Jon Favreau, the creator behind The Mandalorian, has given new updates on the upcoming second season of the Star Wars show.
Starring Pedro Pascal in the titular role, The Mandalorian was a success, tapping into the worlds created in the Star Wars universe while providing audiences with a fresh perspective.
Despite the halt of film and TV productions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the second season is still on track for its October debut on Disney +.
Speaking on the work so far, Favreau said:
We were lucky enough to have finished photography before the lockdown. Thanks to how technology-forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we have been able to do all of our visual effects and editing and post production remotely through systems that had been set up by those companies for us.”
He noted that as a result of the rigors of the television schedule, the second season feels like a continuation of the first rather than a new thing.
As we explore partnering with new filmmakers and having new characters and going deeper with the characters we already have, it’s really been very fun and fulfilling, and I hope people are having as much fun seeing it as we are having making it.”
