Filoni's contributions to Star Wars are many and varied. 

He served as the supervising director of the beloved animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which ran for six seasons from 2008 to 2014. 

Under his guidance, the show developed a huge following and became an integral part of the Star Wars canon. Filoni was also involved in the creation of the spin-off series Star Wars Rebels, which followed a new set of characters in the early days of the rebellion against the Empire.

Filoni's impact on the Star Wars universe goes beyond just animation. He has been heavily involved in the development of the live-action shows The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, both of which have been huge hits with fans and critics alike. He has also written and directed several episodes of The Mandalorian, including the season two finale, which featured the return of Luke Skywalker and was widely praised for its emotional impact.

One of the reasons that Filoni's work has resonated so deeply with Star Wars fans is his deep reverence for the original trilogy and his commitment to honoring its legacy. 

He has been vocal about his admiration for George Lucas and his desire to continue telling stories that feel true to the spirit of the original films. At the same time, Filoni has been unafraid to take risks and explore new corners of the Star Wars galaxy, introducing new characters and concepts that have enriched the franchise.

He is currently working on Ashoka as a series, having directed the episode 'The Jedi' in season 2 of The Mandalorian in which Ashoka was first introduced as part of a live action show.
