Dave Filoni
Executive Producer / Supervising Director, Star Wars Rebels

A diehard Star Wars fan, Dave Filoni realized a lifelong dream when he was selected by George Lucas to helm Lucasfilm Animation’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars as Supervising Director. Exploring the many wartime tales and stories that take place between Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, the series surpassed the rare industry milestone of 100 episodes and has won four Emmy® Awards — including winning the category of Outstanding Special Class Animated Program for two years in a row (2013/2014).

Presently, Dave is an Executive Producer of Star Wars Rebels, the critically acclaimed animated television series recently renewed for a third season on Disney XD.

Dave 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.

He 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, Dave 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.
