Timothy Zahn, author of the Thrawn series, has made it very clear to Star Wars fans who have asked; is Thrawn Force Sensitive?

Grand Admiral Thrawn is a fascinating character. Also known as Mitth’raw’nuruodo. An officer of the Chiss Ascendancy who rose the rank of Grand Admiral in the Imperial Navy, the tales of this Star Wars character in the book series by Timothy Zahn has truly captured the imagination of the fandom.

Those who have read the books or watched the Star Wars: Rebels series will know that Thrawn is a master tactician. Regularly outsmarting his enemies by predicting the decisions they will most likely make in battle, a common question that has been raised is whether or not Thrawn is force sensitive?
