Fans of The Mandalorian got a number of extra treats when the hit Disney + show’s second season dropped. Not only did Mark HamillLuke Skywalker appeared and not only did Boba Fett return for his own special episode, but the credits scene at the end of the finale announced that a brand new Star wars the show was on its way to Disney +: The book about Boba Fett.
Little has been revealed about The book about Boba Fett since that time, even though we know the show is produced by Robert Rodriguez, who directed the Boba Fett episode of The Mandalorian, along side Jon favreau and Dave Filoni there also EP this new series. We know that too Ming-Na Wen repeats his role as Fennec Shand in The book about Boba Fett, as the story takes to where we last left off at the end The Mandalorian as Boba Fett and Shand operate in the criminal underworld.
With The book about Boba Fett to be released at Disney + in December this year, Collider’s own Steve Weintraub had to ask Rodriguez what fans can expect when he spoke to the filmmaker about his work with Disney + Billie Eilish Cinematic Concert Experience Happier than ever: A love letter to Los Angeles. And while Rodriguez was understandably tight on his Star wars series, he is extremely excited for fans to watch the show:
“[I] can not say anything about it right now, but it’s coming out in December … Wait until you see what’s coming. It’s going to blow in your mind. That’s all I can say. I can talk it all I want because I know it delivers. It delivers too much. People are going to get so pumped when they see it. ”
Rodriguez then spoke more generally about the revolutionary volume technology used to bring shows like The Mandalorian and The book about Boba Fett to life, enabling filmmakers to generate backgrounds with real-time visual effects so actors can see the digital environment while shooting a sound image. But Rodriguez, who has spent his career as a digital filmmaking lawyer and developed his own unique workflow, explained why he probably would not use this technology for a film:
“At first I thought it might make the most sense for a series because you could have lots that you could reuse and places you could often come back to that it would be impossible to get to regularly in a series. I do not know if I would use it very much in a movie where only one-off scenes are performed. They are only a few minutes long and then you will never go back to that place again. As for a sequel to ‘We Can Be Heroes’, I thought to myself’ Would I use the volume at all? Or would I shoot a traditional green screen again? ‘Because I have some pretty cool stuff. ”
That City of Sins filmmaker said he prefers green screen for movies so he does not have to consider the background and VFX environment before post-production:
“What’s different about volume is that you still have to do the work with the visual effects. It’s just, do I have to do it before I shoot? Or do I do it after? On a TV series you can pretty much find out that you’ll need these particular things.On a movie I like green screen more so I can point out what that thing is going to look like later.I can kind of start shaping the foreground with the kids, 11 kids in the foreground. I can turn it on a set and then really ring in the background later. ”
Rodriguez went on to explain why he probably would not use the volume when instructing We can be heroes continuation next year:
“If I did it in the crowd, I would have to figure it all out in pre-production. That means it pushes your movie shooting date really far back. If you have small children, these children will be so old when you finish all your pre-production. So it depends a bit on the movie and the show and the tool. Jon [Favreau] found the best way to use it for Mandalorian and now Boba Fett. I think it was a really good thing, but I do not think it is necessarily a tool suitable for any project. ”
Rodriguez declined to reveal whether he is back to instruct any of The Mandalorian Season 3, so we just have to be patient and wait. The good news is The book about Boba Fett is now only a few months away.
Look for our full interview with Rodriguez on Collider soon. Happier than ever: A love letter to Los Angeles will be released on Disney + on September 3rd.
