    BTW the concept art confirms that the mountain seen at the end is Mount Tantiss from Wayland, a key location from the original Thrawn trilogy.

    Wonder if this might eventually mean we'll get a Disney canon version of C'Baoth? Maybe go with Zahn's original idea, which was to have a crazy Obi-Wan clone.

    With a bigger role for Thrawn forth coming I wouldn't be surprised if we saw this tie into him especially as the way things ended up with him at Rebel's finale would lead up to a fun way to re-imagine Zahn's original Thrawn story as taking place post-return of the Jedi once again.

    I think the mountain also held a cloaking device, although I think those have been fairly ill-defined in Star Wars compared to Star Trek.


    Then again, what Thrawn did in the trilogy wasn't so much because of the technology itself but how he used it (hiding TIEs in "empty" cargo ships, fake asteroids, making it appear as though ships were able to pierce planetary shields by having cloaked ships under the shield fire at the same time as visible ships above the shield etc)

    If they do it, I'd bet good money the clone will be of Ezra.

    I do find it interesting that they have all of this world building from the Thrawn trilogy in place, and he's apparently appearing in the Ahsoka series. Which, assuming it is concurrent with The Mandalorian in the timeline, would be right about the same time period when the Legends Thrawn trilogy took place. That seems too serendipitous to be purely coincidental.

    It definitely seems planned, and it's a great idea as it allowed them to have their cake and eat it too. By re-introducing him earlier in continuity it not only gave them a competent Vader level threat for Rebels but it also allowed them to build up his character prior to make the eventual adaptation of the original novels feel all the more powerful.

    I don't think we'll get it, but I'd love an animated version of the original Thrawn trilogy, it would be like getting the sequel trilogy we all wanted.

    Kind of funny, the sequel trilogy takes place around the same time Ben/Kylo's LEGENDS counterpart, Jacen, goes to the dark side.

    Even more bizarrely, the same series with Jacen going dark *also* saw the “middle” creator, someone who elsewhere showed they had immense talent and consistency in qualitative, undermine and go against the work of the other creators by being distracted by their own shiny toy and mild contempt for conventional Star Wars storytelling at the time.

    Also interestingly, the “shiny toy” that time were the “Mandalorians 1.0” that Lucas would effectively retcon with his “Mandalorians 2.0” before Filoni and Favreau condensed them into their current “3.0” form.

    Filoni is definitely trying to make sure all his series and stories from the same 40 year time period work together, which I love. Right now I’m half expecting Omega to show up in The Book Of Boba Fett.

    I've been thinking we'd see adult Omega there. I wonder if she'll meet Boba in this show.

    I'd cast Keisha Castle Hughes (She was the current Queen of Naboo in Episode III, but had a lot of makeup and was on screen for a few seconds) although she isn't quite the right age, neither is Morrison who is 20 years older than Fett (Of course the Sarlacc scars help hide that). Star Wars has never really been that consistent with actors playing their age anyway....


    Curiously Temura did have a real life sister with blond hair, although she wasn't an actress but a Haka singer/dancer. (She died in 2009).
