Filoni realized a lifelong dream in 2005 when he was selected by George Lucas to help build Lucasfilm’s animation studio from the ground up and create the company’s first series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Over a span of seven seasons, and more than 100 episodes, The Clone Wars (2008-2020) pushed the boundaries of television animation, receiving acclaim not only for its technical achievements, but its complex and compelling storylines. The series won four Emmy® Awards, including Outstanding Special Class Animated Program two years in a row, and introduced countless fan favorite characters to the Star Wars saga.

Filoni’s follow-up series, the Emmy® nominated Star Wars Rebels (2014-2018), similarly received universal praise for building upon the Star Wars saga and expanding on the lore and mythology first introduced in 1977. His third animated series, Star Wars Resistance, received Emmy® nominations two years in a row in the category of Outstanding Children’s Program (2019, 2020).
