Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek told CNBC that the series will not be delayed by the pandemic. “Mandalorian was shot before Covid really hit. And so we’ve been in post-production, and there will be no delay with Mandalorian.”
An October release date for The Mandalorian’s follow-up year was confirmed during a Disney earnings call in February.
Animation supervisor Hal Hickel said a typical season of the show features just less than 4000 effects shots, more than you’d see in a summer blockbuster. Right now, that’s being worked on remotely.
