IN ADVANCE OF TOMORROW’S STAR WARS REBELS SEASON FINALE, STARWARS.COM LOOKS AT WHY THE IMPERIAL IS SUCH A GREAT, UNIQUE VILLAIN.
We love our Star Wars villains. The Empire, in particular, has some great ones.
There’s Tarkin, who is coolly able to destroy populations and entire planets as a show of military might to promote fear. Vader, a physically intimidating, enforcer and Sith. The Emperor, powerful and hidden, cloaked pure evil who runs the Empire.
Then there’s the Grand Admiral Thrawn. And on the eve of his big showdown with the rebels on tomorrow’s season finale of Star Wars Rebels, I think this is a good time to examine what makes him such a unique threat.
To be fair, Thrawn does share similarities with other Star Wars cutthroats. He has red eyes, chiseled cheeks, he schemes in shadows.
But hear me out on what puts Thrawn in a league of his own.
Thrawn has no need for adornments. He wears the uniform of his rank without the theatricality of a cloak or other accessories, unlike Krennic, Vader, or even the Emperor.

Take That star Gary Barlow has revealed he has a part in new Star Wars film The Last Jedi. The singer revealed the news on ITV’s Lorraine show on Monday.
“I’m not a stormtrooper but I am in it,” Barlow said. But he refused to give away any clues as to what part he would play.
The Last Jedi follows on from The Force Awakens, featuring Rey (Daisy Ridley) and runaway stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega). The film is out in December.
Barlow joked that, having revealed the news, he’ll “probably be out” of the film.
He added: “I think the Star Wars people are so strict about what information (is out there). So me saying that, I’ve probably just done myself out of a role.”
But any worried fans were quickly reassured by Lorraine’s Dan Wootton, who confirmed ITV did check with Star Wars bosses before airing the news.
Cast members returning for Episode VIII include Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels and Lupita Nyong’o.
It will also feature the late Carrie Fisher, as she had finished filming before her death in December last year.
Ian Kenny, who broke out with his scene-stealing performance in “Sing Street,” has joined the ensemble of Lucasfilm’s Han Solo stand alone pic starring Alden Ehrenreich, Variety has learned exclusively.
Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson, Michael K. Williams, and Emilia Clarke are already set to co-star in the Disney-Lucasfilm feature, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Jon and Lawrence Kasdan are penning the script.
The untitled Han Solo movie hits theaters May 25, 2018. Production is currently underway.
Details about Kenny’s character are unknown. Disney CEO Bob Iger said in an earnings call earlier this week that the movie would cover Solo’s life from when he was 18 to 24, revealing how he came to own the Millennium Falcon as well as how he met his Wookie sidekick, Chewbacca.
Produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Allison Shearmur, the Star Wars spin-off takes place before the original movie “A New Hope,” similar to the recent spin-off, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” Released in December 2016, “Rogue One” has grossed over a billion dollars worldwide.
