Dave Filoni is Force for Star Wars

Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) has been promoted to Chief Creative Officer at Lucasfilm.

"Now I'm what's called chief creative officer at Lucasfilm," Filoni said in an interview with Vanity Fair. Reporting directly to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, Filoni will oversee Star Wars movies and spin-off series for Disney.

This is an inspired move as Filoni was mentored by Star Wars creator George Lucas.

"In the past, in a lot of projects, I would be brought into it, I would see it after it had developed a good ways," Filoni explained. "When we're planning the future of what we're doing now, I'm involved at the inception phase."

Filoni's spin-off series Ahsoka was a hit with most Star Wars fans (myself included), and a movie is in production that will tie together all the spin-off series since The Mandalorian on Disney+. Aside from a special midseason screening of Ahsoka, Star Wars has been absent from theatres since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in 2019.

Are you excited Dave Filoni is overseeing all things Star Wars? Let me know in the comments below.
