Disney has announced that they are going to release a documentary featuring the Executive Producer, Jon Favreau, and the cast and crew of The Mandalorian. This show will share behind the scenes stories about how the show came to be and there will even be “never before seen footage.”
Favreau had this to say about it:
“Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian is an opportunity for fans of the show to take a look inside and get to see a different perspective, and perhaps a greater understanding, of how The Mandalorian came together and some of the incredibly talented contributors throughout Season One. We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”
It’s a cool idea. Sounds like Disney needed content and they figured this would be a quick way to get that. This feels like the stuff they would usually use as “extras” on a DVD/ Blu-Ray release, just put up as a show to keep ‘The Mandalorian’ “top of mind” and the Disney+ subscriptions coming until October.
The series will feature eight episodes and release on May the Fourth aka Star Wars Day. There will be new episodes every Friday.
According to StarWars.com:
“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 one thing I will give Jon Favreau and “The Mandalorian” credit for, was that it actually did feel like George Lucas’s ‘Star Wars.’ Disney missed the mark with the sequel trilogy, and it caused huge disturbances in the “fandom” but Favreau seems to get ‘Star Wars’ more and this show was able to bring a lot of fans back. I just hope that those behind it can continue with their momentum without making it too Disney or the “Baby Yoda Show.”
