Day 22: favourite episode from #starwarsrebels . Although there are some very good and memorable episodes within the series, my all-time moment which I will substitute as my favourite episode is the part trailer to the second season in which Grand Admiral Thrawn is revealed.
Before Star Wars was purchased by Disney, there was an expanded universe (in the form of books, comics, games...) in which the story was continued. Grand Admrial Thrawn (real name Mitth'raw'nuruodo) was a grand admiral of the Galactic Empire that appeared after the defeat of Emperor Palpatine in episode VI. The way he approached strategy and problems differed greatly from the rest of the empire making him an entirely different type of foe. Sadly with Disney's purchase of Star Wars, his story was moved to #starwarslegends .
However, thanks to Dave Filoni Grand Admiral Thrawn was rescued from the confines of legends and became an official part of the Star Wars universe. By becoming the main enemy in the third season of Rebels. This scene I have shared is the first time we learn if this and I couldn't think of a better way to reveal this to the fans. As a bonus, the lizard statues that appear behind him are #ysalamiri which are creatures he uses extensively in the legends stories to shield him from the force. This was a great easter egg for the fans of the legends.
Some favorite photos of my Thrawn cosplay at Star Wars Celebration Orlando in April.
Photo 1: Standing in front of one of the various backdrops at the convention.
Photo 2: These wampas were posing for a group of people on the show floor. Before they hurried off, they requested a photo with me and had me pulled from the crowd.
Photo 3: In the hotel room in the middle of makeup take down (hence the one contact out). This is after wearing it for over 12 hours.
