The announcement that Thrawn, played by Lars Mikkelsen, is in the new "Star Wars" live-action series "Ahsoka" is causing a stir in the fan scene, in the latest episode of "The Mandalorian" he was already announced. But who is this Thrawn?
Thrawn's full name is actually Mitth'raw'nuruodo, but after his birth on the planet Rentor (originally Csilla), he was initially baptized with the name Kivu'raw'nuru. He is a member of the blue-skinned and red-eyed humanoid species of the Chiss (which had not played a role in the films).
At a young age, Thrawn became a favorite of Emperor Palpatine, with Darth Vader (whom Thrawn, we learned, had already met in his life as Anakin Skywalker) saw him as a competitor. However, since the Emperor assigned the two very different spheres of activity and tasks, they were able to act independently of each other and each serve the Empire in their own way.
