    I thought the Holiday Special was considered pretty much stricken from any kinda canon? IIRC GL said that if he had the power to track down every last copy on earth, and destroy it, he would.

    Haha, I go with everything that I think should be F-cannon is F-cannon. The Holiday Special is number 1 on the list. I don't have a good enough memory of the Ewok movies, I was like 5 when I saw them, to know if I would put them in F-cannon or not.

    I guess I should specify what I mean by involvement. I don't consider just approving something, or demanding a change to be involvement. When I say that I mean he actually worked with the person to develop part or all of the story.

    I should also clarify there are always exceptions to the rule, and if there is a piece or work I really like and think fits within what Lucas has established even if he wasn't involved I would put it on the G2 level.

    My guess is that the James Luceno books, set around the time of the prequels, may have had such involvement- Labyrinth of Evil (sets up events for Episode III, and shows Palpatine's kidnapping), Cloak of Deception, and Darth Plagueis (both lead in to Episode I) spring to mind.

    I think the idea is that The Holiday Special is canon in the sense that the events, "happened," and the characters created in the special exist. It's just that the canon events that happened didn't happen in a completely stupid and cheap way.

    I think the answer to this question is about as relative as it gets.

    It depends on if the makers of the ST and spin off films are concerned with not contradicting TCW and Rebels. Somehow that seems unlikely to me.

    If Lucas is still involved with the ST - having given them the basic treatment - I could see him wanting them to not retcon TCW completely out of existence.

    In Dave Filoni's interview from NYCC, he stated that Rebels, is drawing from Lucas notes, plus Kasdan, Kinberg, and Hidalgo are involved with Rebels.

    Well, it is, just minus Darth Maul.
