Star Wars: The Clone Wars mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Anakin, Ahsoka, and the clones begin their ascent to the monastery on planet Teth, the ascension cable of one clone trooper (second from the front when the shot begins) is not animated correctly and a gap can be seen between the end of the cable and the clone's blaster.

Continuity mistake: When Asajj is reporting to Dooku and she tells him to wait (before Obi-wan shows up), you can see in the hologram that she ignites both of her lightsabers and turns around. However, in the next scene (at her location), there is no sign of a hologram transmitter/projector, which she would have been using to talk to Dooku. There is just a door and some battle droids in front of her. Even if she was using the handheld device that is shown earlier in the movie, there wasn't enough time for her to have put it away and gotten her lightsabers out, since Dooku's point of view shows her already turning toward Obi-wan.

Question: Are the events in this movie going to be considered canon for the time between Episodes II and III, or will the events in the Clone Wars TV show be considered canon, or both (if the events in the movie possibly take place after those in the show)?

Answer: Canon in the Star Wars universe is a somewhat complex term as it has several levels ordered in a hierarchy of precedence. Facts stated at a certain level are considered as canon, unless contradicted by something at a higher level of canonicity. The uppermost level of canonicity are the six live-action films. Lucas has stated that the television episodes (which include the Clone Wars movie, which can be considered as the first episodes of the TV series) are to be considered as the next level down in canonicity, so below the films, but above any other releases (books, comics and so forth). So, basically, yes, they're to be considered canon, except in any case where they contradict something established in the live-action films.
