Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian won 7 awards at the 72nd Annual Emmy’s. Many of the figures who worked behind the scenes on the live action Star Wars show were honored for their outstanding work for the first season, including Ludwig Göransson, the Swedish composer who picked up the Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series. This was Göransson’s first Emmy nomination and win, although he previously won an Oscar for Black Panther and two Grammy’s.
Jon Favreau’s Disney+ show also won the Emmy for Outstanding Special Effects, something that was expected given the technological feat achieved in the first season of the show. The 360 LED screens, dubbed “The Volume”, allowed the show to have the practical feel of the original and sequel trilogies, while also saving money and time in post production. The Volume is clearly something that Disney have taken a liking to, as the upcoming Obi-Wan show is also scheduled to use the new technology, as well as Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder, scheduled to film next month.
The Mandalorian also won Emmy’s for Stunt Coordination, Production Design, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing.
The Mandalorian Season 2 begins October 30th. This is the way.
