Originally posted on French website EffetsSpeciaux.info and translated from French, Dave Filoni discussed the forthcoming second season of the show, touching upon whether or not Rosario Dawson is coming into the show (“I’m not allowed to tell you anything about the second season of the MANDALORIAN, but yes, we saw the character of Saw Gerrera, who was created by George, go from THE CLONE WARS to ROGUE ONE.”) transitioning from animation to live action and what we can expect from the second season in terms of scope and scale.

What are the new narrative and visual goals that you and Jon Favreau have set for the second season of THE MANDALORIAN?

“Without going into too much detail, the challenge was to tell some interesting and moving new stories, evolve our characters, and imagine a solid narrative arch for this whole tale. We also had to think about the scale we wanted to give to these adventures. The visual effects of the films of the saga are so spectacular that we have to try to approach them, but with our means which are those of a series … Of course, we want season 2 to be more spectacular than the first, inspired by the transition from STAR WARS to EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. We tried to create situations with suspense, surprises, while remaining in this universe that we love so much.”

“Technically, I think we used the Stagecraft system (the set surrounded by a giant circular video wall and video ceiling) even better than in the first season. We have taken its applications much further, by integrating the characters into the environments of these new adventures. We learned how to combine classic visual effects and our new special-effects method while filming the first season. It allowed us to come up with new ideas for visual storytelling, and to imagine other ways of directing and filming actors.
