Previously “Star Wars: The Acolyte” showrunner Leslye Headland spoke about how the upcoming High Republic-set series didn’t make use of The Volume technology at all in its creation.

It’s a far cry from many of the other “Star Wars” shows on the air from “The Mandalorian” to “Ahsoka” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi” which all make extensive use of the tech, though “Andor” barely touched it – instead opting for real world location filming.

As this takes place decades before the prequels however, the series has to show an opulent and decadent society – one which is blindly and blissfully unaware of the dark times to come for subsequent generations.

Now, in an interview with IGN, Headland says the use of practical sets extended to a location rarely done without major CG assistance in the “Star Wars” galaxy – the city planet Coruscant:

“It was a challenge but we wanted to utilize practical sets for Coruscant and that meditation room that you see, we wanted to do it justice but also have it feel real and tactile. We’ve utilized practical sets much more so than the other shows. And part of that just came out of necessity and part of it was a creative choice.”

Will that choice work? We’ll find out for ourselves when “The Acolyte” premieres on the Disney+ service on June 4th.
