One of the biggest announcements from Star Wars Celebration Europe recently was the news that Grand Admiral Thrawn would be featuring in the Star Wars: Rebels animated series. However, the news (revealed at the Rebels panel) was also accompanied by the reveal that a new Thrawn novel will hit shelves next year.
The book, titled Star Wars: Thrawn (the first canon novel to feature Thrawn), will be written by Thrawn trilogy author Timothy Zahn. In a video message broadcast to attendees at the Rebels panel, Zahn said:
“I want to take this opportunity to thank Dave Filoni and the rest of the Rebels crew for the incredible honor they have afforded me. I’m afraid I can’t reveal anything more than what you’ve already seen and heard. But I am very pleased with the direction they’re taking Grand Admiral Thrawn.”
The book is also Zahn’s first canon Star Wars novel.
Star Wars: Thrawn is scheduled for release in April 2017.
