The Mandalorian is a groundbreaking series in many ways. Not only was it the first live-action Star Wars series, but it's also the first to use virtual production technology during their shoots. The system was a collaboration between ILM and Epic Games and combines real-time game engine renderings with video wall technology to create epic backdrops in a sound stage. So rather than racing across the world between locations, scenes were captured inside an LED video wall and ceiling where digital 3D environments are projected, immersing actors in the Star War Universe. In this behind-the-scenes video, creator Jon Favreau shares the new tech that went into making the first season.
