Seems like a very fan-service move in my opinion. It makes no sense in any way.

Yes! Awesome! Thrawn comics were so good! One of the best stories, plus introduced sexy Mara Jade.

It makes complete sense in every way. Fans were angry at the dismissal of previous EU Canon and Thrawn was at the top of the list. By including him in Rebels it introduces a new generation to a character you would only know through the books/comics and reassures long-time fans that Disney isn't just throwing out good material but is willing to integrate it back into the universe.

It is a no-lose scenario for Disney and as you can plainly see by the overwhelming fan reaction much appriciated. Bring Zahn back to write the new book reassures fans that the beloved character will be handled by the man who created him and thus, not ruined.

I'm all for seeing Thrawn in the new season. He was such a good character in the EU, that putting him aside would be doing the SW universe a disservice all the way around. One of the things that makes (or will make) Disney a good caretaker of the SW universe is willingness to use good story material. Not just for fan service, but to do what was done with all the EU books and media. Keep the SW universe alive with entertaining stories and characters.   :wink:

There's a few things I always associate wih Thrawn, like Captain Pelleon, Ysalamir and Nhogri. I wonder how much will be included, considering they've reinstated the character rather than create new one with similar traits. And on that subject,is Kanan becoming Rahm Kota?

During the panel they said no Ysalamir, but they put those two lizards in there with him for the symbolism of it.
