Bryce Dallas Howard was the latest to take a seat in the director’s chair for Disney+’s Star Wars series The Mandalorian. The episode, titled “Sanctuary,” featured Pedro Pascal’s Mandalorian joining forces with Gina Carano’s Cara Dune to protect a small village.
Speaking with Variety, Howard revealed how she channeled her experience with the Jurassic World franchise when crafting the episode.
“I had worked with the same puppeteering folks on Terminator and Jurassic, so we spent a lot of time playing with the puppet, we wanted to use it as much as possible rather than relying on CG,” Howard said. She also added that “Having the AT-ST be part of the episode was a particularly exciting opportunity for me because we haven’t seen those machines be as scary as that. I thought this is a total T-Rex opportunity. I had this little model of an AT-ST at home and I’d imagine how it stomped around like a dinosaur.”

“I thought of it like this monster in the woods, and the villagers don’t know if it’s real, they don’t know what they are up against,” she continued.
Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. Episodes 1-4 are now streaming on Disney+.
