Dave Filoni Has Smaller Role in Making Star Wars Resistance

There's a lot of anticipation for Star Wars Resistance, the next animated series based on the popular franchise. Fans were also happy to see Dave Filoni involved in the series since he was part of the team who made Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, both of which are very popular with fans.

However, he recently told IGN that he isn't as involved with the series as he was with Clone Wars and Rebels. The producer is still involved in the show in some capacity, offering notes and his thoughts on certain elements but he's not always working on Resistance.

"So right now, Resistance is a bit different, in that I'm not on that day-to-day. I created and set it in motion, but I've given that to other people to raise up, people that I've worked with a long time, who I think deserve the opportunity to tell stories and I think it's exciting, and I give them my thoughts and notes – I was just doing that this morning, like George would give me. So that's fun."

As expected, he is very hands-on with the upcoming final season of Clone Wars, which made many fans happy when it was announced back in SDCC. The original series didn't end as well as anyone wanted so Filoni is more than happy to finish the series the way he wants.

"And then obviously with Clone Wars I'm very in the weeds on that and will have to be, because I myself have had to go back and watch a whole bunch of stuff that I had done, and I went back and watched Revenge of the Sith and Attack of the Clones in depth again. I'm like, "I have to upload this whole timeline." Just the intricacy of how the clones got made and where Dooku was and all of those things were stuff that I was just doing from memory at the time, because I was in it. Then I switched time periods and went on and did Star Wars Rebels, so to go back into Clone Wars, I have to remember, "Wait – where was everybody? How did that work?" And I had charts and figured all this stuff out, but I've uploaded the chip now, so I'm good."

Filoni apparently trusts the people behind Resistance so we can only hope that the show's quality is up to the standard of various Star Wars animated projects. These are big parts of the lore's canon after all so it has to be taken seriously.

Star Wars Resistance is slated for a release sometime in 2018, though we don't know when exactly.
