The Mandalorian is a Star Wars spinoff created by Jon Favreau. The second season is already under production now for a previously announced October release date. The production team has added another member in form of Extraction director Sam Hargraves.

Sam Hargrave in an interview with Collider spilled some beans related to the upcoming The Mandalorian season 2. He informed in the interview that he will work as a second unit director on the project.

Why was Sam Hargrave hired in The Mandalorian?

Clearly, The Mandalorian’s creator Jon Favreau has some big plans with the upcoming season. It might be expected that action veteran Sam Hargrave will bring interesting action sequences.

Sam explains why he was hired for this job. He added, “They actually came to me. It’s crazy. I was in the middle of the post  ( production of Netflix’s Extraction ) and I’m editing my movie and I got a call from my buddy Colin Wilson, one of the line producers, who said, ‘Jon  and the people over here are looking for someone to bring into the team or add to the family who has experience with action.’ The team that was there did a great job in the first season and it was just all fun. But they wanted to build on that and bring a new perspective and take it to another level for the next season. So, I was like, ‘That sounds like a fun challenge.’”

Sam appreciates working with the team in The Mandalorian. He explains that even though the team was already doing its job perfectly, his experience with working on superhero action movies will be helpful. Sam Hargrave further added that “We worked closely with the stunt team there, with Bryan Watson and the team that had done the first season; they did a really great job. You know, it was just to bring a little extra perspective, add a few things, things I’ve learned while working on superhero movies, little tricks which make the performances easier and using visual effects to enhance certain things. Just bringing a little bit of experience and knowledge to where we could take it to another level and up the ante.”

He even explained why it is necessary that a character’s action sequence should be in sync with his role in the film. “The balance you have to find and the truth you have to adhere to is the character you’ve developed. So, if you have a character and for this guy — who’s more of a gunslinger, a bit more of a brawler — it would be out of character for him to come into a scene and throw out a round-off, backwards double flip and do a crazy kick just because you can, or because he has a helmet on . You have to remember to stay true to the character. So yes, you can put whoever you want in there, but you have to make sure that you reign in the excitement and make sure you’re true to the character and the story.”

Sam believes that action sequences will much different from his previous movie Extraction. He said “I am confident. The difference is, with Extraction, I’m in the editing room so I can be extremely confident [the action] is going to be what it’s going to be. I’m not editing these episodes. But I know the footage we delivered, as a second-unit, they seemed to be happy with.”

“The next season is really, really cool. The way the story arcs is really cool. So, we tried to have the action represent that and take it to the next level. I think we did that.”

Well, Sam has hyped a lot about the upcoming season of The Mandalorians. Fans will have to wait to find if Sam can deliver what he has bragged.
