Awesome! Dad Inserts Ewoks Into Family's Vacation Photos To Convince Kids They Are Real

By Sunny Chanel |

Do Ewoks Exist?

There are certain lies we tell our children; that there is an Easter Bunny, that Santa Claus knows where they live and that the tooth fairy has access to their bedrooms. But father of two, Anthony Herrera? He has added one more myth into his family’s culture –  that Ewoks really exist. And he has the photos to prove it. The dad, who happens to be a graphic designer, carefully placed, via PhotoShop, Ewoks into his family’s vacation photos in a way to try to convince his daughter that Ewoks really exist.

Check out what he said about his project and some of his photos here:

Herrera wrote:

A year ago we took a trip to Sequoia National Park. I wanted to excite my daughter while being in such amazing surroundings. Being the Star Wars geek that I am (so is she), I told her that this is where the Ewoks live. She spent a good chuck of our time hiking keeping a lookout for any Ewoks. Coming home I can’t say that she wasn’t disappointed that we didn’t find any. I had to explain that they are extremely shy and hardly ever let anyone see them. After we got home, and after I had a little time alone with the photos, I told her I thought I saw something strange in a few pictures. We viewed them on the TV to get a larger image. You can imagine how surprised and excited she was when we discovered that we didn’t see any Ewoks, but they saw us, and had certainly taken an interest in her and her little brother. Maybe I’m a little wrong for lying to her and falsifying the pictures, but I don’t care. She’ll never forget the time she spent in the big woods with Ewoks.

Do you tell your kids myths about things that don’t really exist?

    Just be careful..it can come back and bite you. I’m hoping my eldest has forgotten my slight tinting of a reindeer nose in my photo of the herd in Scotland. Her letter to Santa had read “please send me a photo of Rudolph”. I had an entire roll of reindeer photos. How could I resist? It came out beautifully. Then she wanted to take it to school……….. uh oh.

    This will be something that she will look back on as an adult ans say, “My dad was awesome.”
