We made it almost 3 pages before someone made this lame joke.
As for the Thrawn trilogy, I wouldn't say it's the best of the EU (I'd say Shadows of the Empire or some of the Old Republic stuff, or even PT stuff like I, Jedi or the like) would get that. It simply was the most cohesive. What Zhan was good at was creating interesting characters, without a doubt, ones that could stick and grow with the EU setting. But his actual plot and stories were basically characters moving from one dangerous thing to another, with very little in between.
More likely you'd see the rise of Thrawn or elements of the old empire, turning that into some of the other stories (hopefully not that Vong garbage or anything with Jacen) to build a new narrative around it.
If Disney is really intending to turn this into a long-running franschise, they need to establish new characters that can continue on, and greatly expand the series. It was a Galaxy far, far away, but we only ever scratched the surface with it.
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.
