Polaroid’s New Camera and Instant Film Capture The Mandalorian

Fans of a certain classic analog camera and the galaxy far, far away have a new ultimate bounty: Polaroid unveiled last week a limited edition The Mandalorian Polaroid Now camera and the Child-inspired instant film, available now. Sporting a design inspired by the Disney+ series’ titular helmeted warrior, the stunner of a camera seamlessly blends the retro-cool look and legacy of the beloved Polaroid brand with the aesthetic of one of Star Wars’ most popular new characters.

Ahsoka Tano and Maul Return with New Funko Pop! Bobbleheads — Exclusive Reveal

As fans around the world celebrated the release of the final episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars earlier this year, the design team at Funko was putting the finishing touches on a new line of Pop! bobbleheads. Just as the seventh season showcased a sleeker animation style and more mature characters, as the story edged closer to the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, their adorable mouthless counterparts were imbued with a subtle evolution from earlier renditions.

“The paints on the Pops needed to feel like they properly represented the rendered animation,” says Funko’s senior product designer Reis O’Brien, “which led us to many rounds of trying different techniques of weathering, paint wipes, and dry brush techniques. But it’s always fun to see it all come together

Inside ILM: Creating the Razor Crest Celebrates the Return of Modelmaking Magic to Star Wars

The Mandalorian ushered in a major visual effects innovation with StageCraft, the immersive screen that projects real-time 3D environments. But it also brought back a decidedly old-school technique that formed the very foundation of the original Star Wars: modelmaking.

Today, Industrial Light & Magic, the visual effects house of Lucasfilm, released a new mini-documentary called Inside ILM: Creating the Razor Crest, which tells the story of how ILM built and shot a model of the Mandalorian’s hulking vessel. With the advent of digital technology, models have been used less and less frequently over the years — though respect for the artistry and craft always remained at ILM and Lucasfilm. “Miniatures and motion control are in our DNA at ILM, and it’s been over 15 years since we have done

An Elegant Weapon: Get an Up-Close Look at a Lightsaber from Star Wars: The High Republic – Exclusive

When it came to designing lightsabers for the High Republic era, Lucasfilm knew that they had to be special — elegant weapons for a more civilized age, as Obi-Wan Kenobi might say. So they took inspiration from one of the most legendary swords in storytelling.

“We wanted to make the Jedi distinctive and instantly recognizable as Jedi Knights of the High Republic, and that applies not only to their clothing but to their lightsabers, as well,” says Michael Siglain, Lucasfilm Publishing’s creative director. “Internally, we often refer to the Jedi of this era as ‘the Jedi Knights of the Round Table.’ Taking that idea one step further, their sabers can be viewed as their own versions of Excalibur.”

Star Wars: The High Republic, a storytelling epic that kicks off
