Live-action Start Wars series The Mandalorian has been shooting for a while now but an important crew member has been revealed that will be shooting the film. We have learned that Barry “Baz” Idoine has made the jump from 2nd unit cinematographer to the main cinematographer for Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian, expected to work on eight episodes out of the ten.
Baz was part of the team that shot Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as he headed up 2nd uint and had previously worked on the 2nd unit for Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper.
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
Lucasfilm has recently announced the cast lineup will officially consist of Pedro Pascal (Narcos, Games of Thrones), Gina Carano (Deadpool, Furious 7), Nick Nolte (48 Hours, The Thin Red Line), Carl Weathers (Predator, Rocky), Werner Herzog (Jack Reacher), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), and Omid Abtahi (American Gods).
Jon Favreau will produce and write with the series directing roster including Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
Production has been taking place in California, where we expect to see the Cassian Andor series to be shoot as well.
The Mandalorian is set to drop on Disney+ in the fall of 2019.
