A lone gunfighter makes his way through the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.
The Mandalorian is an American space Western streaming television series created by Jon Favreau for Disney+. It premiered with the service’s launch in November 2019 and is the first live-action series in the Star Wars franchise. It begins five years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983) and stars Pedro Pascal as the title character, a lone bounty hunter who is hired to retrieve “The Child“.
Star Wars creator George Lucas began development on a live-action Star Wars television series by 2009, but the project was deemed too expensive to produce. After he sold Lucasfilm to Disney in October 2012, work on a new Star Wars series began for Disney+. Favreau signed on in March 2018, serving as writer and showrunner. He executive produces alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson.
The series’ title was announced in October 2018 with the start of filming at Manhattan Beach Studios in California. Visual effects company Industrial Light & Magic developed the StageCraft technology for the series, using virtual sets and a 360-degree video wall to create the series’ environments. This has since been adopted by other film and television productions.
The Mandalorian premiered on Disney+ on November 12, 2019. The eight-episode first season was met with positive reviews. It was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards and won seven Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards. A second season premiered on October 30, 2020, and development work on a third season has begun.
In November 2020, Minecraft released a Star Wars-themed downloadable content, which included locations and characters from The Mandalorian. Din Djarin and Grogu appear in Fortnite Battle Royale‘s chapter two, season five event, Zero Point. Djarin’s sniper rifle and jetpack were also available as items.
Composer Ludwig Göransson was recommended by several of his previous collaborators to Favreau, including directors Ryan Coogler and Anthony and Joe Russo, and musician Donald Glover. Favreau knew that music would be important to the series due to the impact of John Williams‘ score on the Star Wars films but also wanted the music of the series to be different from the films. He wanted the series to sound “a little grittier, a little edgier and a little more tech-oriented”.
Göransson first met with Favreau in November 2018, when Favreau showed the composer concept art for the series and discussed his inspirations for the story and tone, including Western and samurai films. They also discussed how they felt when they first heard Williams’ Star Wars music, and Göransson set out to recreate those feelings and “capture the soul of what Star Wars is” but in a new way.
The basis of the main theme was created from Göransson experimenting with a bass recorder, digitally manipulating it to make it more “futuristic”. Guitars, a piano, drums, and synthesizers are also featured in the main theme.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, orchestra players were recorded remotely or in smaller, distant groups for the second season. An album for the first four episodes of the second season has been released, and another will be for the final four episodes.
Visual effects studio Industrial Light & Magic, a subsidiary of Lucasfilm, opened a new division in November 2018 called ILM TV, specifically intended for episodic and streaming television.
He found the process to be effective, but time-consuming. When he began working on The Lion King, Favreau worked with visual effects vendor Moving Picture Company, technology developer Magnopus, and the game engine software Unity to develop a new virtual camera system that allowed him to film scenes in a virtual reality environment as if he was filming with physical cameras.
For The Lion King, the results of the virtual photography were then rendered by MPC as the final animation for the film. On The Mandalorian, Favreau wanted to use virtual technology to aid live-action photography and also develop the video wall system.
The environments were designed by the series’ visual art department, led by Lucasfilm’s creative director Doug Chiang and production designer Andrew L. Jones.
The Manhattan Beach Studios set is referred to as a “volume”, which is traditionally the name for motion-capture stages.
Favreau’s initial intention was to use the video wall as a way to provide realistic interactive lighting for the actors, with a section of the screen behind the actors displaying a green screen so a higher quality version of the background could be added in post-production. During filming tests with the technology, the team realized that the Unreal Engine could render visuals fast enough that they could have the background move in relation to the camera.
This effect causes some distortion to the image on the video wall but looks like a real environment when viewed through the camera. The images rendered on the video wall in real-time were often of a high enough quality to be used as final effects when filmed on set.
