    Timothy Zahn is getting ready to launch his third and final book in the Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy, as Thrawn Ascendancy: Lesser Evil is coming out next week, on November 16. So far, we've had two excerpts from the book, and today, Polygon debuted the third one, along with an interview with the author himself.



    About the overall trilogy, Zahn told Polygon the following:



    Of course, if we know one thing about Thrawn in Star Wars lore is the fact that he's been written by many authors besides Timothy Zahn himself, who created the character in the 90s. Those writers include, of course, Dave Filoni, who introduced the character in animated form in Star Wars: Rebels and dropped his name in Chapter 13: The Jedi, in The Mandalorian. About the many takes on Thrawn, the author said:

    One of the many things highlighted in the new trilogy is the vast array of characters surrounding Thrawn in his early days. About this, Zahn said:



    One of these characters is Captain Roscu, who appears in the new excerpt. Zahn had this to say about her:



    According to the interview, this will be Zahn's last Star Wars book in a while, despite the fact that the author still has more ideas in his head. The end of Lesser Evil would tie in directly into 2017's Thrawn. Of course, there is still an unexplored era, a nine-year gap in Thrawn's timeline, but to see that, we'll have to wait until the live-action shows come out. He said:

    Now, here's a chunk of the new excerpt, but make sure to head over to Polygon to read the rest:



    Thrawn Ascendancy: Lesser Evil comes out on November 16, but is already available to pre-order here. Look forward to our review too.

    kind of a shame as he's brought a lot to this GFFA in written form - who'd have thought that the now iconic Thrawn would come to be both canonically acknowledged and make the leap to portrayed on screen. hopefully we'll see Zahn back in the outer rim at some point and the big, blue Chiss on screen again (in live action form) even sooner.
