As if we weren’t hyped enough for Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian. Now we’ve learned Thrawn and Mara Jade could make an appearance in the Disney+ series.
There’s a good reason why The Mandalorian has gotten Star Wars fans excited. It’s the first-ever live-action series we’ve ever had. From the look of the official trailer, it’s going to be badass. There are some amazing cast members set to appear in the series. And now, there is a good chance characters such as Thrawn and Mara Jade could make an appearance, according to Jon Favreau.
The debate continues on whether they can be introduced considering the whole Legends side of the Star Wars universe is no longer considered canon. Especially in the case of Thrawn, with about half of his original Legends story now canon with his introduction in the Star Wars: Rebels series and the Timothy Zahn novels. What is undeniably obvious and undebatable, is Star Wars fans want to see both characters, and others, appear on-screen.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Favreau made it known he is interested in the idea of such characters being included in The Mandalorian. When asked specifically about characters such as Thrawn and Mara Jade, and whether they could show up at some point in the Disney+ series. He responded by saying:

"I think this show offers an opportunity to bring in all those elements so no matter what your flavor of Star Wars ice cream you like there will be something to enjoy."
This is beyond amazing news. Like I said at the very start, The Mandalorian already looks amazing, but to introduce other characters, especially those we have been asking for for years now is simply amazing.
