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.

Would be better if it was more accurate but once again you are exaggerating to make your point more powerful as you have done in the past. Don't feel like wasting my time pointing out all your mistakes again so I will just leave it at that.

Also, perhaps your "i dont want to waste my time" excuse is simply not because you don't have the time but because you cannot think of a credible rebuttal.

i know for a fact your going to play your Propaganda card, next you'll most likely play your Biased card. Then you'll play your Wookieepedia car in which you post a link to a wookieepedia page that has no neutral tone whatsoever and was obviously written and/or edited by a TCW fanboy.

This is one big poker game ozzy and I know your hand also you have the shittiest poker face I've ever seen

i made no mistakes, if you read carefully you will notice that i stated only 1 or 2 opinions. the rest was fact. your love for the show causes you to believe that everything opposed to it is wrong.

it is your judgement that is clouded not mine.

Every arguement I have made has been supported by fact including the couple times recently in which I used the term propaganda along with a definition which clearly provided the evidence to my labeling as propaganda. My love for the show is less than my love for EU. However I dislike falsity on forums filled with star wars fans. The Clone wars has screwed up enough that you have no need to stretch the truth to make your points. Be accurate and you can still get your desired results.

really? your love for the show is less than your love of EU? i find that quite hard to believe. Hell, name 1 EU source that you've read either in a comic or novel before i set up ARC.

I'm quite certain that without my 4 year crusade on TCW, your knowledge of EU would not be as advanced as it currently is. Is that not an accurate statement? If I didn't tell you to purchase any of the Clone Wars: Omnibus volumes so you could have at least some exposure to only a few of the plethora of comics published about the clone war, would you have gone out and purchased them anyway?

If not i think you owe me a thanks for opening your eyes to a larger, better portrayed Clone War
