    Is there a hologram of him in the trailer for the new Ahsoka show?

    Someone brought up a good point. Why does Ezra not have his own thread.

    well @Bibliora I will answer that with this.

    So what has Ezra been up to for the last decade? Is he working with thrawn? Working against him married to him? The options are truly endless.

    After years of reading (and occasionally proposing) multiple theories about Ezra (with him being one of the main candidates for being a young Smoke around 2015-2017) and eventually none of them including him disappearing with Thrawn and space whales I understood that predicting about Bridger is pointless, he is going to surprise either way.

    Hmmm. So, just how many theories are there about what Ezra's been up to? With the announcement that the inquisitor is named Marrok, it's most likely it's not Ezra. But then again, he could change his name.

    I still like my idea that they have been happily married for 8 years. And adopted two chiss children. But I have a feeling that’s just me :p

    If he's doing anything associated with Thrawn or the Chiss he's probably a hyperspace navigator, an exceptionally important role in the Unknown Regions touched upon the New Thrawn Trilogy and very likely the sole reason Thrawn might keep Ezra alive after he yeeted his entire blockade across the GFFA.

    Yep. It’s what the Chiss use force sensitives for. Navigation. Weirdly enough they are called Skywalkers in the Chiss Ascendency. This is pointed out by both Anakin and Thrawn at one point or another.

    also an interesting thing about these Skywalkers. Most “lose” their force sensitivity during their preteen years. Some rare ones keeping it into their teenage years and even rarer adulthood. If I recall it has been ages since I read the book they were all either predominantly girls or completely girls.

    a lot of people assume Ezra yeeted himself and the 7th fleet into Chiss space but there is no indication of this whatsoever. Although it’s likely thrawn eventually made his way back there.

    not that I think anything from the Zhan novels will appear in Ahsoka. And if it does I wouldn’t be shocked if it’s slightly changed. Just as they slightly changed stuff from the aftermath trilogy when they brought it into stuff like Mando and Book of Boba Fett.

    I’m not expecting the Chiss to factor into this story at all and I don’t think Ezra and Thrawn are in that part of the galaxy.

    Based on the trailers, comments from the cast and a few...other things, I don’t think Thrawn has actually returned to the known galaxy yet and Pellaeon is misleading the Shadow Council a bit. I think wherever he is, he’s still trapped there either by the natural elements of that part of space that make it difficult for non-Purgills to move through or because Ezra is actively working to keep the Seventh Fleet marooned (perhaps with the help of natives from that area).

    I don’t expect chiss space to appear in this show. Or the Ascendancy be mentioned. However Zhan has said he wants to do two more thrawn trilogies. One following up with Thrawn and Ezra between Ahsoka and Rebels and one following up with Eli Vanto.

    So what I meant to say was I expect thrawn to have made his way back there during the intervening ten years but to have left by the time Ahsoka will run into him in the present.

    no I expect very little reference to any of the canon thrawn books.

    I don’t think Thrawn has to return to the Chiss Ascendancy for Timothy Zahn to write novels about him, and I think that’s the whole point of the Eli Vanto/Ar’alani trilogy. That series can cover what’s going on with the Chiss and Grysk while the rest of the narrative with Thrawn takes place elsewhere.

    Touché.

    My overall point though is that I agree with you. I doubt the new canon novels will be referenced. Hell I doubt there will be any major references to HTTE and that trilogy. Other than locations and background things such as the force rejecting lizards appearing as background art in rebels. I know how to say it but not spell it so I won’t even try
    https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Ysalamiri

    these things appeared as statues in rebels.

    At best what you can expect is such a loose adaptation of the trilogy it would hardly be called an adaptation.

    Anyway I can’t wait to see my third favorite Jedi again.

    I do wonder if he will even still be calling himself a Jedi by this time

    oh also I am hopeful that Ezra will wear more than just stromtrooper armor and his yellow, orange brown suit he wore throughout the 4 seasons of rebels.

    that’s what most excites me about this show. Ezra getting new clothes.

    I guess I forgot that Ezra’s main outfit stayed the same throughout all 4 seasons.

    I think the only main protagonist other than Kaz and Mando where that happens.
    Although Mando makes sense.

    I just like the visual change.

    With Ahsoka we have her first outfit her second which comes in season 3 and she has two outfits in season 7.

    Omega has two different main outfits as well.

    Sabine makes up with it in the hair department. Ironically Sabine’s hair color’s ranking matches my ranking of rebels seasons 3,1,2,4 weird how that worked out.

    I find Orange to be a bit tired for protagonists, definitely in animated mediums, plus Sabine apparently likes it too. So hopefully he'll get a change in wardrobe.

    That isn't Inquisitor Armor, sorry Marrok theorists.

    It puzzles me that Ezra hasn't been featured much in the trailers. It's not like his character is a surprise, because we know the actor who is playing him and even seen him as a hologram. I can only suspect that he won't play a big part in season 1 beyond an appearance in the penultimate or final episode. Perhaps the scenes he is a part of are too big of a spoiler about which direction the show is going and the producers only want to reveal the 'normal world' of the heroes in the trailers. He may have a bigger part in season 2, but I'm not expecting him to be a main character this season.

    On the other hand, I wouldn't be terribly shocked if he is killed shortly after making his first appearance. If he is killed by Thrawn or Thrawn's forces/minions, then the the audience will believe Thrawn is a very real threat. That might work better for the story than throwing a redundant Jedi character into the mix. Then, the show can focus on the Ahsoka and Sabine relationship and give Sabine an anger/revenge narrative for season 2, while establishing Thrawn as the biggest villain.

    I'll say it here first, Ezra kills Baylan Skoll, the biggest baddie established early on in the show, then Thrawn kills Ezra, establishing a new big baddie.

    His main outfit didn’t. Well at least the top didn’t.

    I just double checked again. His pants are different in season 1 and 4 and he’s also missing his little vest. Again the differences are so minimal it’s hard to tell. The color scheme is the same.

    I cannot say how much I hope this isn’t the case, terrible terrible idea after Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Having important characters popping up after so long away only to kill them off is terrible, especially if it is just to establish Thrawn as a big baddy when he already is by simply being called heir to the empire and given his intelligence and very cool theme song from Rebels, having him kill Ezra after he just shows up would be redundant and infuriating.

    Often 90% of the trailers for the lucasfilm shows come from the first two episodes. So the absense of Ezra may indicate he’s more in the later part of the series

    He’ll likely have a radical new look and or his appearance is itself a spoiler for something.

    I will be full of growing irritation if Ezra doesn't show up until the last episode. I've been pondering his fate for a long while and my personal hope is comes back and becomes Jacen's master. If he isn't wearing orange, so much the better.

    Could Ezra have been stuck in the WBW since the end of Rebels, all that time he's had the voice of Palpatine tormenting him, even after Palpatine dies in ROTJ his spirit still torments Ezra. The Ezra we meet in Ahsoka is changed, he's not the firebrand youth anymore. Both Thrawn and Ahsoka have been searching for Ezra, each for their differing reasons.
