You know, that page gave me a slight glimmer of hope. If Disney were to release the original 1970s-1980s versions of the original trilogy on DVD, as fans have been BEGGING for for years, it would go a LONG way to making me see this in a positive light.

I could see something like the Jacen arc where he falls to the dark side, maybe then Thrawn shows up as his second in command or something. Pick and choose the best parts.
But who knows, all of this is speculation. Nothing has been officially said except that they're making it and are looking at bringing in writers now.
The problem is that Thrawn would not show up simply because he's gone dark. The reason Thrawn got involved with ol' Palps to begin with was:
He knew first hand that the Yuuzhan Vong were coming to town and wanted to help the biggest galactic power of the time make sure that they would be ready when they showed up. This is also why he was willing to attack a cruiser full of Jedi at Palpatines command: because he agreed with Palpatines assessment that if the Vong were to get their hands on force-users early, that they would gain a huge advantage in the upcoming conflict.
Additionally, it's speculated that if the fledgling New Republic had gained more control of the Galaxy, he would have sided with them when he came back from the Unknown Regions because his first priority was still getting the Galaxy all militarized in time for the war.
Also yay retcons, and pretty much all written by Timothy Zahn himself.
Dammit now I need to read the Thrawn trilogy again, The Hand of Thrawn, and Outbound Flight.
