A BELOVED CHARACTER RETURNS IN A NEW TRILOGY: Upon its release in 1991, Star Wars: Heir to the Empire was the first book in what is now called the Star Wars Legends line of novels. This trilogy introduced the character of Thrawn and jump-started three decades of Star Wars publishing. Thrawn: Ascendancy kicks off an all-new trilogy to star Star Wars books’ most iconic villain.
THRAWN’S ORIGIN AND HOMEWORLD: One of the most popular Star Wars characters ever, Thrawn’s homeworld and origins have never been fully realized before. This all new trilogy will delve into the stories, characters, and events that shaped Thrawn into a legendary figure.
THIRTY YEARS OF THRAWN: 2021 marks the 30th Anniversary of Heir to the Empire, the novel that debuted Thrawn and helped launch Star Wars novels
MODERN AND CLASSIC: Today’s fans still regard the Thrawn Trilogy (Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command) as three of the greatest Star Wars novels ever written. Even 30 years later, new and returning readers alike made Star Wars: Thrawn a New York Times bestseller. Between the Legends trilogy, the canon Imperial trilogy, the canon television series, and graphic novel releases spanning decades, Thrawn commands a wider audience than any other Star Wars book character.
