They were shocked because Thrawn was able to make clones in a matter of months versus taking years. It had to do with the use of the ysalamiri and the fact that they could block the force. I read this series to my 9 year old last year and he loved it. When they announced EP7-9 were being made, the first thing he asked was if they were making the Thrawn series...
Considering that Disney are saying they need to purge parts to help the creativity of the writers for the movies, I take that to mean that they could purge parts of the timeline and not necessarily all of the characters. I think it would be cool if they could still have Thrawn as a character. But, instead of Han, Luke and Leia being the 'action' heroes that fight against Thrawn, they could be the strategists like Bel Iblis and Mon Montha and their offspring or Jedi apprentices could be the ones actually fighting and doing all the action sequences.
