You just made a typo.  I believe you meant to post this:

At any rate, I think the OP called us personal canons, based on "you're."

Damn, I'm usually so good with those two.

Fixed.

  • OT / Radio shows.
  • Splinter n Minds Eye
  • Dailey Han Solo books.
  • Marvel comics before ESB.
  • Thrawn Trilogy
  • Jedi Academy Trilogy.
  • Glove of Darth Vader
  • Courtship of Princess Leia
  • KOTOR 1 & 2.
  • TIE Fighter PC game
  • Clone Wars comic series.
  • Captain EO
  • PT (Phantom Edits)

 

These make up my personal "Star Wars" when I think about the Saga. There's a lot of other stuff I don't 'deny' or pretend doesn't exist. I just tend not to think about "Bacta War" or "Death Troopers."

So far, it's only the original unaltered trilogy.

 

After years of intense training, I've been able to basically erase the prequels from my head. When I watch the original Star Wars trilogy, I don't think of the prequels. Even when Obi-Wan does his speech ("And he was a good friend."), it just doesn't come into my head anymore.

 

I haven't watched any of the prequels since Episode III came out. Unless you count the Plinkett reviews. In which case... I've seen them countless times for the past couple of months =P

 

I'd like to give some of the novels/comics a try someday.

 What? Captain EO is plainly a Jedi dealing with evil in some part of the universe either post or pre OT. It makes perfect sense!

Neither the thread title nor the OP mention Star Wars specifically, so I'm going to include The Big Lebowski in my list.

Great previous debate about personal canon.  Make sure you stick around for my (dis)missive in post 31.

IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!

"[George Lucas] rebooted the franchise in 1997 without telling anyone." -skyjedi2005

"Yeah, well, George says a lot of things..." a young 1997 xhonzi on RASSM

"They're my movies." -George Lucas. 19 people won oscars for their work on Star Wars (1977) and George Lucas wasn't one of them.

Rewrite the Prequels!

Well, I've got a pretty complex (some might say convoluted) personal canon system. There's stuff I classify as 100% canon, and then there's stuff that's near-canon and semi-canon; near-canon material is material I consider mostly canon, except for a number of small details, while semi-canon material is material that is the complete reverse of near-canon - material I consider non-canon except for a number of small details.

So, if you want me to go by what I consider 100% canon, here's my "personal canon".
