I play this Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes game A LOT. Like every day a lot. I knew of Thrawn and the books Timothy Zahn wrote back in the day, I just never read them. Then Rebels brought Thrawn back into the fold (and The Mandalorian brought him up this season). So because of the game and the shows I got way more into the character. Just the other day someone in my game guild posted the link to this, so I figured I’d share it here. It’s just kinda cool to see an animated take on the books and character. 

Well what did you think about the series? It’s not the greatest animation (or voice work), but it is a pretty cool way to catch up on some old stories. Even if it looks like old game cut scenes.
