Pull back the curtain on The Mandalorian with an all-new documentary series
Star Wars Day is a special day in every fan’s calendar. May 4th has become synonymous with the galaxy far, far away and fans traditionally gather in their masses to celebrate all things Star Wars. Sadly, with the coronavirus pandemic confining us to our homes, 2020 is set to be a somewhat subdued celebration, however, Disney Plus has a plan to put the smile back on our faces.
Today, Lucasfilm has announced an all-new documentary series detailing the making of Jon Favreau’s immensely successful live-action series, The Mandalorian. Titled, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, the eight-episode documentary series will take us behind the curtain for a birds-eye view into the painstaking work Favreau and his team went through to bring the popular series to our screens.
In Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, executive producer Jon Favreau invites the cast and crew to share an unprecedented look at the making of the series that quickly became a pop culture phenomenon after premiering last November. Each chapter explores a different facet of the first live-action Star Wars television show through interviews, never-before-seen footage, and roundtable conversations hosted by Favreau himself.
Topics this season include the filmmaking process, the legacy of George Lucas’s Star Wars, how the cast brought the characters to life, the series’ groundbreaking technology, the artistry behind the show’s practical models, effects, and creatures, plus the creative influences, the iconic score, and connections to Star Wars characters and props from across the galaxy.
The series starts streaming on May 4th exclusively on Disney Plus.
May the Force be with you.
