An Impressive Visual Effects Reel from The Mandalorian

The Mandalorian won seven Emmys this week: Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup, Outstanding Musical Composition,  Outstanding Sound Mixing, Outstanding Stunt Coordination, Outstanding Stunt Performance, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series, and of course, Outstanding Special Effects. The effects are what makes the series seem like a movie, one that just continues, to the delight of fans. Enjoy this overview of the visual effects from season two.

As you can see, they used every trick in the book to make you believe you're in a galaxy far, far away. Not only CGI, but puppetry, stop motion, digital effects, animatronics, miniatures, LED backgrounds, whatever works. Visual Effects Supervisor Richard Bluff explains it as we go. The seamless way all these different techniques blend together in the finished product paid off handsomely.  (via io9)
