According to reports, the news was announced via an American Cinematographer piece that explained new technology in VFX. “Shows that planned to leverage in-camera VFX from the start include two that will be shot using StageCraft, Industrial Light & Magic’s real-time animation pipeline for LED volumes: The Book of Boba Fett, which will be released later this year, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, set for release in 2022,” the piece read. “Both series will use the same volume initially built for The Mandalorian in Manhattan Beach, Calif. More Star Wars shows, including Andor, are in production at Pinewood Studios in England, where ILM has built another large StageCraft volume. Season 3 of The Mandalorian is now in production.”
Previous sources stated that filming has already begun in Manhattan Beach, although Pedro Pascal has been busy shooting The Last of Us. The actor portrays the lead role of Joel in the HBO TV series adaptation, where he stars alongside Bella Ramsey who plays Ellie.
Stay tuned for more info on The Mandalorian season three.
