The Mandalorian himself, Pedro Pascal, has taken a moment to thank the cast and crew who came together to make the latest season of the show.
Everywhere you look on social media, it seems like everyone is buzzing with takes and appreciation for The Mandalorian. The show, which finally brought Star Wars to live-action TV, has been the crown jewel of Disney Plus since it came out.
With the second season over now, and leaving things in a very exciting place going forward, it’s nice to take a moment and reflect on what the show has achieved.
That’s something Pedro has done, in a move acknowledging the people who make the show, as well as the fans for their support.
In an Instagram post, the 45-year-old hailed all involved saying: ‘To @jonfavreau & @dave.filoni, all of our directors, the cast, the crew, all the magic makers behind #TheMandalorian, and most of all to the fans. Please take a bow.’
Filmmaker Jon, known for directing Iron Man and last year’s The Lion King, acts as the showrunner, and wrote many of the season’s episodes and even directed one.
Interestingly, the show sported an all-star directing line-up all season. Ant-Man’s Peyton Reed, Robert Rodriguez, Dave Filoni, Carl Weathers, Rick Famuyiwa and Bryce Dallas Howard all took turns helming episodes this season.
The show shot from October 2019 to March 2020, finishing just before the coronavirus pandemic could affect filming. However, post-production on the show was done remotely.
For all those working hard on the show after shooting wrapped, they truly were magic makers. Bringing together a production as complicated as this from home can’t have been easy.
Here’s hoping that, as the Covid-19 vaccination is distributed, the third season of the show can begin filming in the new year. Fans will be anxious to see where it’s headed next, and we can’t wait to see where this team of creatives take us.
