“Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian”
Series Premiere – Monday, May 4
In “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian,” Executive Producer Jon Favreau invites the cast and crew to share a look at the making of the series. This eight-episode documentary will “pull back the curtain” on “The Mandalorian,” with each chapter exploring a different aspect of the show through interviews, never-before-seen footage, and roundtable conversations hosted by 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.”
Topics covered in the docuseries include the filmmaking process, the legacy of George Lucas’ ‘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.
“Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian” will premiere three days after ‘The Mandalorian’ will wrap its first season in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland. New episodes of the documentary series will stream every Friday on Disney+.
