Lucasfilm Promotes Dave Filoni To Executive Creative Director

The Lucasfilm Ltd. website was updated with some new text under Dave Filoni's bio today:


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+.
A big congratulations from all of us here at, Dave. This is much deserved and we look forward to the amazing things you'll continue doing with Star Wars for years and years to come.
