The Mandalorian employs new technology, a version of which was shown at SIGGRAPH 2019 in LA. The set is actually a cube with video walls on 4 sides, including above. While the LA stage was not the actual Mandalorian set, it was driven with the same UE4 real-time engine. This process allows for what is referred to as ‘final pixels’ in-camera.
