During Tuesday's episode Ahsoka, titled "Far, Far Away," Lars Mikkelsen finally got to bring Grand Admiral Thrawn to live-action. The actor previously lent his voice to the villain in Star Wars Rebels, though Thrawn actually originated in Timothy Zahn's Expanded Universe trilogy of novels dubbed "Heir to the Empire."

The actor's take on Thrawn once again didn't disappoint and we're obviously eager to learn more about him over the next two weeks. Unsurprisingly, the Imperial is definitely up to no good and has seemingly aligned himself with Peridia's Nightsisters, raising an army of undead "Night Troopers" to do his bidding. 

We dread to think what became of them during the decade or so they were trapped in a distant Galaxy, including how they all ended up, well, dead. Either way, Thrawn seems perfectly happy to have a force willing to do anything and everything he commands courtesy of The Great Mothers and their dark magic. 

At first glance, all seems well with the Imperial despite the fact he's seemingly embraced the supernatural (which seems odd for someone so logical). On closer inspection, we see his pristine uniform is actually quite damaged and tattered, suggesting Thrawn is putting on something of a show. 

Could he have lost his mind during the time he's spent on Peridia or is he too only still around thanks to The Great Mothers? Like his ship, the Chimaera, and that seemingly undead army, it seems Thrawn is a little worse for wear and this definitely feels more important than a simple means of showing the passing of time. 

We still don't know what the villain is transporting back to his Galaxy but we'd bet on him having greater ambitions than simply crushing the New Republic. However, that may depend on whether Dave Filoni has taken into account Zahn's recent novels and what those revealed about Thrawn's desire to help his people, the Chiss. 

Let us know your thoughts on this newly revealed Ahsoka detail in the comments section.

Set after the fall of the Empire, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy. 

In addition to Rosario Dawson in the title role, the series stars Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, the late Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, Ivanna Sakhno as Shin Hati, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, David Tennant as Huyang, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Eman Esfandi appearing as Ezra Bridger. 

Ahsoka was written by Dave Filoni, who executive produces alongside Jon Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, and Carrie Beck. Directors include Filoni, Steph Green, Peter Ramsey, Jennifer Getzinger, Geeta Vasant Patel, and Rick Famuyiwa. 

The first six episodes of Ahsoka are now streaming on Disney+.

"Generates Discussion Among Fans" - Not on Sci-fi Gazette it isn't.

@Humby - 😭😂😂😂😭
MotherFuckerJon - 9/23/2023, 3:03 PM
I think Thrawn too is a zombie.
harryba11zack - 9/23/2023, 3:05 PM
why she fat?
JobinJ - 9/23/2023, 3:14 PM
What a lame article.
TheComedian67 - 9/23/2023, 3:20 PM
Or maybe, his clothes are tattered because it's been a decade.
WruceBayne - 9/23/2023, 3:35 PM
@TheComedian67 - 100% THIS! Seems like fans are setting themselves up again for another “Rey’s Parents identity” letdown.
BobbyDrake - 9/23/2023, 3:47 PM
@TheComedian67 - Yup, and what this detail actually shows is how well he’s taken care of his uniform since it’s still so clean and pristine after all this time.
StSteven - 9/23/2023, 5:08 PM
@BobbyDrake - Exactly. I mean, based on what we’ve seen of the planet so far I highly doubt that there’s a decent dry cleaner anywhere close by so that means ‘Ol Thrawny’s probably had to wash that shit by hand, which has got to be a lot of work. I’m guessing that he didn’t plan on being stranded in another galaxy for a decade so he probably didn’t pack any extra clothes and I wouldn’t trust washing my one and only uniform to a bunch of zombies if I were him.

