According to wikipedia, it falls into T-canon. But following source notes lead to dead links. I have been told by some that it is not canon, and others say it is. Can anyone provide current sources that show it either is or is not canon?

This is touched on by this question though it doesn't specifically answer for cartoons. –  Jeff Jan 20 '13 at 21:00

Sadly yes the Cartoon is higher level canon than the novels:


From Lucas:

"This is Star Wars, and I don’t make a distinction between [Clone Wars] and the films," Lucas said in an interview released by SciFiNow - a science-fiction enthusiast magazine based in the UK - during last season.

Here is some more reading on the canon.

UPDATE January 2014: Disney will soon be revising the way canon works. There will only be canon and non canon and the intent appears to be to wipe away most of the EU from canon. SOURCE

That's what I thought! Thanks! –  SSumner Jun 26 '12 at 20:28
Good link too. Very thorough –  SSumner Jun 27 '12 at 3:55
The best part is that it's more canon than RotS novelization, which mentions that Skywalker and Kenobi haven't met Dooku since Geonosis... ;D –  Griwes Jun 28 '12 at 22:29
Any chance Disney will de-canon the prequels?! –  Wikis Jan 23 at 15:29
@wikis - Probably not... but we can hope and send them emails begging them to. Maybe we can get them to retcon it all into a Yoda dream sequence –  Chad Jan 23 at 15:37

The only star wars that Lucas calls canon are: The Clone Wars TV show, Force Unleashed 1(for 2, no info from Lucas), radio drama that are more extended Ep. 4-6 and the new live show that will come out. This is all that I can call G-canon (not bad for almost 40 years)

I think you sadly misunderstand the complexity of Star Wars canon - virtually EVERYTHING that bears the Star Wars label is canon, but there are varying levels of canon which determine which is correct if two sources differ. See this question for more info –  Jeff Jan 20 '13 at 20:58
