This is an 70s or 80s movie, I last saw it as a small child so bear with me.

It involves a space craft in the middle of a forest on a different planet. Maybe the ship crashed? A blond woman actor in the ship with possibly a child? No helmet or oxygen needed on the planet.

The setting has almost a Star Wars feel to it. I vaguely remember something about a small glowing crystal and even fairy like creatures.

1 Answer 1


After having made a couple of cheeky comments I actually think that this could be Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure.

Made mid-1980s so fits your timescale. Star Wars feel as it's a Star Wars spin off. Forest setting. Crashed Spaceship. Fairy like creatures called "Wisties" (would not have recalled that, thank you google). Blond child, not sure about a blond adult woman but there is a blond teenage boy... Not sure about a glowing crystal so there is room for error here.

Watch the trailer here...

For an image of a Wistie see this page on Wookieepedia.

  • There definitely is a glowing crystal in The Ewok Adventure. (I think they used to to hypnotize the giant spider.)
