That would actually be kind of neat. Wouldn’t mind Thrawn returning in that capacity.

I can’t buy he was a part of founding the First Order - they’re too incompetent.

In my hopes/head-canon, Thrawn and Bridger end up in the Unknown Regions on a crippled ship thanks to the Purrgil-jump. There they have to come to an uneasy alliance to survive since Thrawn sees no value in continuing their conflict at this point, and Bridger is a potentially powerful resource. He's practical, not spiteful. This eventually leads to a respect and bromance where they form up forces to push back the approaching Vong, or some similar threat. 

That's where they have been for the last 30 years. Maybe Ahsoka and Sabine eventually go out there and find them. Having them roll up now could be cool.

So ... basically exactly the same as Zeb/Kallus?

So my thinking is that the Jedi tradition is over, Luke had essentially rejected it, what if a new tradition based on his teaching becomes the new force tradition? Users being called Skywalkers though not by blood but by virtue of how they use the force.

If I remember correctly in one of the books which is likely out of the canon now and Attack of the Clones, wasn't Darth Plagueis mentioned as someone able to control the force and life itself. Clearly some prescedent for palpatine to return...

I could also see it starting as a deal. There has been talk in the books about how the Chiss are having internal conflicts. Thrawn offering to walk away from the Empire in exchange for Ezra’s help might fit in to the idea.

Regarding the FO being incompetent ... maybe on-screen, but remember, off-screen they managed to build their presence into something capable of taking on the New Republic, and they managed to build something more powerful than the Death Star.  Overall, I don't think "incompetent" is a fair description.  If anything, they're a Mary Sue of an Evil Organization.

J J Abrams said this was part of the opening. 

Looks more like Yavin 4 than Endor...although I suppose with the force of the explosion it could have landed on a different moon.  Or perhaps it is Endor and all the trees were blasted away in the impact.

New theory: Death Star wreckage we see is the forest moon of Endor and Ewok apocalypse is now canon.

unless Endor is more Earth-like, or Ewok Adventure like... DeathStar pieces could've landed all over the place, not just 'Redwood' region.

That's sort of what I was thinking with the final scene of the trailer.  That could be a rather devastated Endor...

Because they just didn't kill the happy ending of ROTJ enough in Force Awakens. They needed one more twist of the lightsaber.

As cool as this is, I'm not sure they'd go through with it. 

Based on what little lore we know about the existing canon, it's much more likely the new rebellion salvaged a few old ISDs from the scrapyards to fight the FO with.  I mean scrapping out 25,000 +/- ISDs would take decades, right?

I could see either argument. But yes, it’d take quite a while to decom stuff. 

However, the new canon also mentioned the empire signing a truce with the new republic, so there is a remnant that is not the FO.

Only because the republic was stupid enough to put all their military and civilian assets in one single solar system. Their superweapon worked fine.... once.

The FO tech is fine. They just have not a single military brain cell among them.

I think you're thinking of the Resistance.  I meant the entire new galactic government.

The movie says last day of the republic, so I think what they were saying is that yes, the republic had all their officials right there to be blown away.

I am not talking about the Resistance and their base that’s lost in TLJ.
