Now, we have heard about live action Ezra and Thrawn. LRM is trustworthy and is on track with what’s happening but we know that the animated Rebels Sequel is still coming.

So that is another scooper who has corroborated us today. But that’s not all, Jordan Maison from Cinelinx also revealed that he’s heard of the Ezra and Thrawn live-action series.
Regarding this latest report…I'm not sure! I heard about a Rebels follow-up animation last year & still around as far as I know.

Admiral Thrawn further rumored to appear in live-action.
Disney has been hard at work with the Star Wars brand for some time. However, with The Mandalorian, they opened up a can of worms for the franchise. What was mostly a film-centric series has suddenly turned to a TV-centric franchise. No joke. There have been countless rumors under the sun about many different spinoffs we’ll be getting set in a galaxy far, far away. In fact, we too contributed our share of scoops to the subject.
Among our numerous scoops was the reveal that Disney+ is basing their suite of live-action shows on Game of Thrones. What that means is that there will be one big overarching story told from different perspectives, and those perspectives will be told through separate shows. Among the different shows we laid out was one that focused on Ezra and the fan-favorite Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Now, we have a fresh scoop from the trusty Daniel Richtman, which mostly corroborates our own. According to Richtman, Thrawn is coming in live-action. Sadly, he didn’t even have any further details to share with his audience, but this does fall in line with what we’ve already shared. Based on what we know, an Ezra and Thrawn live-action series is in the cards, even if it wouldn’t come until well after the Ahsoka Tano series.
Of course, this isn’t a full “scoop confirmation.” For starters, we’re only getting partial corroboration. Second, until things are officially acknowledged by Lucasfilm and Disney, it’s not technically a full confirmation. Then again, as soon as a main trade like THR confirms the news, that’d be almost as good as a full confirmation.
But, for now, we will take this minor reveal from Richtman as a happy mild corroboration. We can only wait until we get more information, along with the other scoopers out there. Are you excited that Admiral Thrawn appearing in live-action is seeming more likely? Sound off down below!
