How did you get to The Mandalorian?
The filmmaker’s initial interest in The Mandalorian stemmed in part from the cutting-edge technology used in the production. “I went to visit (Jon) Favreau on the set of Mandalorian season 1 because everyone was talking about Volume technology,” he said.
The Volume is the ingenious 360-degree soundstage from Industrial Light and Magic that first came into play with season 1 of the series, and uses seamless LED screens to digitally alter the background in real time as you film via Stagecraft . However, Reed’s love for the show extended beyond the high-tech production, the geeky side of him playing the biggest role. “I love Star Wars and I love Favreau, so when Season 2 came around, Jon called and said, ‘Would you like to come over and do an episode?’ I was like, “Yeah, absolutely.” I originally signed on for the second episode of season 2, and Jon had written a rough script, then developed it and we worked together,” he went on to mention.
About the episode that the creative directed for the show, Collider did a review. “The Passenger,” Reed’s episode, follows the titular Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal/Brendan Wayne) on his search for information on other Mandalorians with the help of a female passenger, known only as Frog Lady, who needs a ride to Trask. However, their trip doesn’t go as planned and they end up getting attacked by the Krykna spider in the process.
directed the end
However, it should be noted that after having worked on that chapter, Lucasfilm was delighted with him and asked him to return for the finale. The mythical fragment of the return of Luke Skywalkerthe tension on the Imperial ship and the fall of Moff Gideon came from the wits of the one who will be the director of Ant-Man 3.
So that was the first one we filmed for the season 2. It was not the first episode to air, but it was the second episode. It was the first one we shot and they were excited about it, and they had this ending coming up, and all he said was, “There’s going to be some kind of big change in the ending.” I was like, “What are you going through?” And he said it was going to be a very emotional episode and then he explained to me what it was about, and I read the script and I was like, “Absolutely, I’m doing this.” We already started working on the script and formulating Quantumania, but it was still early and we had time, and I said, “I can’t pass up this opportunity,” he finished.
