Director Deborah Chow helmed the third episode of The Mandalorian, which premiered last week on Disney+. She reflected on that experience in a recent interview with The New York Times. Chow also explained how it helped her prepare for what lies ahead on the Obi-Wan series for Disney+.
“One of the biggest benefits is that I just spent the last year in the Star Wars universe and I had great mentors, coming in under Jon (Favreau) and Dave (Filoni),” noted Chow. “Absorbing that, I feel, was the best training I could have had to take on the next one.”
“So much of it just feeling it and understanding it, on an instinctual level, to know what’s right and what’s wrong with it,” continued Chow. “And there’s so much knowledge — every prop, every costume is important. Every detail really matters.”
Chow was named as a director of the series during D23 Expo, shortly after Ewan McGregor confirmed his Obi-Wan return.
However, there is at least one character that won’t make it in Obi-Wan’s show.
“I don’t think the baby (Yoda) will be coming with us on that one,” noted Chow. “I think the baby steals the show.”
