The Mandalorian’s VFX Team Says Season 2 Won’t Be Delayed

Add The Mandalorian to the list of TV shows and movies soldiering on with post-production despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. While many other high-profile projects had to shut down completely, the digital artists behind the first live-action Star Wars series are continuing to put the finishing touches on the show’s upcoming second season. And more importantly, they insist that the new episodes will still debut this fall as originally planned.

While speaking with Variety, director Rick Famuyiwa and animation supervisor Hal Hickel explained how they’re adjusting to their new status quo of working remotely. Famuyiwa is obviously no stranger to the series, having helmed “The Child” and “The Prisoner” from season 1. However, he admitted that the current state of the world has made his experience “more all-consuming than usual.”

“We’ve been hunkered down in the post process,” said Famuyiwa. “It’s been a challenging and great experience so far. But it’s good to have that to take my mind away from the daily madness that we’re living at the moment.”

Additionally, Hickel laid out how rendering The Mandlorian’s many VFX shots differs from working on other big-budget Hollywood productions.

“A big tentpole summer film, like say Avengers, might be around 2,000 visual effects shots,” Hickel said. “And these series are a little shy of 4,000 visual effects shots for season 1; and season 2 is no different. We’re doing them in around the same amount of time, maybe even less time, than a big summer film, plus we all have to work remotely. We’re in the middle of that tsunami now, but we’re going to get it all done. People are going to get their Baby Yoda, I promise.”

The Mandalorian season 2 will arrive on Disney+ in October.
