New Video Shows Off More ‘Mandalorian’-Style Filmmaking and It’s Still Mind-Blowing

Disney and Lucasfilm have been pulling back the curtain on the making of The Mandalorian and it never ceases to be impressive. The show’s “stagecraft” technology, where a rear-projected LED screen creates a reactive real-time environment for a film scene, is nothing short of mind-blowing, representing a whole new avenue for filmmaking in the years ahead.

No ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Sequel Being Planned Right Now, Director Ron Howard Confirms

Ron Howard Confirms Lucasfilm Isn’t Developing a Solo Sequel

BEGIN SLIDESHOW Ron Howard confirms that Lucasfilm isn’t developing a Solo: A Star Wars Story sequel Even though Solo: A Star Wars Story probably doesn’t rank highly on anyone’s list of the best Star Wars films, the movie ended on a pretty big cliffhanger when it was released in 2018. So it makes sense that some fans are hoping to get a sequel, if only to tie up loose ends. Over the last two years, rumors about Lucasfilm’s plans for Alden Ehrenreich’s young Han Solo have continued to swi...
