Star Wars: The Mandalorian getting behind-the-scenes docuseries on Disney+

Star Wars fans are getting a huge gift from Executive Producer and Director Jon Favreau and Disney+ on May the Fourth (aka Star Wars Day), as close as we come to a globally accepted Star Wars holiday, a new eight-episode documentary series that will go behind the camera to look at how the breakout streaming series “The Mandalorian” was made.

The series from Disney and Lucasfilm became a pop culture phenomenon after premiering in November. You’ve probably seen approximately 1,000,000 memes of The Child, aka Baby Yoda, over the last few months. He is awfully cute.

In “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian,” fans will get an unprecedented look at the making of the series with special insight from the cast and crew. The eight-episode documentary series pulls back the curtain on “The Mandalorian.” 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 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.”

Topics this season 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 from across the galaxy.

“Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian” will premiere three days after “The Mandalorian” will wrap its first season in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, and Switzerland. New episodes of “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian” will stream every Friday on Disney+. There’s no debut date set yet, but at least we’ll have the new docuseries in the mean time.
