One of the most impressive things about The Mandalorian is the way that it gives you a rather solid idea of what life is like for people living in the larger Star Wars universe. But as grounded in reality as the show makes things seem, it truly is just a game of smoke and mirrors, as evidenced by this excellent breakdown video detailing what all went into a number of scenes. If you’ve haven’t already signed up to The Mandalorian, you can do so here.

It’s easy to forget just how much of The Mandalorian is actually shot on sound stages because the show makes its settings feel so lived-in and realistic. But this new breakdown of the VFX truly illustrates the reality — that a ridiculous amount of work goes into the realisation of each and every single episode.

But it’s another thing to see those effects come together to build something that feels real.”]

None of this sheds any light on what might be in store for The Mandalorian’s second season, but if the first season is any indication, we’ll be seeing an inordinate amount of space-y (but grounded) wildness when the show returns on October 30. Subscribe to Disney+ here.
