No they are not canon according to him. They are C-Canon, in his mind its only the Movies. And the movies are G-Canon.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

I would watch them because they were Star Wars. I'm sure the majority of us would prefer someone other than Lucas directing, however.
You will find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.

Your completely wrong there. The events of the EU in all aspects dont happen in the movie universe.

This. He actually stated in an interview that the EU is interesting, but that's about it.

If he did that, the combined nerdraging of KOTOR, film canon and extended universe fans would probably break the space-time continuum. (And I mean this in the nicest and most loving possible way!)

That'd be my guess, anyway.

Personally, if Lucas would stay out of the production and writing, and let BioWare tell the story in three full length Animated Features, they would be epic. Not a live action film. LA tends to restrict the writers and directors from really showing what they want people to see as they have envisioned it, without the restrictions of physical actors going through the motions. Animation allows you to push all the boundaries without the potential for injury or interruptions. It lets them include things and add more effects that could be made for a LA film. Nevermind the constant moving and building of sets and moving from one location to the next.

Let me say this. When you take an American concept and then have it done with Eastern Animation styles, it generally looks INCREDIBLE! On the reverse side though, when you take an Anime/Manga and let fricken Hollywood try and make it into a live action, it turns into a giant steaming load of crap.

Examples

Speed Racer: Great old anime back in the day. Horrible movie.

G-Force: Originally it was 5 People in bird-like spandex costumes controlling vehicles that merged into one air-craft and fought against invading extra-terrestrial forces and was originally called Gatchaman by the creator, Amano Yo****aka. It was also called "Battle of the Planets" prior to being simply called G-Force when brought to America. Hollywood turned it into freaking GUINEA PIGS!!!

Avatar -The Last Airbender-: ...do I even need to explain this abomination?

I think my point is clear.
CE Owner: ...what? I wanted the music. I like music.
Statement: SGRA's - I support them. Do you have a problem with that, Meatbag?

If Lucas thinks the EU and TOR are canon doesn't really matter to me. They are there and that's all I need. There probably won't be anymore Star Wars movies from him so there's no chance to contradict the EU.

I think my point is clear.

Actually, your last 2 examples are completely off base. G-Force, the guinea pig movie had no relation to the old Battle of the Planets...the name was just coincidence. They were a force of secret agent, super-spy guinea pigs.

And Avatar: The Last Air Bender is an American franchise to begin with. The live-action adaptation may have been crap, but that's not a "Americans ruining a Japanese IP" thing.

And your other side doesn't hold up either. The biggest examples of American IP -> Japanese Anime I can think of are the Marvel Comics Anime movies....Have you seen what they did to Wolverine?...ick.
