The drone used in the filming of Star Wars: Episode IX

Star Wars is coming to the end of yet another trilogy and to provide the audience with the best cinematic experience possible, Lucas Film is utilizing as many resources as possible including drones.

Chris Monti counts on the site DroneDJ, who went to a drone conference where he ran into Aaron Corera, who runs XM2 Cinematography, a film company, with major acting titles in the international arena.

Among the films that used the company's drones are Aquaman, Pacific Rim: Uprising, Thor: Ragnarok and so much awaited by Star Wars fans: The Rise of Skywalker.

Corera said the drone used to film Disney's hit franchise was the XM2. Below is the movie teaser with scenes captured by the drone. The film is scheduled to arrive later this year.

Company XM2 started using DJI drones to make high quality captures for movie studios, but it was adding new features as requirements grew.

Among its largest aircraft we can mention the XM2 Tango, capable of carrying up to 20 kg at up to 70 km / h, and the XM2 Sierra. The latter was the first to be able to carry an Alexa 65 camera, which records in 6K with 65mm sensor and 20 megapixels. The Sierra is capable of carrying up to 30kg and is priced at $ 70,000. Although it seems a high value, this is nothing compared to the value of the mentioned camera, estimated at $ 150,000 without the lens.
