I know people normally like to make fun of the Star Wars Sequels, and I personally often fall down the rabbit hole myself. But, I just want you guys to leave in the comments something that you really like about the.
For me I personally think that The Force Awakens is not that bad, and I actually really like most of the main characters of the sequels. Also, I actually really like Dark Empire, so I had no problem with Palpatine coming back (except that it needed to be set up in the other films).
P.S, if you really hate the sequels that’s fine too, just please don’t comment on this tread attempting to hate on them even more.

They would have to be one dark side, one light, and from the eras of the galactic republic, empire, or first order.
I would probably choose ventress and Ahsoka (even though there are so many CIS and galactic republic heroes already)

Mine is ahsoka because her snippy personality
Now I’d like to start this by saying that I personally very much liked Rebels and still do. However, I have noticed obvious mistakes in Thrawn after reading the Canon Thrawn Trilogy.
Thrawn first appeared in Timothy Zahn’s now Legends novels Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command. In these books we saw a character who pushed the boundaries of previously seen Imperial leadership promoting creativity, culture, and higher thinking in his crew caring for them. Thrawn would also show his difference in his lack of a need or even desire for glory instead serving for the will of the Empire truly believing in order and the might and stability the Empire provided. Thrawn was also able to admit defeat - rather than fighting a losing battle wasting lives and resources Thrawn would retreat and rethink his strategy.
Thrawn’s intelligence was unparalleled, his use of an opponent’s art and thus their beliefs and abilities would play critical to his success against him. Along with this was his ability to completely and meticulously plan out campaigns to a fine point predicting and preparing for his opponents attacks, counterattacks, and defenses (though ultimately proving his downfall when he overanalyzed and assumed his opponent had information they did not) to the point of defeating much larger forces. Thrawn’s loyalty to the Empire stemmed from his belief of a unified and strong central government was key to defeating opponents to it from within and without.
We see this almost completely again in the Canon Thrawn Trilogy which established him as caring for his subordinates, using art to outsmart his opponent, and believing in the unified might of the Empire.
Star Wars Rebels’ first 2 seasons are considered more childish and kid-oriented. However series creator, Dave Filoni, had clearly shown his ability to create mature content with The Clone Wars as its storylines (especially in later seasons) showed heavier themes and even dark moments with characters that truly had multiple layers of depth to them. Indeed SWR was able to become more mature and have heavier themes and characters with depth in its 3rd and 4th seasons.
What Went Wrong
In seasons 3-4 of Rebels we see the introduction of the character of Thrawn take center stage as the antagonist. This version of Thrawn was cold, ruthless, and (while denying it in one instance) strives for glory. To be fair however this Thrawn did indeed have intelligence to plan thought out battles and strategies and would also use art to understand and even beat back the rebels on occasion. Most notably frustration came over Thrawn’s defeat at the hands of non-sentient, hyperspace capable, creatures that resembled whales that were named purrgil who the protagonist, Ezra Bridger, called to Thrawn’s forces using the Force fo take them away.
On SWR’s side we can see how the story of the protagonist ultimately needed this. Ezra Bridger, the show’s protagonist, learns the final lesson of being a Jedi and sacrificing himself (however confirmed to still be alive) to realize and learn this. This does not excuse Thrawn’s mishandling I would just like to be somewhat fair on both sides.
What this Means
First off: out of universe. Out of universe this means that audiences got an inaccurate representation of Thrawn in SWR and Thrawn not being able to appear at all in the time after 0 BBY.
In universe this has some pretty big impacts. First off, Gilad Pelleaon is now unable to be of any use to the Empire due to him being among the ships that were with Thrawn. The same goes for Karyn Faro who in Thrawn: Treason was explored and expanded upon as commodore of the Chimaera and soon-to-be Grand Admiral of the 11th Fleet who was presumably in the Chimaera when it was teleported to some unknown destination. Both of these personally upset me for a number of reasons most notably the fact that they’re stories will never get to see fulfillment due to them being cut off abruptly. Also, we have the fact that Thrawn’s TIE Defender Project would have been highly beneficial for the Empire in the Galactic Civil War battling the Rebellion alongside his advice on other military projects like the Death Star (he was the one who made the suggestion for Darth Vader to watch over it).
Ultimately this issue is one of misunderstanding and misrepresentation, both on the part of Dave Filoni who clearly did not understand Thrawn fully. I just finished reading Thrawn: Treason last night and I was immediately taken back to Thrawn’s appearance in Rebels and was appalled by their mishandling. As a writer/storyteller you want your stories and characters to be understood and clearly that did not happen here much to mine and many others’ disappointment. Now is this saying that Star Wars Rebels is a bad show? Of course not. Is this saying Thrawn is a bad character? Of course not. All I wanted to get across was the mishandling of Thrawn and the impacts of this. Anyway, thank you for reading and MTFBWY
