Dave Filoni Named Lucasfilm Chief Creative Officer

Dave Filoni, a seasoned figure in the Star Wars universe, is expanding his influence as the newly appointed Chief Creative Officer at Lucasfilm.

Reflecting on his previous involvement in projects, Filoni expressed, “In the past, in a lot of projects, I would be brought into it, I would see it after it had already developed a good way,” in an interview with Vanity Fair, which first reported the news.

In his enhanced role, Filoni will be actively engaged in the early development stages of Star Wars projects, collaborating closely with Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy and Head of Development Carrie Beck.

This strategic move comes at a pivotal moment for Star Wars. Despite its success on the small screen, driving subscriptions on Disney+, the franchise has faced challenges in bringing new films to theaters.

Since the divisive “Rise of Skywalker” in 2019, there have been no theatrical releases. In line with this, Filoni, as revealed in April during Star Wars Celebration, is working on directing a live-action feature. This project is expected to weave together the narrative between 1983’s “Return of the Jedi” and 2015’s “The Force Awakens,” potentially featuring characters from his Disney+ show.
