Hal Hickel Promises More Baby Yoda in Season Two of ‘The Mandalorian’

The coronavirus continues to stall economies and force certain industries to work from home. The latter is the case with the post-production team for season two of The Mandalorian. Luckily, there are no delays to the release of the show. Although working from home may ideal, for some, it poses an even greater challenge.

In an article by Variety, Rick Famuyiwa, who directed a couple episodes from the first season of The Mandalorian, discusses the challenges they’ve had with doing post-production work from home.

“We’ve been hunkered down in the post process, it’s been a challenging and great experience so far, but it’s good to have that to take my mind away from the daily madness that we’re living at the moment.”

Although it has presented a challenge to the team, Hal Hickel, the animation supervisor for The Mandalorian, explains that the workload will be worth it in the end for Baby Yoda fans.

“A big tentpole summer film, like say ‘Avengers,’ might be around 2,000 visual effects shots, and these series are a little shy of 4,000 visual effects shots for season 1, and season 2 is no different. We’re doing them in around the same amount of time, maybe even less time, than a big summer film, plus we all have to work remotely. We’re in the middle of that tsunami now, but we’re going to get it all done, people are going to get their Baby Yoda, I promise.”

It’s wonderful to see the production team in good spirits despite the challenging circumstances they are facing. There is nothing better than having Baby Yoda to brighten your day. When it’s all said and done, fans will hopefully find a deeper appreciation for the work that goes into bringing their favorite Child to life.
