To be honest, I found the Thrawn trilogy to be very overrated. Nearly swore me off Star Wars novels completely. As it is, I think I've read ten, that's counting each Thrawn book seperately.
Maybe Cumberbatch is really playing Thrawn in this movie, and the new Star Wars movie will be a crossover?
Actually, the idea of Cumberbatch playing Thrawn is kind of cool sounding.
I think the Thrawn books are better written and plotted than any of the movies
I think they are both.
I do think they're not quite worthy of the praise usually attributed to them, but they do hone a certain level of sophistication not seen in the films. But that's usually par for the course with lit over film.
I do think Thrawn is a very interesting character and, ironically, how I've always envisioned what Khan should have been. However, I do think Zahn went a little too far with him. Like there were times I think he was a little too
prophetic and a little too
cunning to be fully believable.
Also, I could never get passed Zahn's obsession with the word "grimace."
