Mister Ed wrote:Don't really disagree with any of that. You may have a point that, in the strictest sense, it may not be possible to say that Star Wars really HAS a canon. But if it DOES, I'm inclined to think that what George Lucas says it is would be the highest authority. And either way, the point I was trying to make originally was that individual viewers can't accurately call their preferred subset of Star Wars lore "canon" in any sense of the word I am aware of, even though they are perfectly justified in HAVING any such preferences (I know I do. As I said, even if I accept some things as canon, that doesn't mean I like them. There are many aspects of Star Wars "canon" that I find stupid, and ignore if at all possible.)
