    I have no fear. They talk crap about us, we can talk crap about them. The only difference is, we are Jedi Knights. They are Sith Lords. Some are Dark Jedi. Like those that used to read the EU, but gave up after not liking some stories.

    I can respect the fans of the movies, who want to talk about the movies in a movie forum and get ticked off when people aren't talking about the movies.

    I have no respect for fans of the movies, who want to talk Canon in a movie forum and get ticked off when people bring up non-movie Canon items. These people had the most to lose, and they have lost it all. They have no legs to stand on now.

    As long as the official site divides the categories, then its fine by me the way it is.

    As for EU being "canon", well it is, until Lucas decides to change stuff. But thats his prerogative, so I dont care.

    >You'll notice in the Official databanks, that ewok movies, and cartoons, are not listed the >expanded universe section but the behind the scenes of the movies section, .

    I beg to differ, Valiento. I got these off the EU section:

    "When the Towani family cruiser crash-landed on Endor, Wicket and his family helped the human children Mace and Cindel Towani find their parents who were captured by the evil Gorax. Wicket and Cindel became very close friends. She began to teach him the basics of the human language that she spoke. Shortly thereafter, Wicket, Cindel and his family were captured by King Terak's evil Marauders who were searching for what they believed to be a mystical power source. Wicket and Cindel escaped, and returned to rescue the Ewoks, along with the human scout Noa and his friend Teek.

    Wicket was always in a hurry to grow up. He resented being a Wokling, and not being able to go with the older Ewoks on hunts and expeditions. He was quite happy to come of age at the Festival of Hoods, where he gained his own hood and was no longer considered a child, though adolescence was by no means fairer to the adventurous young Ewok.

    Unable to do 'grown up' things, Wicket developed close friendships with fellow youngsters Teebo, Kneesaa, Latara, and even the young Ewok Malani, when he wasn't too busy avoiding her huge crush on him. For a time, Wicket thought of following Teebo's path and became interested in the magical lore of the Ewoks.

    Wicket became a pupil of the medicine man Logray, but he lacked the patience and skill needed to become a shaman. When Wicket learned that Logray still practiced the arcane and forbidden Dark Rituals, he spoke out against the medicine man. Logray, in return, had Wicket banished from all Ewok rituals."

    "One in a string of careless owners jettisoned Artoo and Threepio over the deserts of Ingo. After such an unceremonious disposal, Threepio and Artoo finally found some responsible masters -- the speeder racers Jord Dusat and Thall Joben. The droids helped the racers win the Boonta speeder races.

    During a short stint with the Intergalactic Droid Agency, Threepio and Artoo were assigned very odd jobs, including waiting tables at Doodnik's Cafe on Tyne's Horky. The droids found themselves on auction, and soon became the property of miner Jann Tosh. It was around this time that Threepio and Artoo became embroiled in the intrigue surrounding the ascendancy of Tammuz-an's royal ruler.

    Threepio and Artoo came to be property of Mungo Baobab, a trader from the Manda system. After some adventuring in and around the Roon system, Threepio and Artoo again found themselves without a master before arriving at Kalarba"

    "Once jettisoned over the deserts of Ingo by a careless owner, Artoo and Threepio finally found some responsible masters in the form of the speeder racers Jord Dusat and Thall Joben. Joben's prize speeder, the White Witch, was equipped with an astromech socket, and Artoo rode with him as he won the famous Boonta speeder races.

    During a short stint with the Intergalactic Droid Agency, Artoo and Threepio floated from odd job to odd job. The multi-skilled astromech droid even had the indignity of waiting tables at Doodnik's Café before helping out keschel miners Jann Tosh and his uncle Gundy. During Tosh's ownership, Artoo and Threepio became embroiled in the intrigue surrounding the ascendancy of Tammuz-an's royal ruler.

    Artoo and Threepio came to be property of Mungo Baobab, a trader from the Manda system. When saving the world of Biitu from the cruel grip of the reigning droid known as the Great Heep, Artoo fell in love with a little pink astromech droid named KT-10. "

    wrong section TC, Like I mentioned it was the ewoks databank entry, not the Star wars article in a different spot.

    behind the scenes of the movies section

    "Following the success of Return of the Jedi, the Ewoks would return in two made-for-television movies: Caravan of Courage: The Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor. The Ewoks would also star in two seasons' worth of half-hour animated adventures, and their own comic series from Marvel Comics' Star imprint."


    Notice this entry is brand new compared to that one article that was from a year or 2 ago.

    Talon Card...
    Valiento's correct. The following, for example was taken from Endor's "Behind the Scenes" section:
      "The Return of the Jedi novel describes the planet disappearing in a long-forgotten cataclysm, a theory supported in the original printing of the Dark Force Rising Sourcebook. The Ewok television movies, however, clearly showed a large gas giant in the Endor skies. The Truce at Bakura and Dark Apprentice novels also make reference to a large central planet visible from Endor's skies. The Ewoks animated series calls the planet Tana, but also shows a binary system, where all other sources show one sun. The twin suns can be attributed to Ewok lore and myth, rather than a real stellar phenomenon."


    Note that the "Behind-the-Scenes" sections seem to be most in line with LFL's policy - it refers to the movie novellizations, the SWRPG, several novels, the Ewoks cartoon as well as the Ewok TV movies. That is, no differentiation between what was "Expanded Universe" and what was Canon - it's all given on equal footing.
