Dave Filoni Promoted to Executive Creative Director/Executive Producer for Lucasfilm. There is no denying that Dave Filoni is a passionate storyteller, particularly within the Star Wars franchise. This is made blatantly obvious in the Disney+ series Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, which we highly recommend Star Wars fans to watch!
Though he has been acting in both roles for a year or so, Lucasfilm recently updated Filoni’s profile on their website to include Executive Producer/ Executive Creative Director as his roles for the studio. This has prompted many fans to share in their excitement with Filoni online this week, despite the delayed posting on the official site.
Check out Filoni’s new job description and resume from Lucasfilm below:
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER / EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Dave Filoni realized a lifelong dream in 2005 when he was selected by George Lucas to help build Lucasfilm’s animation studio from the ground up and create the company’s first series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Over a span of seven seasons, and more than 100 episodes, The Clone Wars(2008-2020) pushed the boundaries of television animation, receiving acclaim not only for its technical achievements, but its complex and compelling storylines. The series won four Emmy® Awards, including Outstanding Special Class Animated Program two years in a row, and introduced countless fan favorite characters to the Star Wars saga.
Filoni’s follow-up series, the Emmy® nominated Star Wars Rebels (2014-2018), similarly received universal praise for building upon the Star Wars saga and expanding on the lore and mythology first introduced in 1977. His third animated series, Star Wars Resistance, received Emmy® nominations two years in a row in the category of Outstanding Children’s Program (2019, 2020).
Filoni is executive producer, episodic director and writer on the Emmy award-winning series The Mandalorian, and is currently in production on the new series The Book of Boba Fett. He is also the creator and executive producer of the new animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch on Disney+.
Congratulations to Dave Filoni! We can’t wait to see what stories are to come. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Lucasfilm!
