Explore The Mandalorian‘s repurposed Gunship ahead of Season 2
With The Mandalorian Season 2 just around the corner and fan anticipation reaching boiling point, ILM has peeled back the curtain to give us an inside look at the creation of Mando’s converted Gunship aptly named The Razor Crest. The sleek craft was once a military craft used to patrol local territories in a time before the Galactic Empire until Din Djarin repurposed the craft for hunting bounties across the galaxy.
Here’s the official line:
Join us as we journey behind the scenes of the Emmy™ Award-winning visual effects behind the first season of The Mandalorian. We’ll pull back the curtain on one of our favorite bounty hunter’s ship, the infamous Razor Crest, and look at the distinctive former military ship from its initial concept design in Doug Chiang’s Lucasfilm art department through to ILM artists building the ship in the digital realm and as a practical miniature for filming. We’ll also look at the parallel development of the custom motion control camera system created by ILM Visual Effects Supervisor, John Knoll to allow for the first motion control shots to film at ILM in 15 years. We hope you enjoy this look ‘Inside ILM’.
Let’s check it out:
Being somewhat of a Star Wars vessel aficionado, I adore the design of the Razor Crest. The craft bears all the hallmarks of its Gunship heritage while boasting some incredible augmentations making the vessel all the more lethal. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want a compact carbon freezing chamber in their cargo hold?!
The Razor Crest will return for The Mandalorian Season 2 which gets underway on Disney+ on October 30. This Is The Way!
