This topic came up a couple times last night and I wanted to brave bringing it up on the boards. During the show last night, I made the comment that a lot of stuff was canon until Clone Wars came out. That is both false and true. The only real canon has always been the movies and everything else was behind that unless specifically stated as "This is not canon" aka Star Wars Infinities and such. But, over the decades these secondary sources (books, comics, games and such) were respected and thought of as canon by most fans. Hence why they were almost always incorporated or referenced in other stories. They were always considered legitimate Star Wars lore. However, now that the Clone Wars is on TV, a new level of canon it making major changes. It has rendered the Karen Travis Republic Commando series effectively null and void. Apparently, they are also now rewriting the story of Ventress if what the CV attendees are reporting is true. Add in George Lucas' comments on Durge not showing up in the new series, the changes to Ryloth, and reappearance of characters that were said to have been killed, and oh there is that little change of Ahsoka! At this rate, they will have essentially rewritten the entire Clone Wars era in Star Wars within the next couple years. A little retcon now and then is a good thing in my opinion, but this is opening up one large barrel of monkeys. With George Lucas essentially saying that the movies and the tv show are the only real canon, what will be next on the hit list? If they ever do decide to do something Post-Return of the Jedi as a show or mini movie, are they going to render the Thrawn Trilogy as non canon? Or how about the Rogue and Wraith squadron novels? Are the characters of Mara Jade, Pellaeon, Thrawn, Kyle Katarn, Corran Horn, and others potentially on the chopping block at any moment? There is also the potential of rewriting the entire New Jedi Order series. As these are some of my personal favorite stories/memories of Star Wars, I find this disconcerting. What are your thoughts on this? I bring this up as I fully believe that once the Clone Wars cartoon has run its course that they will do another series or some direct to video movies. They are not going to just let all that hardware, software, and CG models be destroyed after all! Especially if there is money to be made.
