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.

A new trailer for the third season of the Star Wars: Rebels animated series has been released.

The trailer debuted at Star Wars Celebration Europe during the panel for the show. The panellists included Executive Producer Dave Filoni, Tiya Sircar (Sabine Wren) and Sam Witwer (Darth Maul).
The trailer confirmed the rumours that Legends character Grand Admiral Thrawn would be featuring in the third season. Thrawn originally appeared in his own trilogy of books (also known as the “Heir to the Empire” trilogy).
