A big storm hits the forest, and the Ewoks must travel to the Tree of Lights, because the winds are almost fading it. Logray gives the warrior a magic lantern that leads them to the Tree. Weechee (Wicket and Willys older brother) is the Ewok who is leading the quest. However, the Dulok shaman also realizes that the Tree of Lights is fading. If it were to fade out, the Ewoks wouldnt have their power anymore, and King Gorneesh would become ruler of the forest. So the Duloks are racing the Ewoks to cut the tree down.
Wicket, Latara, and Kneesaa have to stay behind, but Wicket secretly
follows the Ewok warriors. Along the way, Willy, who holds the lantern, drops
it, and Wicket, who is only a little behind them, catches it before it drops
into a river. So they let Wicket come with them.
