With Star Wars day fast approaching, fans of a galaxy far far away have something to get excited about during these unprecedented times. As reported by Deadline, the documentary series “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian” will arrive on Disney+ May 4, with series creator Jon Favreau hosting.
The first season of “The Mandalorian” debuted in November last year, becoming one of the biggest hits on Disney+ as well as receiving favorable reviews from audiences and critics alike. Favreau wrote six of the eight episodes in the first season, with a variety of directors on board with the series, including Academy Award winner Taiki Waititi (“Jojo Rabbit”) who directed the season finale.
The eight-part series will take a deeper look into the making of “The Mandalorian,” with interviews, discussions and unseen footage on the agenda according to Deadline. The series comes at a perfect time for international audiences too, with the finale of “The Mandalorian” season one airing May 1 in the UK and other countries, just three days before the scheduled release of this documentary series.
Included in Deadline’s article is the following quote from Favreau giving his thoughts on the upcoming docuseries:
“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. We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”
Pedro Pascal’s Mando is set to return in October 2020 with season two, and this upcoming documentary series should satisfy fans in the wait for its return. Filming has already wrapped according to an Instagram post from actress Gina Carano.
The finale of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” is also set to occur on the famed May 4, with every Star Wars film also available on the streaming service for those looking to marathon the franchise.
