    ILM has released a new and very insightful mini-documentary on how the ship for The Mandalorian, the Razor Crest, was created. This is yet another behind-the-scenes look at the outstanding and revolutionary visual effects used by the Disney Plus hit show, which won the Emmy for that category last week. Not only did the show pioneer the so-called Volume technology, which is set to revolutionize the entire industry in years to come, but it also brought back one of the biggest joys of how Star Wars was created back in the 70s and 80s - its models (and the 90s too, remember that The Phantom Menace is the Star Wars movie with the highest number of models used).

    The mini-doc also features a lot of behind-the-scenes interviews with the crew that worked on the show. In them, they speak about how the Razor Crest was inspired by military aircrafts like the A-10 Warthog, from the Air Force, and several other WWII ships.

    Additionally, StarWars.com managed to interview the director of the mini-documentary, Chris Hawkinson, who told them:

    He added:

    The Razor Crest will be back on our small screens when Star Wars: The Mandalorian debuts its second season exclusively on Disney Plus, on October 30. You may check out the trailer released last week here, and some exclusive images here.
