    Is there anyone else that would love to see what Filoni would be capable of doing outside of Star Wars? Be it something totally original or – knowing his interests – a story based on/inspired by Tolkien's legendarium?

    Basically this -- not that he's infallible (although when he's good he's great), but it's hard to imagine anyone equally committed to both the details of the world and the big picture of storytelling. What would be interesting to know is if he has his *own* padawan, so to speak, an heir apparent as basically the third steward of the SW world when he's done.

    Sure, but it’s not gonna happen. He works for Lucasfilm. He won’t be able to make something original until that stops being the case unless he makes something wholesale new for Lucasfilm, but why would he and why would they want that?

    I'm i the only one who kinda is sicken by the idea of their always being a steward of Star Wars. Like why does it always have to be one person, I say let Star Wars diversify into multiple voices and not just rely on one person.

    It's honestly kinda creepy our mentality of wanting one person if you ask me.

    Especially because so far the steward of Star Wars has always been a white dude

    I think other people want Dave Filoni to run all of Star Wars, but I don’t think that’s what Dave Filoni wants. Seems like he’s just content to tell his own little saga that he started with Lucas in TCW and carried across animation into the Mando stuff.

    See i'm fine with that, Filoni can have his own little piece of the Star Wars pie be it both the Mandoverse and the Animated Stuff (Which really at this point is one and the same) but the whole shebang ...That's gonna get stale real quick.

    It's honestly why I'm looking forward to Obi-Wan and Cassian, in terms of Disney + stuff more, the non Filoni inspired stuff.

    I like Filoni’s stuff reasonably well, so it’s not going to be a struggle for me to get through Boba/Mando3/Ahsoka or anything like that. Ditto Gilroy coming from Rogue One to Andor, Chow from Mando1 to Obi-Wan. With the rest I don’t have an exact frame of reference so I’m just going in neutral until I see footage and get a sense of what the project will feel like.

    Well Kenobi seems even if not Filoni involved will have his characters he created on the show, and chow worked with Filoni, then you have the acolyte, Where Leslie Headland talked about them being Filoni aclolytes. I also think We will see more of Filoni's creations in Andor.

    Having one person control and make all the stories makes things so boring. Glad Filoni has his shows, but also glad there will be some non Filoni stuff

    I think wether Filoni is involved some of his characters and creations will be in some of these non Filoni projects too.

    Better one person with vision in charge than SW run by a corporate board.

    Yea that’s not gonna happen. The president of Lucasfilms soul job is to make sure the projects make money. At least from the perspective of Disney. Do you really want to give that job to Dave

    This here seems to fit what Dave Filoni does, connects it all.

    (Being very careful with my words, and not wanting to start a ST discussion here.....)
    As much as a like the current ST, I think his ST would connect better.

    I say this purely in the context of this thread and as appreciation for his skills in this precise point: he has proven several times that he knows how to make Star Wars stories that connects consistently with the previous lore, and when he expands the lore, he does it in a way that feels natural.

    Seeing how Filoni created an animated series that is one of the greatest connect the dots games ever it only makes sense. Who better to connect those dots?

    With Filoni leading the the tv series in a way in new republic era that leads to ST era, you think he would make Ahsoka and Ezra live past Luke and the ST. His creations have lived past the OT and some like Hondo lives past ST. I think he connect the dots with mostly his characters and when needed OT or ST characters when the story calls for it.

    I think he did a pretty good job writing/directing this most recent episode.

    "Pretty good" are not the words I would choose. "Excellent" is more like it. :D
