Description:
Ewok Celebration (also known as Yub Nub from its incipit, which means 'freedom' in Ewokese) is a musical theme recurring in the ending of the Star Wars film Return of the Jedi. It was composed by John Williams while his son Joseph Williams wrote the lyrics. It is the song sung during the celebration of the Ewoks on Endor with the Rebel Alliance pilots after the destruction of the Death Star II.

In 1983, Meco recorded a version of the song "Ewok Celebration" which reached #60 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In the 1997 edition of the movie (see List of changes in Star Wars re-releases), a different song (Victory Celebration) without lyrics replaces the original version. Like several other changes in the original movies made for the new editions, some fans of the films were somewhat upset with the absence of the song. It does not even appear on newer soundtracks, available only in an obscure box set. The song, however, is used in several Star wars video games released after the special editions came out, such as The Original Trilogy and Rebel Strike, although the former reflects the 2004 version of the RotJ ending.

The song appears in an episode of the sitcom Spaced; the producers could not acquire the rights to use the original recording, so Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg performed and recorded their own version.

The song has been covered by the rock band The Solids, and by Parry Gripp.
