After Disney purchased Lucasfilm, it was announced that the Star Wars expanded universe would no longer be considered official canon. Relabeled “Legends,” these stories would continue to exist in print and other mediums for future generations to enjoy. It was later clarified that places, characters, elements and stories from Legends could be adapted for future Star Wars canon if creators chose to incorporate them in this new wholly connected Star Wars universe.

The Star Wars Rebels season 2 finale included the now infamous line “there’s always some truth in Legends,” a tease of things to come. We’ve seen this already in the Star Wars novels, and now the animated television series Star Wars Rebels is brining back a big character from the expanded universe. Find out who and how Grand Admiral Thrawn will fit into Star Wars Rebels season 3 after the jump.

Star Wars Rebels Characters in Star Wars Movies

Plenty of characters who originated in the live-action Star Wars movies have gone on to appear in animated series like The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. However, we’ve yet to see an animated character making the jump to live-action. That changes this winter when The Clone Wars supporting character Saw Gerrera gets played by Forest Whitaker in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And it sounds like this is something that could happen more often in the future.

Star Wars Rebels writer and executive producer Simon Kinberg recently spoke with Moviefone about the connectivity of the various Star Wars media out there, borrowing characters from the movies for animated shows, and the possibility of seeing that process go the opposite way in future Star Wars movies. Find out what Simon Kinberg had to say about Star Wars Rebels characters in Star Wars movies after the jump. Read More »
