Good news for anyone who can’t get enough of Baby Yoda. Disney+ has announced that it is releasing an eight-part behind-the-scenes documentary based on The Mandalorian. The show has been the breakout hit in the Disney+ portfolio, thanks to a pretty healthy Star Wars fanbase and some expertly crafted special effects. On Star Wars Day (May 4th) fans will get a chance to see how those effects are created with the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.
In The Mandalorian documentary series, executive producer Jon Favreau will take viewers on a never-before-seen exploration of the Star Wars universe. Members of the cast and crew will share exclusive insights into the making of the pop culture phenomenon. Each chapter explores a different facet of the first live-action Star Wars television show through interviews, footage, and roundtable conversations hosted by Jon Favreau.
“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 1,” said Favreau. “We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”
The eight-part series will release new chapters every Friday, and will cover topics such as the filmmaking process, George Lucas’ Star Wars legacy, the series’ groundbreaking technology, the artistry behind the show’s practical models, effects, and creatures. You can also get a glimpse into the creative influences, the iconic score, and connections to Star Wars characters and props from across the galaxy.
