With the Coronavirus causing havoc on filming scheduled around the world, it isn’t going to cause a delay to the second season of the Disney+ smash hit series, The Mandalorian.
As the shows executive producer, Jon Favreau, appeared during a virtual panel for Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian at the ATX Television Festival moderated by Vanity Fair‘s Anthony Breznican,
“We were lucky enough to have finished photography before the lock down. Thanks to how technology-forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we have been able to do all of our visual effects and editing and post-production remotely through systems that had been set up by those companies for us.”
He added that he felt that the second season, feels more like a continuation of season one rather than a new thing.
“As we explore partnering with new filmmakers and having new characters and going deeper with the characters we already have, it’s really been very fun and fulfilling and I hope people are having as much fun seeing it as we are having making it,”
With post-production being able to continue remotely, it means the show won’t be delayed and will arrive on Disney+ in October.
Season 1 of the Mandalorian, along with the behind the series documentary, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, are available now on Disney+.
