Star Wars Storytelling has an over-four-decade-long tradition of driving innovation in Visual Effects. And ILM’s incredible work on The Mandalorian is no exception. Truly groundbreaking, mind-blowing stuff. Photos via American Cinematographer.

The Mandalorian, also known as Star Wars: The Mandalorian, is an American space Western web television series created by Jon Favreau and released on Disney+. It is the first live action series in the Star Wars franchise. Set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and 25 years prior to the events of The Force Awakens, it follows the title character—a Mandalorian bounty hunter—and his exploits beyond the reaches of the New Republic.

Favreau also serves as head writer and showrunner, as well as executive producer, alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. The series premiered with the launch of Disney+ on November 12, 2019. There are eight episodes in the first season,[5][6] and a second season has been ordered, to premiere in late 2020. The series has received positive reviews.

The Stagecraft technique is even used for some shots of the Razor Crest in space. Again, a completed practical ship isn’t needed, and the screens allows the camera to move around the cockpit of the ship without having to worry about replacing a green screen in post-production with visual effects. Yes, sometimes some touching up is required to get rid of the visible seams of the screen itself, but that’s far less work than building the entire ship digitally and matching it to camera angles that way.
