Dave Filoni Is Working On A New Animated Series

By: Benjamin Hart

Star Wars fans have been on an emotional roller coaster these past few months. The cancellation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been just one of many things that have troubled fans recently, but perhaps we're finally getting some good news. In an interview with our friends at RebelForce Radio Dave Filoni has confirmed his involvement with a future Star Wars animated project. IGN reports the Fedora wearing director was asked about his future with Star Wars animation, and he responded:

“At this point, I am involved in some early production discussions and exploration of what we’ll be doing with Star Wars animation in the future, which is really exciting for me and I have some friendly faces around me, of course, that are helping me on the project. So it’s a transition time, as I’ve said before, and I think it will lead to an exciting time and hopefully I’ll see things grow again.”

Filoni also discussed the recent news of layoffs at Lucasfilm:

It’s a function of our industry… It’s not my favorite part. You can luckily grow things and bring on many talented people, but there become times when you have to shrink things as well. We happen to be in one of those times right now, but that just paves the way, hopefully, for new things and new creativity in the future.”

While this isn't a solid confirmation a new series is on the way, it is very exciting to hear Dave Filoni is continuing to work behind the scenes at Lucasfilm to bring us more amazing Star Wars content. No matter what's coming down the pipe, if Dave has a hand in it it's gotta be good. While many of us still push for The Clone Wars to be completed, a new series on the horizon would certainly help us rest easy.

Be sure to check out IGN's entire report and listen to RFR's complete interview tomorrow when's it's released.
