The Maestro Trilogy was a planned novel trilogy to be written by Timothy Zahn. In a Facebook Q/A, Zahn revealed that he was working with Lucasfilm Ltd. and The Walt Disney Company in a Star Wars novel trilogy. One of the books was to focus on Thrawn and the Chiss, the second was to focus on Mara Jade Skywalker preventing an assasssination attempt on Anakin Skywalker, and the third would have been also the third book in the Hand of Judgment series.
However, the project's fate was left unclear after the announcement that the Expanded Universe would be rebranded as Star Wars Legends due the development of the canonical Star Wars sequel trilogy. In July 2016, it was announced that Zahn will write a canon novel entitled Thrawn, featuring a canonical version of the character.
