For Lucasfilm’s Disney+ Original series The Book of Boba Fett, Image Engine returned to a galaxy far, far away for a third time, following the show’s predecessor, The Mandalorian seasons 1 and 2 with season 3 already in the works. Well-versed in the planets, creatures, and droids of Star Wars, the team had jumped into the fray to create Tatooine sand cities, jetpack-powered shootouts, and indomitable Scorpenek droids—all while working through a pandemic.
“We are fortunate to have such a collaborative partnership with the team at Lucasfilm. Without Richard Bluff’s leadership and trust in us, we wouldn’t have been able to produce the quality and the volume of work we were able to accomplish. Our team here really stepped up to this challenge and executed brilliantly on every shot, from the simple to the insane,” explained Robin Hackl, visual effects supervisor at Image Engine. “The collective work of all the studios across all episodes on The Book of Boba Fett is truly astounding and really speaks to what happens when collaborations work”
Robin led the Image Engine team on The Book of Boba Fett to deliver 686 shots in Chapter 1 and Chapter 7. Contributions from the Image Engine team include a complex assassin attack with electrically charged shields and weapons, an epic shootout that occurs across almost the entire finale episode, and more.
“Congratulations to everyone involved for being recognized for your amazing efforts that are displayed in every pixel you touch, to those who coordinated and managed us in getting the project out the door and to all the technical and workflow support we needed to accomplish great work,” Robin cheered. “I am blessed, humbled, and honoured to lead such a team.”
