He started as a new villain in a 1991 Star Wars book and has since grown to have a huge fanbase, eventually making it to the screen in the animated show Star Wars Rebels.

What’s on the Thrawn Canon Timeline?

This timeline includes all of the media and stories involving Thrawn, a popular villain outside the Star Wars films. He first started in the Thrawn trilogy of novels by Timothy Zahn, which began in 1991. However, most of those stories were disregarded as non-canon in the Disney era. That said, Thrawn was brought back into the canon on Star Wars Rebels, and in new books by Timothy Zahn.

This is just his canon appearances, but we hope you enjoy learning more about this character and wait eagerly with the rest of us to know more about what happens to him. Because so far his story remains open-ended.

We hope you enjoy this Thrawn canon timeline. And don’t forget to visit all of our other Star Wars timelines on our Star Wars hub page. As always, if you see anything that needs changing, let us know.
