On the appropriate date of May 4th, Disney are launching a documentary on the making of “The Mandalorian” on Disney+, entitled “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian”.
The series will be 8-episodes, with Jon Favreau to host. It will take us behind-the-scenes of the first “Star Wars” live-action series, “The Mandalorian”.
Per the announcement on starwars.com:
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.
“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,” said Favreau. “We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”
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.
“Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian” will premiere on Monday, May 4, with new episodes every Friday on Disney+.