And if people are making a big deal out of what his uniform looks like, just imagine what shape his underwear is in. Yuck!
SuperZeroCustmz - 9/24/2023, 12:17 AM
@StSteven - Idk , I know of some GREAT dry cleaners on the 6 corners of wadiwan 01 and Dooba clank junction past the far corners of galaxy X10956387 6665412345678901112 . But don't forget your star wars black Imperial credits and a nice fat collection of 3.5 inchers. The Jawa's are dicks if you forget your 3.5's ... don't believe me ?
you should I'm a 5 time u.s. earth planet Cosplayer and comic collector. I know ALL the best dry cleaners in the star wars universe
StSteven - 9/24/2023, 2:14 PM
@SuperZeroCustmz - I'll have to remember that the next time I need to get my cosplay Jedi robes cleaned (those things can be a real bitch to clean, especially if I get any imaginary blood on them while space-LARPing). Unfortunately I don't have any black Imperial credits and I'm fresh out of 3.5 inches, so hopefully the owners of the dry cleaners are susceptible to the Jedi mind trick in which case I'll just say "If you are looking for payment, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my robes go now, that'll be the end of it." It's worked for me in the past but that was under somewhat different circumstances.
SuperZeroCustmz - 9/30/2023, 2:24 AM
@StSteven - If only other commenters felt the way we do about some of these possible conversations.
I used to be great at recognizing a jedi Mind Trick until you used a jedi mind trick to make me forget about all Jedi mind Tricks and now my head is spinning
StSteven - 9/30/2023, 3:17 PM
@SuperZeroCustmz - Oh, sorry about that, but to be fair I had no idea that I could even do the Jedi mind trick until YOU used a Jedi mind trick to make me believe that I could and then BAM! there you go. That being said I think that I may be a bit out of control with it: I don't pay for things any more (the people at the stores just tell me to take whatever I want), restaurants bring me free food every day, I test drove a Porsche and the dealer told me I could just have it, my neighbors do all my yard work for me, my kids want to spend time with me, and my wife wants to have sex with me again. Like all the time. AND, get this, SHE does all the work. So I may, just may be abusing it.

Then again, I may be doing it just right. Just a sec... "Honey, you want to give me a blow job. Right now. While I watch "Ahsoka"."...

Nope, I'm doing it just right 😉.
SuperZeroCustmz - 10/27/2023, 11:48 PM
@StSteven - oh man ! the world needs more people like yourself. Comedy would be ok again and we would have some great conversations online and maybe make a new friend. see you in the next comment
StSteven - 10/28/2023, 6:34 PM
@SuperZeroCustmz - Thanks! I know that my sense of humor isn't for everyone (sometimes I have to really exaggerate thing just so that folks know that I'm kidding, and even then...), but if I can entertain at least some folks and help keep the atmosphere around here light and friendly despite differing opinions on various topics, I'll keep it up until an angry mob shows up with the torches and pitchforks. 😉 TTYL

Thrawns belly looking like he was sitting around depressed and doing nothing but eating Imperial Biscuits while exiled.
AlexCorvis - 9/23/2023, 3:46 PM
His uniform is ripped probably because he's been in exile (or however it was he put it).

One person talking about it on X isn't "generating" anything @JoshWilding

I'll play devil's advocate here, if there is fan chatter, then they'll have themselves to blame when it amounts to nothing - like pretty much any "theory" since WandaVision hit.

Hell, if anything, the sequel trilogy proves they're pretty much winging it.
Oberlin4Prez - 9/23/2023, 3:46 PM
Or, and I know this is a stretch, he’s been on the same planet for several years and he doesn’t have a bunch of extra suits lying around.
WruceBayne - 9/23/2023, 5:22 PM
@Oberlin4Prez - that sounds absolutely ridiculous. What’s more plausible is that he’s king of the space zombies, SHEESH read a book. Lol
Drace24 - 9/23/2023, 4:03 PM
Or - here me out - maybe his uniform has some wear and tear on it because he was stranded in another galaxy for a decade and the next imperial tailor was 100.000 lightyears away! Seriously, what is happening with Star Wars fans? Even when they finally like something for a change they keep snoke-ing themselfs. How the [frick] does a slightly worn uniform lead one to believe Thrawn must be a zombie? Especially since we've already seen Nightsister zombies before.

This is what that looked like!

Are we just witnessing an entire fandoms collective decline in their critical thinking skills or what is going on?
JobinJ - 9/23/2023, 5:05 PM
@Drace24 - exactly. “OMG Thrawn blinked. That just mean he is force sensitive!!!”
SuperZeroCustmz - 9/24/2023, 12:22 AM
@Drace24 - cmon now....thats a rhetorical question. most of these fans that go w/ these stupid reach of articles are not 2 quick witted but they sure do love to make stupid theories involving how long thrawn has kept his uniform clean. Maybe think of his rank alone and that might explain why he keeps his uniform like that and also how much time has passed since the other series.
MuadDib - 9/23/2023, 8:18 PM
1) the troops were probably all killed by Ezra over the years and resurrected by the night sisters.

2) am I the only one who things Thrawn looks like Elon in blue face?

3) this whole thing is just to hype up whatever movie they have planned, I expect a big cliffhanger accompanied by a huge let down. It’s like an episode of Dragon Ballz with a character powering up the entire episode only to be continued next time! SMH
WruceBayne - 9/24/2023, 9:44 AM
@MuadDib - Goku charged that spirit bomb for a whole season. Lol
