How the worlds of The Mandalorian (and Baby Yoda) got made in Manhattan Beach

And it did it all in California, almost entirely at the MBS Media Campus in Manhattan Beach. How?

How The Mandalorian was shot on a virtual stage using the Unreal Engine

Instead, actors in The Mandalorian performed in an immersive and massive 20’ high by 270-degree semicircular LED video wall and ceiling with a 75’-diameter performance space, where the pra...

How ‘The Mandalorian’ and ILM invisibly reinvented film and TV production

“The Mandalorian” was a pretty good show. On that most people seem to agree.

‘The Mandalorian’ Behind-the-Scenes Video Reveals the Groundbreaking Tech Used to Create the Series

It’s hard to believe, but much of The Mandalorian was, well, not real. Not physically, anyway.
