Seriously, some people were too old / busy to watch rebels and read a book or two.

Probably the smartest thing about tying thrawn into rebels and the mandalorian is it resonates with multiple generations.

FYI Timothy Zahn has released a new trilogy recently about Thrawn in his earlier years. They’re canon too. I’ve only read the first so far but it’s pretty good. If you like Thrawn you’ll definitely like it.

phileris42

37 points

There's a finished, canon trilogy on his years in the Empire (from the time he joined, till the time at the end of Rebels). The newest, unfinished Ascendancy trilogy revisits a younger Thrawn in the time before he joined the Empire (i.e. his time in the Chiss Ascendancy). Only the first book is released; the second is coming in April. Zahn has future plans too, so a third canon trilogy is not completely out of the question.

Ehh, yeah you’re right. I mean they portrayed him correctly except in the Ryloth episode but thrawn belongs in a book. The only few times I actually felt like he was thrawn was S3E4, S3E17, and S3E21&22 he wasn’t there much in season 4 since that was mainly about Pryce and Rukh who were under thrawns control

That was the problem. Thrawn's whole shtick is that he is virtually unbeatable. But when you have a show like this, the main characters can't ACTUALLY lose anything important. The only way for the situation to be rectified without damaging Thrawn's character is for a deus ex machina to save the main characters.

I just started reading the Thrawn trilogy for the first time, and I find it neat that Rebels has been able to make use of aspects of the character that Zahn wrote, such as Thrawn's appreciation of art and culture as strategic elements. Also the Chimera, captain peleon, etc. How does it work that official canon products like Rebels was able to use material from non canon expanded universe stuff? Did Zahn invent the character of Thrawn?

The ending Thrawn deserves is falling in love with a museum curator who causes him to reconsider his appreciation for art and essentially challenge him with the central question: has your love of art aligned with your use of it to destroy the artists you admire and all the things that inspired them?

thrashinbatman

lol for real. Daala just took L after L in that trilogy, and for the majority of the time she's supposed to be the primary villain. I don't think she did a single thing to warrant being treated as a real threat. The only actual villain worth a shit in that series is Exar Kun, and he gets offed way before the climax of the third book.

Snips_Tano

Was always funny they kept Daala around in the entire EU and every time she just took L after L. She became freaking Team Rocket.

She had one good moment - tricking and offing the Moffs she gathered - and then went right back to being totally incompetent.

That she was in charge of the New Republic in the end was hilariously bad.

Cool, Rebels has more than just thrawn though. I mean the first season is a chore. Season 2 is only good with existing characters but some things are ruined by Ezra. Season 3 is a good season and Ezra is still annoying but he becomes tolerable. Season 4 is very good, dare I say clone wars level good since Ezra is pretty likeable, and the character development and fillers from the past 3 all play off. As well as 2 episodes that tie into the mandalorian and 2 episodes that tie into rogue one. Overall the good outweighs the bad in the show so it’s worth a try

Imo season 3 is better than season 4. Something about season 4 doesn't feel right to me, like the wolves feel weird and the mandalorian episodes weren't even that good. Also I wouldn't say clone wars quality, because if you compare season 1 of TCW to season 1 of rebels then rebels win by miles. Season 2 of rebels is also better than TCW season 2. I would say that season 3 of TCW and rebels are at the same level and season 4 of TCW is better than rebels'. So yeah its tricky to compare rebels to TCW

It's not about knowing who Thrawn is, it's about knowing why Ahsoka is trying to track him down and what that means for characters we might see in live action.

There are a lot of implications there that I won't spoil.

SPOILERS FOR REBELS BELOW.

In the first few seasons of Rebels, the crew is doing missions based on the Intel of "Fulcrum", an unknown agent helping coordinate the rebellion. Fulcrum is later revealed to be Ahsoka.

At one point, Ezra (a barely trained padawan) meets Maul on the Sith world of Malachor. Stuff happens, and Ahsoka shows up. More stuff happens and Vader shows up.
Ahsoka jumps in to save Ezra from Vader and they duel. At this point, Ahsoka realizes what (who) Vader is. They clash blades as the sith temple closes up.
Later we see just Vader walking out.

Fast forward a bit, they access the network of the living force and... Sorta time travel? Long story short, Ezra pulls Ahsoka out of certain death against Vader and they both escape to different places / times barely escaping Palpy's magic.

Eventually the Rebels clash with Thrawn more directly and temporarily disable Thrawn's cruiser. Ezra, with Thrawn aboard, warps it into uknown space.

Fast forward a few more years and we see Ahsoka and Sabine (mandalorian girl who gave the darksaber to Bo Katan) gearing up to go find Ezra.

We also see Ahsoka walk out just after Vader, into that triangle corridor. While it later turns out she gets there via time portal, we've always known she survived, just not how.

So it seems the time travel stuff was less about bringing her back and more about trying to tie Rebels in to the rest of the franchise via mass referencing.

Sorta waterskied over a ramp and flew over a shark. Why does everything need to have fucking time travel in it?

Filoni doesn't want to kill his wifu. Like seriously, he created Time Travel clishe just to save Ahsoka. No one else. Her arc already ended, just let her go.

She's been one of the most relatable and well received characters in the franchise since Luke. I'm not saying you can't kill off your main characters, but there is still so much more you can do with her.

You also don't need to know to enjoy her appearance in Mandalorian. It just serves as a cliffhanger and setup for her story in her own show, which I'm sure will get into all of that.

All of season 2 felt like "Here is this new character/plot point, now get ready to go watch their show".

Mando started to feel like a secondary character in his own series, and was just flying around to set up new shows for other characters.
