Why are these characters important?
The truth is that the appearance of all these characters makes all the sense in the world given how Star Wars: Rebels ended. This animated series stars Ezra, a young man from Lothal who joins the rebellion to fight the Galactic Empire. During his journey he will show leanings towards the force, for which he will receive training from a former Jedi Padawan, Kanan Jarrus.
Thrawn, meanwhile, is one of the most beloved characters from the Star Wars universe. His intelligence, his ability to take advantage of the enemy’s weaknesses and to understand the culture of all of them make him a fearsome adversary. Although he was born in the expanded universe, he was recovered in Rebels.
Star Wars: Ahsoka es a spin-off de The Mandalorian, whose third season will not be released in 2021. Instead, Lucasfilm prepares the landing of The Book of Boba Fett on Disney +, which will arrive next December. Fans of the galactic saga can currently enjoy Star Wars: The Bad Remittance, a continuation of the animated series The Clone Wars.
