The Resistance Broadcast – Interview: Frank Ippolito – Creature Effects For ‘The Mandalorian’ and ‘The Force Awakens’

 

On this episode we interview creature/costume maker and puppeteer Frank Ippolito who worked on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Mandalorian seasons 1 and 2, and other awesome franchises like Pirates of the Caribbean and shows like Stranger Things! We talk all about his contribution to bringing fantastical elements of theses worlds to life, and get a close and personal look at that scene stealing sweater-wearing dock-working Mon Calamari he played in The Mandalorian!
