‘Star Wars’ Rumor: Thrawn Could Appear in Upcoming ‘Rogue One’ Cassian Andor Series Coming to Disney+


We have another new Star Wars rumor for you. According to We Got This Covered, there is a possibility that the new Cassian Andor series coming to Disney+ could have Thrawn in it. (I keep wanting to call him Grand Admiral Thrawn.)

Thrawn was originally from the Timothy Zahn trilogy that took place after Return of the Jedi. This is also where Mara Jade came from. Thrawn was later added to Star Wars: Rebels and there were some new books written about him

Now it seems he could be added to the upcoming show and receive a spin-off series

“Thrawn is set to make his live-action debut in the debut in the show, before going on to get his own Disney Plus series at some point in the future. It’s unclear what role he’ll play and how involved he’ll be – it could just be a cameo – but we’ll certainly be seeing him in some capacity.

I wonder if this is where Mara Jade will fit in because we’ve been hearing rumors that Disney wants to bring her into the shows too.

To recap Disney buys Star Wars and says the Expanded Universe (EU) is no longer cannon, then they start pulling out characters like Thrawn and possibly Mara Jade and Prince Xizor. Heck they put Dash Rendar’s Outrider in Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker. Popular characters with long time fans. Let’s just hope they are handled well. Rogue One is arguably one of the best Star Wars movies Disney has done with the franchise, and they have brought in the co-writer of the film to show run the new Cassian Andor show.  That gives me some hope, but I’m going to not get too excited until I see if Disney uses Thrawn and Mara Jade, and how they use them.
