    1. I’m really excited to see what this sequel brings! I know a lot of people weren’t very happy with the first New Canon “Thrawn” novel that came out earlier this year, but I thought it was ok (more language than I personally liked, but the story itself wasn’t bad).
      I don’t know that much about his place in Old Canon, except that his main story took place after ROTJ, so I’m assuming he didn’t have much known interaction with Vader in the old EU. So it’ll be interesting to see how those two get along.
