The Mandalorian, Dave Filoni, Obi-Wan’s Hossein Amini and more on Disney+ Star Wars

Dave Filoni gets a Vanity Fair profile, with plenty of quotes from various Star Wars luminaries: George Lucas, Kathleen Kennedy, Jon Favreau. “There isn’t a thing that we do in the storytelling space that I don’t check with Dave,” Kennedy said. “What I find about Dave is you don’t just sit down and have a discussion about plot or review characters inside the Star Wars world. You end up having meaningful, thoughtful discussions about what it is we’re trying to say inside the storytelling. He has a lot of empathy.”

In an interview with Discussing Film, Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show writer Hossein Amini says that he was initially approached about a film version of the story by Stephen Daldry, who he says was the original director of the project (as rumored back in 2017). But he talks a great deal about the series and Star Wars in general as well.

The Mandalorian cast answers some questions. Everyone is a loner, apparently.
