A diehard Star Wars fan, Dave Filoni realized a lifelong dream with the opportunity to work as Supervising Director on Lucasfilm Animation’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Exploring the many war-time tales and untold stories that take place between Episodes II and III, Filoni works closely with George Lucas to create all-new adventures within the iconic Star Wars universe.
He joined Lucasfilm Animation fresh from another touchstone fantasy franchise – Nickelodeon’s animated Avatar: The Last Airbender, for which he served as director, helping to further articulate the complex and dynamic world of the wildly popular series.
Filoni began his animation career working as an assistant director for Film Roman’s Emmy-winning King of the Hill, created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels. While with Film Roman, Filoni also served as assistant director for Mission Hill and The Oblongs, both of which ran on the WB. From there, he moved to Walt Disney Television Animation, where he contributed in various capacities to series such as Teamo Supremo, Kim Possible, Dave the Barbarian and Lilo & Stitch.
