You may know him onscreen as Tony Stark’s friend and security chief “Happy” Hogan, but behind the camera Jon Favreau is leading a revolution in Hollywood. The techniques he helped develop for Disney’s “live-action” photo-realistic productions of “The Jungle Book” and “The Lion King” have evolved to an entirely new manner of film production in “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” where he is executive producer.
Disney and Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars live-action series “The Mandalorian” had a very successful first season with one of its characters “The Child” (aka Baby Yoda) becoming something of a pop icon. Season two will debut later this year and work is already beginning on season three.
While Disney may have issued a ‘slow down’ order for its theatrical Star Wars films, work for television series is getting a green light.
In “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian,” the new documentary series on Disney+, fans will enjoy a captivating look at how “The Mandalorian” was made. The groundbreaking series is broken down for fans with special behind the scenes footage, interviews with the cast and production team, a tour of the sets, and more.
