Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Episode 6:Grand Admiral Thrawn

Grand Admiral Thrawn is the main adversary of the Ghost crew in the third season. While he allowed rebels to escape once more in the last episode (Hera’s Heroes), fans speculated that Thrawn has bigger plans that he’ll implement in the long run. We got a real insight into thecalm and calculated Imperial in the last episode. How he uses his knowledge of the culture of getting want he wants.Unlike Darth Vader or so to speak, any other villainin the franchise, he doesn’t use force or fighting right. His low cunning lies in his words.

Back whenShowrunner Dave Filoni hada chat withio9at Star Wars Celebration, he spoke of the difficulty of bringing back Thrawn in Star Wars Rebels Season 3, who doesn’tplay a part in the Original Trilogy. “We need to know what our end game is for this character, [and] I think [that] is exciting. You go through a number of questions. ‘Does he survive? Does he not survive?’ We’ve been the architects of that as we’ve been going. I think we have a nice path figured out for Mr Thrawn. I wouldn’t bring him back lightly without that plan.”

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Episode 6:“The Last Battle” will air on Saturday, Oct. 22, at 8 p.m. on Disney XD.
