Explaining the Canon

Star-wars-last-supper

Yesterday I had to explain to my sons the difference between the Star Wars canon (Episodes 1-6) and the Star Wars apocrypha (the Clone Wars cartoons, the various spinoff novels, and the Youtube fandom movies). Watching the Clone Wars they kept asking, “Is this Episode 7?” No, no, it lacks the authority of the New 3 and the Old 3.

  1. I think the Star Wars canon is in reality only the episodes known know as 4-6. Episodes 1-3 are false scriptures, possibly Gnostic in origin. You’re spot on with the Star Wars apocrypha.
