Fuck, I need to watch Star Wars Rebels. Fuck!, I need to watch Star Wars Rebels. Will someone please remind me to watch it? Send me a message right around 4 pm on a Saturday. I’ll hop to it. Redeem myself. If you don’t remind me though, my failure is upon you. Upon you!
Frak. Why aren’t I watching Star Wars Rebels. Also, FWIW, I’d love Thrawn’s appearance in Rebels to be eventually parlayed into a cinematic appearance. Am I dreaming?
Oh shit! Grand Admiral Thrawn is canon! Canon is Grand Admiral Thrawn! Someday I’ll sit down and watch all of Rebels (seriously), and I’ll partially do so because I love Grand Admiral Thrawn so much. Who is now canon. Again! What was once canon is now canon once more.
The Prequels left me down as futz during my adolescence, but the Grand Admiral Thrawn trilogy definitely helped fill some of that hurt in my heart. When Disney announced they were submarining the entire Expanded Universe, I lamented the (potential) loss of two characters: Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Mara Jade.
It appears that list of mourning is down to one.
