The Mandalorian has opened up the door for a lot of live-action Star Wars series options. Obi-Wan Kenobi is getting his own series, there’s a series in development for Cassian Andor, and there are rumors of Ahsoka Tano series, and there’s no doubt that there are more in development that have yet to be announced, like a possible series that focuses on Admiral Thrawn.
According to entertainment scooper Daniel Richtman, Lucasfilm is developing a live-action Admiral Thrawn series. There are no other additional details to share, but this is a bit of news that should excite some Star Wars fans.
Grand Admiral Thrawn was created by Timothy Zahn and made his debut in the novel Heir to the Empire. He’s a member of the Chiss race, and is an Imperial military commander who took control of the Galactic Empire five years after the events of Return of the Jedi.
The character was pulled out of the extended universe and explored in the animated series Star Wars Rebels and made his debut in Season 3 and was wonderfully voiced by Lars Mikkelsen. The character has yet to make his live-action debut, but it looks like that could change. He was also explored in two additional recent Thrawn novels that Zahn wrote as well as a comic series.
It’ll be interesting to see if the character ends up making his live-action debut at some point in The Mandalorian before getting his own show. I guess we’ll have to wait and see, but in the meantime let us know what you think about the possibility of a live-action Thawn series!
