Dave Filoni, co-creator of the Star Wars animated series “The Clone Wars” and “The Bad Batch”, has been promoted to executive creative director of Lucasfilm, Ltd.
Change at Lucasfilm! The company holding the rights to the Star Wars license has indeed promoted director / screenwriter Dave Filoni to the rank of executive creative director; a promotion recorded last summer by Kathleen Kennedy but which had not benefited from any media coverage.
Co-creator of the animated series The Clone Wars, Rebels and The Bad Batch, Dave Filoni is also involved in the conception of The Mandalorian, of which he wrote and directed several episodes; employed for many years by Lucasfilm, Ltd., he is considered by many fans as the rightful heir to George Lucas.
The 46-year-old Dave Filoni is currently working on the development of two highly anticipated spin-offs: The Book of Boba Fett, already shot for release at the end of the year, and Ahsoka, the series devoted to the former Jedi Ahsoka Tano. (Rosario Dawson), the padawan of Anakin Skywalker. Our colleagues from Variety also specify that Rangers of the New Republic, endangered since the dismissal of its main actress Gina Carano, is no longer in development.
Recall that the episodes of the animated series The Bad Batch are offered every Friday exclusively on the Disney + platform.
