    Not necessarily as hideous as it sounds.

    Done right, he needn't look ridiculous and could in fact be menacing.

    I want an entire tribe of redneck Ewoks visiting the Endor version of Bass Pro Shops, facing off with an entire tribe of Gungan nerds exiting the comic book store in the same mall.

    Weapons: sawed off blasters and very dangerous chemistry experiments.

    Make it happen and it will be canon.

    Part of me wonders if Disney will decanonize TCW due to rights issues or feeling burdened by things established in TCW (such as Maul surviving).

    Nah. The rights should revert back to them eventually.

    This a thousand times. If you have any questions about canon refer to this answer every single time.

    I didn't think they would count what we can see on our TV's as the same as what we have to read in books and comics.

    What he is saying is that the PT, the OT, TCW and Rebels is 100% pure unadulterated canon. The story team uses those core things as they tell new stories. In other words the Inquisitors they used in the EU won't be what we see in Rebels.

    How can something be canon if it hasn't even been shown to the public yet?

    Haven't we gone over this before?! Many times before...

    The Clone Wars AND Rebels are canon.

    At least in this thread the most extreme opinions are balanced by opposites. I see some quite skeptical views too.

    Aight, where is this "from now on there are no more canon levels" thing coming from?

    Is that a verbatim statement by Hidalgo, Chee, Filoni, Lucas or some other such person of equivalent authority? Is that a statement they made on video or in an interview, or in a tweet they posted, or in any other thing officially put out by them?

    And if so where, what, why, when? Is there a link for this stuff?

    Ooooorrr is this just more fan interpretation or peoples thoughts or spin being passed off as "fact"?

    Well the first place it popped up in is the Essential Reader's Guide. Pablo and Leland talk about in the newest Forcecast. Pablo has Tweeted about it numerous times.

    Quick question in regards to this topic, is Almec just expressing an opinion about Jango Fett in the Mandalore Plot episode or revealing a canon fact?

    revealing a filmed canon fact, whatever is in a tv series, or film, overwrites previous comics, and books, future material will have to follow what was said onscreen.

    An opinion. You can find discussion regarding this topic in this thread here. In particular, these two posts, by Tado-Fett and Trebor Sabreon, respectively, should answer you question quite succinctly:

    It all depends on what the story group decides in the future, fo all we know, Maul is ruling Mandalore, and the Underworld, for sidious, while Vader is responsible for the military

    during the times of Rebels, the OT, as well as during the ST.

    Thank you Circular Logic, I've pretty much had all those same arguments with myself over time. The sad thing is that now I don't know which version I prefer - the Mandalorians have been messed with so much I can't get a handle on them anymore.

    We have two canons now, Pre Story group

    Post story group

    the only way to see what survives from pre Story Group, is see what comes in the future, a friend of mine from Roqoodepot.com has told me that LFL has told it's writers, that they are forbidden from going to wookieepedia, it's now part of their contracts, they need info, they can only go to Leland Chee, or Pablo Hidalgo.
