The industry-changing techniques that brought Mando and Grugo to Disne+ usher in a new era of film craft….

Initially, it seemed like the quietest seven-Emmy haul in Hollywood history.

However, Lucasfilm and its subsidiaries have never really been about awards. Awards, of course, are nice. But it’s the process, the work that matters most.

Moreover, if The Mandalorian was to win awards, it feels safe to say that things like Special Visual Effects, Sound Mixing, Cinematography, Prosthetic Makeup, Stunt Coordination, Stunt Performance, and Music Composition make sense as additions to the trophy case.

For the production of Season 2, ILM and its vendors utilized a mix of old and new techniques to bring each episode to life. With 5,000 visual effects shots across eight episodes, that’s no small feat.

“The iconic effects house increased the physical size of the StageCraft LED Volume, which would again be used for over half of all scenes, and this season also marked the debut of ILM’s state-of-the-art real-time cinema render engine Helios; the high-resolution, high-fidelity engine was used for all final pixel rendering displayed on the StageCraft LED Volume,” added the Star Wars mother ship.

“In addition to digital wizardry, practical effects played a huge role in realizing the world of The Mandalorian Season 2, as envisioned by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.”

Meanwhile, you can watch a new video taking fans through the production of the award-winning show. “Today, Industrial Light & Magic is celebrating the Emmy-winning, groundbreaking visual effects of The Mandalorian Season 2 with a special look behind the scenes.”
