However, not all fans are thrilled about Filoni’s ascendancy. Social media platforms have been abuzz with mixed reactions to the news, highlighting the diverse opinions within the Star Wars community. While some fans view Filoni as the savior of the franchise, others question his ability to live up to the legacy of George Lucas. Despite the divided responses, Filoni remains committed to his ongoing projects. Whether it’s a potential second season of Ashoka or the movie that will unite all current Star Wars shows, Filoni is determined to lend his expertise.

He explained, “To truly help filmmakers, it was really important for me to experience it first-hand. I can also lend a perspective on the challenges that telling these stories will present.
