Thrawn As Star Wars’ Next Villain Can Finally Justify Lucas’ Original Title

"With Grand Admiral Thrawn set to be the New Republic era's main antagonist, the villain can finally justify George Lucas' name for Star Wars.

With Grand Admiral Thrawn being set up by Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau to be the overarching antagonist of the New Republic era, perhaps he can finally justify Lucas’ original title, Star Wars. More specifically, Thrawn's nature as a character, that being one of high military intellect, skillful battle planning and thorough research—a bit like a **** Sherlock Holmes—is bound to have a different set of consequences for the protagonists. Much in the same way that The Clone Wars brought us large-scale war in animation, Thrawn will be the perfect vehicle not only for a convincing antagonist but to bring all-out galactic warfare to live-action. "
