From 2015 our Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why should I get involved?
A. To show Disney Lucasfilm that fans want this character, GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN recanonized.
This campaign operates professionally by highly skilled community activists.
Experience shows through collaboration our desired goal is obtainable – THRAWN IN REBELS.
This campaign will include a family-friendly atmosphere that educates children about art.
Life-skills will be learned for for free just because one is a fan of Star Wars. Skills learned in formal settings from an Ph.D. university instructor.
This post is from current content that we posted in 2015. It is our plea to request support for the #GetThrawnIn #StarWarsRebels.
Today, our efforts are to promote reading the Star Wars novels, fine art and classical music. Every one of Grand Admiral Thrawn’s Star Wars Rebels episodes have followed closely to Star Wars Legends canon with creativity and some redirection. Which is important, now that Star Wars Rebels has been nominated for several Annie Awards.
To be nominated for the 2017 year Annie Awards, Star Wars Rebels as a show, overall had to be considered. The art and music of Star Wars Rebels is exceptional. The executive leads on production are award winning and exceptional. If the Annie Awards are going by story, the story overall is fun for children. But we Star Wars Legends Fans, like to think that it was because Lucasfilm production added Grand Admiral Thrawn from the Star Wars Legends books and translated it to screen. It was that decision that is pushing Star Wars Rebels as a TV show to an award nominating level. While there is the exceptional music, there are the beautiful visuals, there are the correct animation in lighting, and a whole bunch more, in production, taking a concept from the books to the screen is what film school trains professional people to do for nomination for awards. As Star Wars fans, award nominations are notable.
It took Disney and Lucasfilm executives to agree to this Grand Admiral Thrawn concept, plan it, review it, and then produce it. They may have not wanted to add Thrawn in because certain Star Wars fans do not know or care who he is. FACT.
The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG 77) is the group the bridged that gap and helped these individuals understand that it is MORE than fan servicing, Thrawn as character and story is a “cult classic” and some of us have been waiting for more than 25 years to see his presence on screen. We were willing to do whatever it takes, legally, to Get Thrawn In Star Wars Rebels.
We underwrote financially this campaign and put it into action starting on August, 2014. FACT.
It costs $8000 to set up this kind of campaign professionally to completion for a decision, favorable or not. FACT.
SWAG77′s campaign was driven by Star Wars positive fandom where we had goals and touchpoints for stakeholders to support and uplift on social media. Our social media metrics from the positive fandom content were 60% at peak times. If our budgets permitted it, those reach rates would be higher.
As such, that is why we need your support for other projects in consideration. If you want to see more of what we can do, consider supporting us: http://paypal.me/SWAG77/100 to become a Star Wars Fan supporter.
