This show also takes advantage of new "green screen" tech which can handle more complex outdoor action in a realistic manner.

The cool thing about Stagecraft, which Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) / Lucasfilm invented, is that it actually replaces green screens:

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said a Disney executive visited the set of The Mandalorian and thought that the Stagecraft-generated environment was physically there. “He had no idea he was standing in a virtual set,” Kennedy said, according to Slashfilm. “That’s how unbelievable it is.”

That's from https://qz.com/1754288/disney-is-trying … ndalorian/ - which also has a cool video about this great innovation. The future will look even better in the future. big_smile

I've stumbled upon this video today, the tech is even more fascinating than I thought! smile

For decades, film and TV productions have used green and blue screens to place actors into new environments. Now, LED walls are revolutionizing this process by projecting 3D environments in real time behind actors to provide the illusion of being in a physical location. These methods were put to the test on Disney’s "The Mandalorian," of which over half was filmed indoors on a virtual set. This process of combining traditional cinematography techniques with advanced world-building technology effectively eliminates the need for a green screen.


You should check out the docuseries Disney Gallery: the Mandalorian. It has a whole episode just about "the Volume". It's really cool...
