Old school Star Wars and Expanded Universe “Legacy” fans can get excited because Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is now selling Cartoon Boba Fett Plush and Grand Admiral Thrawn Wooden Figures.
According to WDWNT you coul only get Thrawn at a “Reservation only event” but he will be coming to Galaxy’s Edge at both parks. I believe the Boba Fett is out now in Florida as I’ve seen other people with the plush in hand.
It’s funny to me because Disney sure loves Thrawn now. They got rid of all the EU when they got the Star Wars IP, but now they are bringing him back and I’m sure Mara Jade will be resurrected as well. I’m a long time Grand Admiral Thrawn fan. I loved the Timothy Zahn books and I read his original trilogy books a few times each. Mara Jade is my spirit animal or character. So I am excited to see him return. But it’s just bittersweet since they de-canonized all of it.
Thrawn is going to be $19.99
As far as cartoon Boba Fett, this was the original version of the character that appeared in a different outfit for the Star Wars Holiday Special in 1978.
They are likely bringing him back for a couple of reasons 1. The Disney+ “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” show bringing back his popularity and 2. The new LEGO Star Wars holiday special. Frankly, it wouldn’t surprise me if they don’t have him hidden somewhere in the new LEGO special. If they didn’t that’s a shame on them and a missed opportunity for sure.
As it turns out we know the Boba Fett animator John Celestri! We got him in an interview on our sister channel Clownfish TV:
You can purchase the plush version of Cartoon Boba Fett for $22.99
