    Re: Droids show no longer canon?

    Aw, I'm makin' this crap up as I go along.

    I do believe the OT & DROIDS cartoon to be canon rather than the awful prequel trilogy. However, A-Wing Fighters appeared DROIDS episodes, which is odd since that ship was considered state-of-the-art around the time of the Battle of Endor, many, many years later.

    Actually, it was retro-explained that this was a prototype model that saw little usage, not the A-Wing itself, which was developed around the time of ESB.

    "personal canon" is alright with me.

    Now that you mention it, I recall reading that explanation about the A-Wing-like prototype in DROIDS too.

    If you absolutely, positively must consider ROTS canon... Akin to what Chuxter said about the clerical error, maybe Antilles was a gambler who lost the droids in a Sabacc game shortly after Bail gave them to him.

    So the cartoon series chronicles R2 & 3PO's major exploits as they plied the galaxy in the service of one master to the next after leaving Antilles. R2 & 3PO's masters and associates were often involved in anti-Imperial activities, which would likely draw the attention of the fledgling Rebel Alliance. So Captain Antilles, being official chauffeur of the Alderaan political opposition, learned of the whereabouts of his errant droid charges and was able to recover them again by the time of ANH.

    I never considered the Droids cartoon to be canon. But they do make reference to it and some of the characters found in the official website, so maybe there is an effort to make it fit within the already established storyline. I like Ji'dais reasoning of Antilles losing the droids, it would help explain why he didnt move up the chain of command after 20 years, Bail was probably disappointed with him.
