Disney’s series The Mandalorian, set in the Star Wars universe, is a big-budget production with a huge scope. But despite the resources behind it, they still found themselves without the budget to travel internationally like the makers of the movies can. So instead, they built a huge indoors set surrounded by LED screens to put the actors in place.

Usually film and TV productions use green screen to place the actors into different worlds. But the trouble with green screen is you get green light spillage from the surrounding screen. Instead, The Mandalorian used virtual sets where the backgrounds were rendered in real time using the video game engine Unreal, which meant the reflections and light leaking was genuine. Is this the end of green screens? This great video from Insider breaks down exactly why this is so interesting.
