Why Dave Filoni Should NOT Run Lucasfilm
Dave Filoni is considered by many Star Wars fans to be George Lucas’s Padawan ever since he first appeared on the scene by the maker's side. Working on great works like The Clone Wars and Rebels, he has had his hand in many of the creative aspects within the Star Wars Universe. Most recently, he has been getting his own live action directing credits in The Mandalorian. He is beloved by many fans alike, so much so that many would want him to become the president of Lucasfilm either now or when Kathleen Kennedy decides to retire, thinking him the natural heir to the company. However, is that really such a good idea? What does it take to run a company, let alone run a franchise as large as Star Wars under the banner of the Disney corporation. Can a simple director become a president of a company? Many would argue yes because that is what happened to George Lucas. However, does that necessarily happen these days? Could Filoni continue to follow in his mentor's footsteps?

However, what is not talked about nearly enough is the effect that Star Wars had on Japanese culture and media, specifically anime.

Bo-Katan Will Make Appearance In 'The Mandalorian' Season 3
The Mandalorian Season 2 set out to expand the scope of the show and Din Djarin's world view, or should we say, "galactic view." This was accomplished by introducing him to numerous characters from critical points in the Star Wars timeline, including Luke Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, and, perhaps most importantly for Din's character, Bo-Katan Kryze.
