Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Ahsoka shows up with Jabba the Hutt's son at the palace right in the nick of time before Jabba's goons kill Anakin. Padme communicates with Jabba and informs him that Ziro (Jabba's uncle) cooperated with Count Dooku in the kidnapping of his son. Jabba and Padme agree upon the Republic using the Outer Rim trade routes (which Jabba controls). Dooku reports to Darth Sidious/Palpatine that the plot to obtain access to the trade routes has failed but Sidious is confident that it's only a small victory for the Jedi and the Republic and that his plot hasn't failed...

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.

Trivia: When Asajj Ventris is reporting to Count Dooku for the second time and says she will redouble her efforts to find Anakin, Dooku says, "I hope so, for your sake - " He is then cut off. This line connects with part of a conversation in episode 6 of the TV show.

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.
