Embed from Getty Images The Star Wars universe is big. Like really big. By now most or all of the Star Wars fans know that Ahsoka Tano, and possibly Ezra Bridger are headed to The Mandalorian season 2. Now it seems another Star Wars heavyweight could be headed to live action. Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Grand Admiral Thrawn is one of the most popular characters in Star Wars. He has appeared in novels, graphic novels as well as on Star Wars Rebels. Thrawn has yet to make it to any live action.
Timothy Zahn recently delivered fans two all new Thrawn novels. The draw around the character has made Thrawn a front runner for a character that fans would most like to see transition to a new Star Wars film, many fans had hoped that would happen with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, that was not the case.
Grand Admiral Thrawn, made his Star Wars debut in the Heir to the Empire novel. A member of the mysterious Chiss race, Thrawn (blue in color with red eyes) is an Imperial military commander who took control of the Galactic Empire five years after the events of Return of the Jedi.
As Star Wars moves forward in the post Skywalker story era, it is clear that new characters will be headed to both theaters as well as Disney Plus. There are many great and unique characters in the Star Wars universe.
If the report is correct Star Wars fans should be excited and very happy to see Thrawn in a live action setting. Will it lead to the big screen in a full length film? That is unknown at this time.
With Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni calling the Star Wars shots anything is possible. One thing is becoming more clear nearly every week, Favreau and Filoni are the right two people to move Star Wars forward in fresh new ways with fresh new stories to tell.
