    We’ve updated our canon policy ("canon" = official continuity) again in light of the changes related to the new Story Group and the Star Wars canon structure. There has now been official confirmation made via an announcement on April 25th, 2014 by Lucasfilm on (HERE).

    The official Disney / Lucasfilm position on canon has changed with the announcements regarding the Story Group. Now, essentially, instead of there being multiple levels of canon (and everything having a place within one of those levels), there is just one level of canon, and things either are or aren't canon. What has now been officially confirmed is that all of the movies will be canon, and so will be the Rebels and The Clone Wars TV shows. Expanded Universe material (novels, comics, games, etc.) that will come out after this point will be canon as well, but the EU material that came out before the announcement will not be canon. However, they have stated that they will continue to use that existing EU material for ideas (places, characters, storylines, etc.).

    Important - things to note regarding our canon policy and rules in the new films forums:
    - Arguments about canon in any thread are not allowed.
    - The Clone Wars and Rebels TV show discussion needs to be limited to the thread for that, and needs to tie into the ST.
    - Discussion about EU novels, games, etc. needs to be limited to the thread for that, and needs to tie into the ST.
    - There should be no expectations placed on posters in debates to be familiar with / a fan of the TV shows or novels (or any other aspect of SW), but there should also be nothing saying that only the movies count.
    - Posters should not be ridiculed for having the preferences that they have, nor should the official canon announcements be used as evidence of "victory".
