Thrawn is now part of Star Wars canon

Recommended Posts

Holy crap. Thrawn is officially part of the new Star Wars canon. And there will be a new Thrawn novel. :D I'm so happy. :D This obviously means the Chiss are canon now as well. I need this book. Hell, I might even have to watch Star Wars Rebels now.


Some things to note: 1) He’s definitely referred to as “Grand Admiral.” 2) There’s no mention of anything else from Heir to the Empire or the other two books of the trilogy, so don’t go think those novels have suddenly been added wholesale to the new canon. 3) He’s being voiced by Lars Mikkelsen, brother of Rogue One star Mads. 3) Timothy Zahn sent a video message giving his full approval. Nice!

Update: Zahn is writing a new Star Warsnovel titled—wait for it—Thrawn, due 2017. This isn’t just a cameo, guys.

I forgot to mention this yesterday after I watched the new Star Wars Rebels season 3 trailer (I lost it when I heard him speaking and they showed his face, gah the fanboy in me is so damn happy I might actually start watching Rebels). While this makes me happy beyond belief, I mean come on it's FREAKING THRAWN, I'm somewhat scared as to what this means for his character post RotJ since we haven't seen nor heard of him in TFO or any of its books. Hopefully the book says he's alive and well, would love for him to make an appearance in Episode 9 (I doubt he'll be in 8) or any upcoming movies similar to the Rogue One and Han Solo movies.

      A remake could be good if it's done right. But those games were so huge it'd be a bigger task than remaking Final Fantasy 7. Meanwhile I still haven't played the second KOTOR game.

      Sounds like a good title to me. The movie is going to pick up right where the last movie ended.

      Maybe he'll be a good Han Solo. I still have the old Han Solo Trilogy of books in my head so it'll be a hard watch for me since all that canon will be thrown out the window.

      All I want is a solid Star Wars campaign based game. I hope respawn can do it justice.

      Here is the highly anticipated trailer for Star Wars Episode VII!
      Ah, the return of practical effects! It's nice it's mixed in with CGI. The whistle of the X-Wing thrusters is a welcome return. I heard an imperial drone before the first scene cut off as well. Say what you want about JJ Abrams. With Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark) back on board, I have high hopes this is going to be amazing!
