Disney+ Star Wars Series architect Dave Filoni has been named chief creative officer of Lucasfilm.
This new position means Filoni will have an even bigger voice in the future of the galaxy far, far away.

He continues to hold his executive vice president title to which he was elevated in 2020. Filoni “weighs in on the narrative level” while Kathleen Kennedy continues to lead Lucasfilm as president.
Filoni made the revelation in an interview with Vanity Fair on Tuesday.

He is preparing to direct his first live-action feature film Star Wars film which will bring together all the intrigues of the Disney+ science fiction series.
“In the past, in many projects, I was involved, I saw it After he had already developed good routes,” Filoni said VF. “In this new role, we are open to virtually anything that happens. When we are planning the future of what we are currently doing, I am involved from the start-up phase.

Feature film projects in development include James Mangold, Taika Waititi, Shawn Levy and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.
“To really help filmmakers, it was very important for me to experience it firsthand,” Filoni said. “I can also give my perspective on the challenges that telling these stories will present. I feel more able to be helpful outside of just saying, “Well, Jedi are like that, and Sith are like that…”
