That info did not originate from the novel, so yes, we still consider it canon.
Where did it originate from, then? As far as I was aware, the press release for the novel was when that info was at least first released to the public.
In ANH, an imperial officer calls for a scanning crew aboard the Millennium Falcon. The ANH expansion on the CCG identifies him as "Captain Khurgee".
And in ROTS, while in the Senate chambers, Palpatine remarks to a clone trooper: "Tell Captain Kagi to prepare my shuttle for immediate takeoff."
I've checked the ROTS illustrated screenplay and the CCG, and these are the correct spellings. So what I'm wondering is, due to similarities in their names, could these two characters have been intended to be the same person?
Mr. Chee, will Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force go indepth will all the various lightsaber styles, in particular the style Lus ma? I was curious since this style was only mentioned in LOE and no where else
mike4ty4, I know you are asking Tasty, but would you be willing to rephrase that in english for the benefit of your fellow forumites?
Well, I was wanting to see if my interpretation was correct. First of all, does this "film only" continuity mean there exists a "parallel universe", so to speak, where the only events we know of are what is seen in the films? Does this have anything to do with what George Lucas has referred to a few times about "parallel universes" and are these two continuities the "two universes" he was talking about in the 2005 Starlog quote? And how does the part of the quote about things remaining "elastic" until being "committed" to film or other "official sources" jive with the two-continuity thing? Am I right in interpreting this such that if it's committed to film it is no longer up-in-the-air in both continuities, but if it's in a non-film source then it's still up in the air in the film-only sources?
Hey Leland, I had heard that this was the place to
clear up continuity questions. My question is: I had
heard that Darth Maul was "resurrected" several times
in the Star Wars Tales series. The problem is, all of
the issues before 20-21 are now considered
Infinities, though with varying levels of
"canonosity". Which of his "resurrections" are
considered canon? Or is non of them canon?
I had also found out that Wikipedia is not totally a reliable source, and I posted this again as my question was starting to fall way back.
(continued from last post. These are meant to be interpreted as a single post -- it's just that this thing has a 1000 character limit on it, so I couldn't get my full message in just one post.)
"You're never going to know what George's view of the universe beyond the films at any given time because it is constantly evolving. It remains elastic until it gets committed to film or another official source. Even then, we know there's always room for change. Though the Holocron is maintained by Licensing, it is utilized by folks throughout all the Lucas companies."
You said "It remains elastic until it gets committed to film or another official source." But that would seem to freeze it only in continuity (2) above, not (1), for the case that it is not committed in film -- ie. unless a film is made, it's still "unknown" there (in 1). Is this right?
I'm curious about these statements you've made about continuity earlier:
"The only relevant official continuities are the current versions of the films alone, and the combined current version of the films along with whatever else we've got in the Holocron.
Am I right in my interpretation of this that:
1. a continuity exists in which only the films exist, and nothing else is part of it, and
2. a continuity exists in which the films exist along with the EU materials and other "canon" items (C/S levels) in the Holocron.
Also, could these be the "two universes" George Lucas referred to in Starlog Magazine in 2005? And, does the existence of the "G/C/S" database somehow imply that only one continuity exists, as some particularly rabid fans have insisted? If not, what it it's relationship to the above continuities?
