The Mandalorian is the big show at Disney Plus, and you’re now ready to get deep background on the scene in a new eight-part documentary series for the streaming platform.
The series will premiere on May 4 (also known as Star Wars Day). The new episode will premiere every Friday.
Disney Gallery: Mandalorian will explore various aspects of the series through numerous interviews with the cast, crew, and production team. The series will also include never-before-seen footage from the courtroom floor and round-table conversations hosted by director, writer, and producer John Favreau. Favreau, in a press release, described the series as “an opportunity for fans of the show to look inside and see a different perspective, and perhaps a greater understanding, of how The Mandalorians came together.
He described the series as follows.
One of the topics to be explored is how the special effects and theater equipment brought Mandalorian creatures to life. This includes the adorable Baby Yoda, or, as Disney and Lucasfilm officially refer to her, The Child. When the show premiered in November 2019, Baby Yoda was Mandalorian’s revolutionary superstar, so it’s no surprise that the new Disney documentary wanted to shed light on the new favorite Star Wars character in the world. Other topics Disney Gallery: Mandalion will cover will include the legacy of George Lucas, the technology used in The Mandalorian, the show’s score, and connections to Star Wars characters across the galaxy.
The new documentary series also helps Disney cope with its streaming platform – the lack of new content.
Like any other company, Disney suffered a tremendous impact on the epidemic. All of his shows have stopped happening and the upcoming Disney Plus series (The Falcon and Winter Soldier, for example) is affected.
Disney needs new content for its streaming service, and Disney Gallery: Mandalorian can fill that role, at least until the new Star Wars content is ready. Mandalorian’s highly anticipated second season ended before production stopped, and Disney did not say whether the second season’s release date would be affected. It collided with Disney+ in October.
