I can't help but wonder if the current ST went a little bit like the early days of the old Expanded Universe - bringing back Palpatine in some shape or form because they couldn't think of anything else.Siamese Sith wrote: ↑November 11th, 2019, 5:57 pm If you’ve watched Rebels you know Grand Admiral Thrawn is Cannon AND he’s more likely alive than Palpatine should be. My question is simple, would you rather have Palpatine as the puppet-master of the ST or Thrawn? I personally think using Thrawn would be a much better choice than Palpatine. It preserves Anakin’s legacy and all fans would know who he was and the buzz would spark the interest of casuals!
And then finally they came up Thrawn and produced one of the best sets of novels the EU ever saw, as well as one of the most in-depth characters.
So the movies are just throwing back to all the old characters; but the cartoons are able to take their time and flesh out new (or renewed) ones.
Just a thought.
