Canon, what is it? Yes it is a type of artillery fixture however it has another meaning. "To understand canon and continuity, the overall Star Wars saga should be looked at as a set of stories written by many different people which "document\" past "events." Although some stories are more reliable than others, they all are looked upon as part of the overall "history." It should also be remembered that all of these stories are simply that-stories. There are numerous errors that inevitably arise between the stories simply because different authors have their own ways of telling the story and may not have the time and resources to perfectly align the details."- Wookieepedia. Different types of canon are present. In Star Wars canon, the highest level of canon is the 6 films made by George Lucas, the next level of cannon includes Tv Series such as the 2 Clone Wars series one made by Dave Filloni and the other by Genndy Tartakovsky. Last but not least, the next level of canon is the Novels and Comics written and published by various authors and companies.
In Tolkien's franchise, the concept of Canon is a little more complex, for the subject is still being debated. Naturally, the highest canon material is works published by J. R. R. Tolkien and his son, Christopher Tolkien. "I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched. The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama ." - J.R.R Tolkien. From 2001 to 2003, film maker, Peter Jackson released 3 films depicting his interpretation of The Lord Of the Rings trilogy. Certain events that Jackson cut out or re-wrote in his interpretation sparked controversy amongst some fans of the series. The biggest issue was that in Jackson's interpretation of The Return Of The King in 2003, depicted the Shire a happy and un-touched place after the destruction of the one ring. In Tolkien's book, when Frodo returns from destroying the ring, the Shire is in ruins, industrialized, and secretly under the control of Saruman. Despite the differences, Jackson's films are loved and enjoyed and will continue to be enjoyed for years to come.
The goal of this group, The Alliance To Restore Canon, is to compile and discuss contradictions with canon in various sci-fi and fantasy franchises. Not to criticize the franchises but to simply make note of the contradictions and ask "how does this contradict? Why does this contradict? Is it an accident or on purpose? Is it directly from the franchise or one of the many independent authors?". So again, we are not criticizing the franchises, just wondering why these contradictions exist and why have they not been fixed. Something as simple as deeming it uncanon can fix a contradiction. Like the 2008 Clone Wars series for example, George Lucas has not yet officially declared the series canon and whether or whether not the series will re-write existing canon entirely or simply add to the time- line that had been established before 2008.
At the moment, the Alliance To Restore Canon is mostly made up of star wars fans, but we are open to other sci-fi and fantasy series so if you have found contradictions in other franchises and feel as if your not being heard, don't be afraid to join. All are welcome and all are treated with respect.

Wookieepedia : "Durge was also originally going to appear as the first bounty hunter in the 2008 Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series. Supervising Director Dave Filoni and writer Henry Gilroy considered reimagining Durge as a Human character, redesigning his alien features and keeping his armor. However, the exploration was short-lived, and was ultimately dropped in favor of a new Duros character named Cad Bane."

Finally, it's a good idea to have created Cad bane...

now bare with me when i say this. there is no point in complaining about the clone wars any more because Lucas and his band of misfits do not have anything to do with star wars any more that's all in the past and it cannot be undone... unfortunately Disney owns it all now and gone are the days of the good old star wars but the final nail in the coffin will be episode 7 but until we see it there is still hope

If George Lucas and David filoni actually took the time to watch the movies they would realize that they were repeating the downfall of the Republic,(In their case, Lucas Arts,) for power, (In their case, money,) The TCW=Order 66, destroying the very beings,(In their case, media,) that kept them alive just because they don't fit with their ideology. Is Disney a Rebel Alliance? Or just another face of the Empire? Only time will tell, but until then I wont just give up on my favorite franchise. We must support the survivors of this Order 66 and reprimand the people who have turned the Republic of SW Canon into an Empire of profits.

I dunno, I've kind of moved on from star wars. I've started to move on from Star Trek also, the major difference being there is MUCH MUCH more good Television/Movie type of Trek content compared to star wars (essentially, 3-6 movies and a 3 season mini-series). But, Star Wars keeps me with it's video games. Some of them were revolutionary (X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter) but also some of them are just plain fun. Until the golden age ended with the Force Unleashed.


Maybe Abrams will mess up star wars like he did trek. Not to say I hate the new trek movies, they're just not trek. It's using branding to appeal to a wider audience.
