The Mandalorian season 3 on track to film this year!

Published

on

Showrunner Jon Favreau is open to doing a Mandalorian movie, and is pumped to begin production on season 3 before the end of the year!

The Mandalorian season 2 is just around the corner: mark those calendars for October 30! But ahead of the premiere, showrunner Jon Favreau is already gearing up for production on the next season. Speaking to Variety, he said the team is “on schedule” to get back to work “before the end of the year.”

Of course, COVID-19 has thrown a wrench in things, but Favreau says he and his team are “operating under the assumption that we’ll be able to go forward.” It’s a little easier for a show like The Mandalorian to follow safety precautions since many of the characters, including the lead, are already wearing masks as part of their character’s outfit.

In fact, Pedro Pascal isn’t allowed to take off his character, Din Djarin’s helmet. Yikes, can you imagine being stuck in that thing for long stretches of time? That does not sound pleasant.

“We’re in very small situations and oftentimes we have a lot of characters in masks,” Favreau said. “And we also have a lot of digital work that augments things. So we’re a show that’s probably well-equipped to be flexible based on the protocols that are emerging surrounding work restarting.”

Even with just one season under its belt, The Mandalorian has done extremely well (let’s be honest, it’s totally because of the adorable Baby Yoda). It’s done so well, in fact, that some fans are wondering if there’s potential big screen venture in the future. For his part, Favreau is “definitely open to it.”

The line is blurring now. Things that you would have only seen in the movie theater, you’re seeing on streaming, and I think it could go the other way as well.

Disney recently announced that it was organizing itself to focus more on streaming, so I can definitely see something like this happening. Movies, TV shows…they’re all kind of becoming the same thing, so why not make a Mando movie? Maybe one could serve as the season 3 finale!

In the meantime, we can watch the further adventures of Mando and Baby Yoda when The Mandalorian season 2 premieres on Disney+ on Friday, October 30.

Radhika Apte in her most recent interaction with Vikranth Massey on social media from London has admitted that she does not believe in the institution of marriage.  When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.

Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
