Star Wars" Ahsoka Plans Show George Lucas" Apprentice Can Surpass His Master

  • Dave Filoni's meticulous planning and storytelling skills prove that he might surpass his mentor, George Lucas, in the realm of Star Wars.
  • Filoni's knowledge and careful development of Ahsoka Tano's character and destiny showcase his ability to craft a cohesive and impactful narrative within the Star Wars universe.
  • As Lucasfilm's Chief Creative Officer, Filoni's planning abilities will be crucial in ensuring that future Star Wars projects have a cohesive storyline, in contrast to the sequel trilogy, which suffered from a lack of a clear outline.
Ahsoka Tano’s Star Wars story proves that Dave Filoni might just surpass his master, George Lucas. Dave Filoni has been an integral part of Star Wars storytelling since before Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012. Lucas and Filoni worked closely together on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, famously creating Anakin Skywalker’s Jedi Padawan, Ahsoka Tano. Later, after Disney began to produce its own Star Wars content, Filoni co-created Star Wars Rebels, and he has since been instrumental in crafting the Disney+ corner of the Star Wars universe. Ahsoka Tano’s story has now been told across multiple mediums, including The Clone Wars, Rebels, Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and most recently, Ahsoka, all of which were made under Filoni’s supervision.
It has been announced that Dave Filoni is now Lucasfilm’s Chief Creative Officer, an incredible achievement for someone who once started as George Lucas’ protégé. Filoni will work closely with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy to develop new Star Wars projects, offering support to creatives and ensuring that the franchise retains a cohesive storyline. Filoni’s promotion is a massive shake-up for Lucasfilm, but it makes sense. Underneath the surface, Filoni is a meticulous planner, and no character’s journey proves this more than Ahsoka Tano’s.
Dave Filoni Has Always Known Ahsoka's "Destiny" Filoni has always been very involved with Ahsoka’s story. He cares about what happens to her character; he wants each major turning point in her arc to push her to become stronger, wiser, and better developed. He has seemingly always known where her future would lead, as evidenced by her new role as “Ahsoka the White,” which was teased in the now partially retconned Star Wars Rebels epilogue and cemented in Ahsoka. And, back in 2019, Filoni posted a sketch of Ahsoka’s possible future for #RebelsRemembered, which depicted Ahsoka and Sabine Wren walking through a snowstorm, supposedly in search of Ezra Bridger – the exact scenario that kickstarted Ahsoka’s main storyline.
One excerpt in The Art of The Mandalorian (Season 2) illustrates Filoni’s knack for planning:
“‘There were a lot of debates about [Ahsoka Tano pointing the way to Luke Skywalker],’ Dave Filoni recalled. ‘And Jon and I went back and forth, because if [Ahsoka can't take care of Grogu], then who will? Taking care of the Child is not her destiny. That's not what I've been planning for her to do [laughs], so I can't change it up. But it is interesting if Ahsoka's there along the way, not as somebody who takes this burden away from Mando but as somebody to say, 'You might be forgetting that this kid has a choice too. It's not just about you and your oath to your covert.’”
This quote implies that Filoni has always, on some level, known where Ahsoka’s story is headed. He has a concrete idea about her destiny as a Force-user and as a protector of the galaxy. She is not the future hope of the Jedi, as Luke Skywalker and later Rey Skywalker became. She may have found a new Padawan to train, but even her relationship with Sabine proves that she is very much dictating her own future – Sabine was, after all, an incredibly unlikely Jedi Padawan. The only thing that remains to be seen now is where that path leads after the events of Ahsoka. What is Ahsoka’s place in the galaxy now that she’s finally overcome her demons?
