But what is the point of the holocron if it is ignored at will?
Lucas doesn't care. Again: live with that or be unhappy perpetually.
George Lucas and his partner in crime Dave Filoni are invalidating the holocron by expecting me to believe that TCW is in the same universe as the Clone Wars multimedia project and its derivatives.
I'll take the third option. Internet backdraft ahoy
I'd argue that everything is still, more or less, compatible, it just requires enormous leaps in logic and selective memory. The majority of Republic issues can still exist, if they take place earlier in the war.
That's too much work to embrace inferiority.
tell that to Even Piell...
That's where the leap in logic comes in; it's a gaping hole, but not one that destroys the entire space-time-continuum.
Though Zeta does raise an interesting point in how worth it it all really is
And unfortunately for me, as someone who really likes Obi-Wan, TCW almost seems to take place in an alternate reality where Obi-Wan is a wuss.
Even Piell can be fixed, and undoubtedly will be in the next hardcover of Pavan's story.
Early Imperial cloning experiment?
Why is it up to me to change my logic, when the old logic makes more sense than the new logic.
The way I see it, Anakin being knighted a year after Geonosis and having a Padawan "doesn't compute" with Anakin being knighted two and a half years after Geonosis and, therefore, being a Padawan for most of the Clone Wars.
And the really sad thing with that is, Filoni is justifying his treatment of Obi-Wan as the reason for Obi-Wan's exile on Tatooine.
The reason for Obi-Wan's exile was to look after Luke and keep out of sight of certain bloodthirsty Sith Lords...
Well, another reason for Obi-Wan's exile.
For what it's worth, I disregard what they say on the subject of Anakin being knighted early, because so far there is absolutely no reason why he has to. In my mind, Anakin is knighted about two years into the war, and TCW takes place in that last year. If TCW gets really long, I wouldn't mind saying a year and a half. But yeah, there's too much good material where Anakin is a padawan to say that's all in one year.
And because he got beat up a lot in TCW!
A padawan having a padawan seems like a slippery slope. Where does it end? The padawan could have their own padawan and so forth...
What I mean is that, according to canon as of now, Anakin Skywalker was knighted about one year into the war, and gained Ahsoka as a padawan sometime afterwards. I don't mean to imply that I think Anakin shouldn't be a Knight when TCW events take place, or that he got a padawan as a padawan, as he really shouldn't. I only mean to imply that there's absolutely no reason why TCW has to take place so early in the timeline, particularly since it does not reference anything at all (besides Quinlan Vos?). So, in my personal order of events, Anakin spends the first year 1/2 to two years as a padawan, going through the events of the previous Clone Wars continuity. In that last half of the war or so, he is knighted, and shortly after, the TCW film begins.
I really do feel like them placing TCW so early in the war is unnecessary. I guess it's their way in insuring that they have nearly unlimited time. I feel that TCW would be a bit less intrusive if everything, including Anakin's knighting, took place a bit later, and as of now there's no reason why it can't.
Anything can be fixed by magic. It could be that all this time Palpatine was a renegade smurf masking his blueness with the dark side.
On a side note, a HARDCOVER .........All the other Coruscant Nights books were paperbacks...........
The Last Jedi is now a paperback that only continues the storyline, making Coruscant Nights a trilogy.
This would be book four.
Its no longer the Coruscant Nights book, only a stand-alone follow-up.
