REASONS: There are many reasons, here are our few:
1) It is THRAWN! He’s a badass! He’s villain, which is debatable, but that’s the kind of character fans like now.
2) We all know that the Emperor, Darth Vader and Tarkin are going to have trouble with the excellent piloting skills of Hera Syndulla, the Force use of Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger, the Mandalorian prowess of Sabine Wren, and the army tactics of Zeb Orrelios. They are all creatives rebelling against an “oppressive Empire”.
Perhaps it’s time for an “ART CRITIC” to consult for the Empire. It would be a damage assessment to eliminate these creative Rebel threats.
3) THRAWN = ART CRITIC
4) He is a boon to the Rebel fleet. He will outmaneuver them with his military prowess, genius, strategy, and tactics.
5) THRAWN is great character to have in recurring story arcs of Star Wars Rebels. He is pragmatic and he keeps the Force Users, especially the Emperor and Darth Vader at bay.
He is like the “Vulcans of Star Trek” in Star Wars because his species, the CHISS, are logical. But there is a bit of megalomanic streak in him that drives his desire to be in the military verses a philosopher. THRAWN prefers a fight.
He is also staving off a full blown battle until there is more intel on a hidden enemy that is only under the knowledge of the Emperor, Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin.
The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG77), loves the Star Wars Legends or (Star Wars Expanded Universe – SWEU). We also enjoy positive Star Wars fandom to encourage new stories and creativity. Our action is to use social media constructively to show Disney Lucasfilm the efficacy of putting the fictional character into the official Lucasfilm Star Wars new canon specifically the Star Wars Rebels timeline, continuity and story arc.
We have to PITCH the idea to Disney Lucasfilm despite the current contracts.
We feel that a strong social media metrics can persuade Disney Lucasfilm to reconsider this character THRAWN and the CHISS species. Our abundant collection of data: roleplay story arcs, character sheets, financial budgets, social media campaign, voice actor work and videos MERIT a pitch. Our social transmedia campaign is our pitch bible.
It will take a year to bring this project into fruition, but this campaign is positive Star Wars fandom and we promote all Star Wars content.
Thank you for your consideration.
We wrote this last year, 2015. Amazing how much was incorporated.
