You could say that Dave Filoni, the executive producer of Star Wars Rebels, is the heir apparent to George Lucas in the Star Wars universe. Whether he’d accept that title is another question (maybe, maybe not), but what certainly is clear is that the direction of the Clone Wars and Rebels TV series are deeply influenced by the conversations and mentoring relationship between Filoni and Lucas.
I wanted to give you a peek at the man behind the curtain of Star Wars Rebels, and give it to you in our quick-to-digest format. That being said, I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed watching Andi Gutierrez’s extended The Star Wars Show interview with Dave Filoni. I’ve watched it twice and part of a third time already, and it will tell you just about everything you wanted to know about the guy responsible for a huge chunk of Star Wars storytelling.
Meanwhile, what do YOU think of Dave Filoni, and how he’s become a steward of the franchise? Share your thoughts in the comments!
