the mandalorian technology

Jon Favreau is proving to be one of the foremost filmmakers when it comes to testing game-changing technology, from his dazzling visual effects work in The Jungle Book, to the audacious CGI scale of the upcoming The Lion King. And The Mandalorian, for which Favreau acts as showrunner and executive producer, is no exception.

Favreau may have been touting the upcoming Disney+ show’s use of practical effects that pay homage to the techniques used in the original Star Wars films, but The Mandalorian is doing more than just using rigs to shoot miniature ships. According to actor Giancarlo Esposito, who stars in the series alongside the titular Mandalorian, Pedro PascalThe Mandalorian will be using a unique blend of physical sets and digital technology that is unlike anything we’ve seen in a Star Wars property before.

The first footage from the series was shown at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, where /Film got a first glimpse at it. Read The Mandalorian footage description below.

This YA dystopian movie has everything: zombies, explosions, deadly missiles, and Giancarlo Esposito in a fabulous coat. Aiden Gillen’s also rocking a sweet turtleneck, but the fashion choices of the prestigious character actors is besides the point: the Maze Runner trilogy is officially reaching the end of the labyrinth.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure is closing out the YA dystopia series — admittedly, one of the better ones we’ve seen in the past decade — with a bombastic third and final act. That means the Gladers, led by Dylan O’Brien‘s Thomas, will be going back into the deadliest maze they’ve faced yet. Because as everyone knows, the only way to move forward is to go back.

Gus Fring better call saul

In its second season, Better Call Saul became as good as Breaking Bad, the series it spun off from in the first place. It achieved this by finding a unique voice to call its own, refusing to feel just like its predecessor. In place of Walter White, a monster hiding in an everyman’s clothing, the series put us on the side of Jimmy McGill, the kind-hearted schemer whose every step toward “Saul Goodman” was like a jab to the soul. It’s a remarkable show, even if its very different tone hasn’t won over every member of Breaking Bad fandom.

So it’s not surprising that much of the marketing for Better Call Saul season 3 focuses on the character of Gustavo Fring, the popular Breaking Bad villain. What better way to convince those who fell off this (great) show (you fools!) to come back than to lean hard on something familiar? That brings us to this new promo, a training video for Los Pollos Hermanos where Fring teaches you, his future fast food employee, about communication.
