This campaign has been in operation for a while. The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 owner and members have now got it quasi organized. There are a few final goals and touchpoints we still have to meet with our stakeholders, the fans on the Thrawn In Star Wars Facebook page — given that Facebook does not decimate the owner’s use of the social media platform.
The main question we are asking of Disney as Star Wars fans is do they support and promote READING and CREATIVE WRITING?
In 2014-2015, in #GetThrawnIn, we asked of Disney as Star Wars fans is do they support ART?
Now we are working on READING and CREATIVE WRITING. We think these are things Disney is uniquely qualified to support and promote fully and reflect that in their movie entertainment.
Because to understand THRAWN or MITTH’RAW’NURUODO is to READ the literature. Literacy can be improved in the United States of America.
And the greatest expression of taking what one has read in “reading comprehension” is to creatively write their on fan-fictions.
Of course, this is not to say Disney is obligated to any of these stories, but it is the practice of writing at any age that educates and heals one’s mind as research has shown, repeatedly. Creatively writing, along with reading fiction and art, HEALS throughout all people’s lives — and is that not what Disney strives to tell their their heartfelt stories on the movie screen?
With the Baby Boomer population becoming Senior Citizens who are may have chronic conditions, to connecting with Millennials who have new technological ways to write, this campaign may be the most humanitarian one Disney could ever undertake. It connects generations, all who know who Disney is, as a movie studio and theme park destination. Then, the Post-Millennials will be young adults should this campaign project become a reality. It is SWAG77s understanding that many of the Post-Millennials are some of the most avid readers and prolific writers of their age-group.
Bring THRAWN in a movie is an appreciation by Star Wars and it’s fans of a character by design that supports those ideals:
The story character classification of THRAWN can be villain, but villains are seen as great people in some societies. Or for movie purposes, the screenplay can change the classification.
SWAG77 knows that THRAWN IN A MOVIE is a viable project for the Star Wars fan campaign.
We will use the hashtag: #ThrawnInAMovie
Memes with quotes from the Disney canon, first. Legends canon afterward for advanced training.
We have a dedicated creative writer’s group on ARCHIVE OF OUR OWN under SWAG77.

Kathleen Kennedy is saying that she wants a woman to direct a major Star Wars movie. She does not want to beg a woman. She wants that director to have a passion for Star Wars to direct the movie.
Christopher Lee died at his home at 93 years old. He played numerous roles over an extraordinary acting career. The most memorable one to Star Wars fans is in “Attack of the Clones” and part of “Revenge of the Sith” as the character, Count Dooku who was secretively the apprentice Sith Lord, Darth Tyrannus. His work will be long remembered. RIP.

To the neophyte actor, it would seem that with all of the horseshit everywhere in Hollywood, you’d expect – at some point anyway – to find a pony.
For those of you who are wondering, all of that horseshit is spread around to deter everyone but the…
