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.

why the heck did they make a clone wars cartoon when the clone wars already had a cartoon in the first place? this is what they should have been doing. they should have made a show that takes place in between episodes 3 and 4 not 2 and 3. finally someone one's taking my advise. perhaps Disney's rein over the franchise wont be so bad

I believe this is what is known as "false hope." Although the chronological placement of the cartoon makes more sense than TCW's, I have VERY little confidence in Disney's abilities as of right now, and said confidence is waning rapidly.

Please note: My opinion ONLY. You have every right to disagree with me, but I simply don't have the time or the patience for flame wars here.

I have some faith in Dave Filoni working on this show, but I have NONE in Disney at all. They just keep lying. They cancelled TCW because they wanna focus on their Sequel era, yet announce a new show, which has nothing to do with Mickey's stupid era at all.

TCW should have never been. they should have done a show that takes place in the era this show takes place in with the same styling of TCW.

no need to throw 6 years of canon out the window when you can create new stories in a relatively under-covered era

one of the most confusing things about the clone wars is the battle of Duro. The main reason for the republic defeat is because the fleet patrolling the sector was bribed by Senator Onaconda Farr to protect Rodia. The problem is that according to TCW he was murdered before he could do that. again anther confusing and unnecessary contradiction, some times I wished they tried not contradict the pre - 2008 timeline.

thats what they should have done. they set out to create new stories within the established timeline, however they ended up ravaging the established timeline.

It can still make sense that Farr was given a pardon, but was replaced by Senator Lolo Purs as seen in Senate Murders and Farr remains as his advisor until his assassination.
