Dave Filoni Teases Star Wars Rebels Characters Returning in Live-Action Ahsoka Series


Dave Filoni Teases Star Wars Rebels Characters Returning in Live-Action Ahsoka Series

Dave Filoni has served as a producer, director, and writer for several Star Wars projects, including The Mandalorian, Rebels, and Clone Wars. Filoni is the showrunner for the upcoming Live-Action Ahsoka series releasing this summer on Disney+. Filoni teased that many of the characters he created for the animated shows will transition to live-action. Filoni sat down with The Wrap to discuss integrating all these characters into a crossover project.

Filoni has brought characters like Bo Katan and Ahsoka into The Mandalorian and plans to introduce more characters. When asked how often he thinks about bringing his animated character into Live-Action, Filoni responded, “Very rarely. I know people think it’s the other way around, which is fascinating to me, but I think there’s two ways to look at that, which is that, yes, they were animated characters, but to me, they’re just characters. And now I’m over here working in live-action. I’m comfortable with those characters; I know them, I like them, and I like to see them around.”

Filoni added, “When we needed a gunslinger to go up against some of our characters in Book of Boba Fett, Cad Bane’s name came up. I think looking at that, the first thing I think is, Well, how do we do that and make it believable? Like the character, he’s so lean and gaunt in The Clone Wars. And if we don’t do that, is it all CG? How are we going to portray that? If we don’t think we can do that effectively, then we shouldn’t do it.”

Filoni teased more characters crossing over in the near future, saying, “At the end of the day, I’ve been very happy with the ones that have gone over. There may or may not be more in Ahsoka if that’s your thing. If you’re excited about that, I’m just saying that one might have a few more, which makes sense, by the way. As you know, I wrote it. You can’t fault me there.”

We know that Disney has already cast characters like Sabine Wren and Ezra Bridger for upcoming projects, but we will have to wait and see what other characters make the crossover in future Star Wars projects.
