Released in 1991, Star Wars: Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn was the first of three books introducing the galaxy to Grand Admiral Mitth'raw'nuruodo, the Chiss also known as Thrawn. Zahn's trilogy was credited with revitalizing the franchise and creating a Star Wars renaissance at the time. Bottom line is, most every Star Wars fan owns these books as they are considered required reading.
While the books are now considered part of the Legends continuity, as in not officially canon, Thrawn remains popular as ever thanks to the more recent canon novels and the Star Wars Rebels animated series.
Back in May, Damien Valentine (Chronicles of Humanity) adapted the first chapter from that historic novel into a fun animated short, now he's back with Chapter 2!
Check out both chapters below!
The Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Death Star, defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and driven the remnants of the old Imperial Starfleet to a distant corner of the galaxy.
Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting Jedi twins. And Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of Jedi Knights.
But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor's warlords has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....
