Star Wars: The Mandalorian Micro Set Update on the status of the set and The Blast Doors: Where are they now?

The last few days at the filming location for Star Wars: The Mandalorian has been fairly quiet. We aren’t sure if they’re wrapping up or if they’re about to enter into another phase of set building at the location. Most of the older sets have been removed and there’s a lot of visible dirt now.

However, the first Tatooine styled courtyard is still there. We’re talking about the one with the orange blast door. There seems to be a few of these door frames around. We aren’t sure if they’re changing back and forth between the pristine door frame and the destroyed door frame or what. But there you can see one of them moved aside for now.

The door frame today:

Here are two older photos of the door from the previous weeks showing the door’s rough time:

We’ve also seen a makeshift foam workshop pop up. The foam is what’s used to make that black lava type substance we saw around the other marketplace sets. But we also did see a few foam rocks also built for the Tatooine styled set as well, being used like the stones were for Episode IX’s Black Park filming. In someways, it might be a good sign that more filming will continue at the location but it isn’t clear how much they’re making at this point.

For now all that remains of the filming location is this section:

We’ll keep you updated on any movement from Star Wars: The Mandalorian! The show is looking and sounding really good! We’re hearing a lot of chatter we can’t discuss at the moment but you’re right to be excited if you are.  Also, make sure you’re following Jon Favreau on Instagram for the rad photographs he’s shared so far from The Mandalorian. If he keeps it up, he has a real future in this Star Wars news reporting game.
