    So as we all know Thrawn was mentioned in the latest episode so let’s discuss that and if he’ll show up in the show

    I would've said he'll first show up again in the Rebels sequel but this recent interview from Giancarlo Esposito has me thinking otherwise.

    "When people flow out of control and there are all these different Moffs who've been assigned different areas to be wardens of, isn't there one person or someone that may have guidance over all of them? They're questions that are answered." - Giancarlo Esposito

    I don't think that will be the case.

    Grand Admiral Thrawn is the big bad for pre TFA stories. Gideon will be this shows big bad, but Thrawn is big bad ultimate befor Palpatine comes into play again. He has the biggest force yet. Also Thrawn is the msartest guy around. he might not be Gideon's boss but he is the bigger force.

    Of course he will show up. You don't drop a name-bomb the way they did with no payoff. Even if it had been a completely new name, I would've expected the character to appear later on. It was too significant to be a mere easter egg.

    What I took from the cannon Thrawn books was that Thrawn was loyal to particularly to Palpatine, now that he's dead I imagine he's trying to get back to the Chiss Ascendancy.

    I originally thought this question will be dealt with in the rumored Rebels sequel series, now I'm having second thoughts after seeing the above quote. It would make sense if defeating Thrawn is part of the endgame of the show, even though I imagined Thrawn more as an anti hero but I guess that's not where they're going with that character. There's also the question whether the search for Ezra already happened or not, some reference books put it closer to RotJ than Mandalorian but maybe it will be retconned later since there wasn't any specific date given in the Rebels epilogue. Sabine's absence and Ahsoka's appearance kinda makes me believe that search still hasn't begun 5 years after RotJ.

    I think they are sperate but Thrawn is bigger villain. of the canon of all pre-TFA.

    I wonder if Din would have heard of Thrawn as he was partly responsible for the Dutchess weapon.

    Also to be honest I don’t want Thrawn to be apart of the empire anymore the books made it seem like Thrawn sided with Palpatine not because he liked what he was doing but to protect the Chiss

    I think they’re building to some sort of MCU style television universe with multiple spin offs. We will see Thrawn, but might be a different series.

    If Thrawn is still a villain, it means that Ezra's positive influence to people around him didn't work on him which is interesting (well, it didn't really work on Maul either but considering he's a more "pragmatic" kind of villain, I would have expected him to work with Ezra in some way). Maybe he did corrupt Ezra over time since he wouldn't have his support system in the Unknown Regions like he did in the series.

    I thinkk when we see Ezra he is not the same and more dark character. I think Thrawn have been using him.

    I don't think so, Thrawn is good at that sort of thing, but Ezra has resisted manipulation before.
