So is the Itachi stuff Cannon or Filler? I know it's going to be based around the 2 Itachi Shinden Light novels but does that count as Cannon?

Depends on what you believe canon to be. The novels weren't written by Kishimoto, nor did he ever put out a statement that he considers them "canon" or something along those lines. He was the novels' illustrator though and Shueisha has been promoting the novels quite heavily through official timelines etc. The fanbase is split about it from what I can tell. Over at NF, most people regard them as non-canon. Whereas on the subreddit and Youtube, plenty of people will tell you they're canon or perhaps "semi-canon".

At the end of the day, it shouldn't really matter whether it's canon or not. What matters most is whether it's good.

Expectations for this aren't all that high considering what Studio Pierrot has been putting out as of late.

Are we up to the Itachi filler arc? Does anyone know what kind of story it's going to be if the arc hasn't started yet? I might, MIGHT watch it if it has an interesting premise and doesn't have too much to do with the Uchiha Clan massacre.
His past before the massacre...
Pretty much this. The novels cover the events from Itachi seeing the battlefield at age 4, going to the Academy, participating in the Chunin Exams, going on missions, ANBU, all the way up to the clan massacre. No Akatsuki stuff as far as I know.

Will last at least 9 episodes (based on the number of quizzes they're putting out simultaneously), after which the anime is going to return to manga story (as stated in Pierrot's New Year blog. Some news sites misinterpreted the translation and jumped to the conclusion that original story = SP's own filler whereas the Japanese text is referring to Kishimoto's original work.)

Awesome episode. The music made the scenes beautiful. I'm okay with Kaguya's pre-earth past remaining a mystery.
Next episode looks good for an outsourced one.

Can't they redo 2012 and 2014 with this quality..???

Yeah, canon will most likely end by end September. Hopefully the anime series will too.
