Again, Filoni has stated that they're not ignoring the micro-series. IIRC he was supervisor on that series as well. This of course could have changed at some point...but he has given previous episodes stating that it wouldn't be affected.
Whether it's canon or not is not an issue here. The fact that you can't watch it anywhere any more
(unless you get it second hand or pirate it) is what I find so sad.
I beg to differ.
I found it in HMV, ok, I already have it so didn't need to get it, but thought I'd just mention that.
