow PIERCE the stormtroopers armor and kill him.

You see the Ewoks beat several storm troopers to death using rocks and hatchets.

The AT-ST taken over by Chewbacca really doesn't do that much.

In fact in the whole battle you only see 2 maybe 3 Ewoks die.

This was after Chewie got a hold of the AT-ST

The only arrow you can actually see hit a stormtrooper is one hitting a scout trooper behind the neck, which clearly is not covered by any sort of armor only by the black body glove which is pretty much a 2nd skin.

You see the Ewoks beat several storm troopers to death using rocks and hatchets.

All you see is them jumping stormtroopers before it switches scenes, some of them may have gotten killed but we don't know if all of them did.

The AT-ST taken over by Chewbacca really doesn't do that much.

He destroyed an AT-ST with it, plus a lot of the stormtroopers.

In fact in the whole battle you only see 2 maybe 3 Ewoks die.
Answers in bold, also.

"The tide of the battle began to turn as Chewbacca used this AT-ST to take out isolated Imperial units as well as another Imperial walker. The sight of this rallied the remaining Ewoks, who had been retreating into the woods, and they doubled their efforts behind the stolen AT-ST."
