    He's very knowledgeable about what the fanbase is like, and he accepts that Star Wars fans are still Star Wars fans regardless of what parts they enjoy or don't enjoy.

    And judging from the interviews, he seems like a nice guy to work with.

    Great thread! I too am in the "please, Filoni, continue with Star Wars for years to come" camp.
    I think he has done amazing things throughout both TCW and Rebels, and I would love to see him work on at least one more show after Rebels.
    And come on Lucasfilm, let the man direct a proper animated Star Wars feature film! [face_praying]

    For me Filoni is the most recognizable person who works on Star wars other then GL.

    Thread is a little creepy, appreciation threads can be borderline stalking sometimes. I will say this Filoniverse is a great series of Star Wars animation. Being a fan of the Complete Saga, i stayed away from the TV shows, i view them as EU, but the interest many adults had in Rebels made me curious. It seemed fans were way more excited for Rebels than TCW, after my research on the topic then fan interest seemed based in era bias. Lucas never really seemed to push TCW like he did the PT. Dave seemed to be much more involved. TCW is the superior series of the two, but Rebels could get better if they feature the right characters.

    No offense but sometimes CoolyFett you don't make any sense.

    Indeed. I'd love to see the research data and studies he conducted to claim that SWR fans are mean Lucas and PT haters as he claims.

    About 15 years ago on a Yahoo mailing list, I reported a woman who claimed she knew Hayden Christensen's dentist and planned to have an emergency toothache next time he had an appointment.

    It takes a lot to set off my celebrity-stalking radar after that. And this thread isn't even in the same universe.

    Welp....That takes things to a whole new level.

    On a side note: I don't see how this Filoni discussion is creepy-ish. For the amount of hate the guy gets here, it's refreshing to see acknowledgement of at least the passion he puts into his work.

    Also, Jedi Knight Fett, I agree with you about Filoni being one of the more recognizable people in the Star Wars behind the scenes. At least for me, Filoni's work was the only Star Wars I watched as it came out, and it was like opening a whole new world for me. Of course I had loved the movies before hand, but the fact that TCW was the first Star Wars work that I anticipated and waited for and everything made it have a special place in my fandom-heart and has made the show very nostalgic for me.

    Filoni is a nice guy and I really respect him for the work he does. I don't agree with everything he says in interviews, but he is very passionate and very important for modern Star Wars.

    Finally recognition for someone who brought one of the greatest Star Wars characters to life! Hopefully, they'll give Dave a shot a directing one of the life action spinoffs.

    I could see that as long as it does not involve Ashoka it could be good.

    I would burst into thousands of pieces from the amount of sheer happiness if Ahsoka got a live action spinoff!

    You've never been to Hollywood and Highland, she would fit right in...

    Oh, you don't mean Los Angeles...

    As far as Filoni, I respect the guy for what he has done. However, as a "fan" of Star Wars, I fundamentally disagree with many of his take-aways from previous/existing material, and how those take-aways have molded the direction in which he takes his creations.

    Agreed, I wasn't exactly the biggest fan of how Shaak Ti looked in the PT, but I was more of a fan of her in TCW. I think the biggest difference was the eyes.
