About Grand Admiral Thrawn
Grand Admiral Thrawn is the commander of the Galactic Empire’s forces following their defeat in Return of the Jedi. He is first introduced to us in a 1991 novel by Timothy Zahn titled Heir to the Empire, which is the first in a trilogy of books focusing on Grand Admiral Thrawn. He is known as a strong military leader, a skilled tactician and a ruthless leader who was able to lead the Empire to many victories despite their small numbers.
When the series was being resurrected to the big screen in 2014, Lucasfilm declared that most of the products produced since 1977 were now considered non-canon to the Star Wars story, however in the animated series Star Wars Rebels, he was re-introduced into the storyline. Among Star Wars fans, he is well received, and many people still have a strong desire to see Thrawn adapted more heavily into Star Wars works.
