Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Will Use VFX Tech Pioneered By The Mandalorian

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will utilize the groundbreaking visual FX technology used on The Mandalorian. Formally called Stagecraft, but known as, ‘the Volume,’ the technology uses LED walls to create photo-realistic backgrounds. Using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine as the muscle.

Director James Gunn said he plans to make use of the technology when filming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Gunn revealed this during an exchange with a fan on Twitter. You can check out the tweet below.

From what Gunn had to say it appears as if he will use it sparingly. And not to the extent of The Mandalorian. It’s been reported that Taika Waititi is also taking advantage of the technology on Thor: Love and Thunder.

Stagecraft not only allows the background environment to move with the camera, but it is also incredibly helpful with lighting. As well as allowing the actors to better immerse themselves in the scene, as opposed to being surrounded by a giant green wall. In the years to come, it is likely this technique will become commonplace on both big and small screen productions.

The Guardians of the Galaxy are my favorite franchise within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Unfortunately, production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn’t expected to begin until later this year. With the film being scheduled for release sometime in 2023. So fans still have a little bit of a wait until the Guardians take flight again.

What are your thoughts on Stagecraft becoming more and more common in the future? Let us know in the comments down below!
