    I hope the Mods chase was intentionally slow, because if they can’t make a real chase scene in The Volume, and we get a slow-speed pod race in Kenobi, oof

    Er…you need only watch other scenes in the same show (like the speeder bike/ train assault in episode 2, the Naboo fighter in beggar’s canyon), and a number of scenes in Mando, to see that they can create really fast vehicle/ chase scenes in the Volume.

    This was clearly particular to this scene and it allegedly has to do with three key things:

    1. They used an extensive set with narrow streets for it, not the Volume

    2. They decided to go almost full practical with it, shooting the physical Vespas moving in camera down these narrow streets

    3. Rodriguez’s amateur directing style often makes things look really BTS. And given the above approach, that was enhanced.

    Combined, this made for…a slow chase. Will be interesting to learn more about it later though.

    But this was clearly an anomaly, given what we’ve already scene of the Volume.

    A slow-speed podrace for senior pilots like Sebulba and Ben Quadinaros could be pretty fun, though.

    Or just an extended sequence wherein none of the podcasts start.

    We could go quite far down this rabbit hole...so I'll simply say "It's close...very close" :cool:
