Last week, it was announced that the upcoming documentary series “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian” would be released rather fittingly on Star Wars day, May 4. Today, the trailer has been released for the docuseries, and it promises to be a fascinating, in-depth look at the very popular show.
The trailer features discussions at a round table led by creator Jon Favreau, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the sets with actors such as Pedro Pascal and many of the directors who led episodes on the series including recent Academy Award winner Taika Waititi (“Jojo Rabbit”).
“The Mandalorian” follows the story of a lone bounty hunter by the name of The Mandalorian, played by Pascal, with other cast members including Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Nick Nolte, and Giancarlo Esposito. The series has sparked a lot of memes thanks to the character of ‘The Child,’ often referred to as ‘Baby Yoda,’ becoming a viral sensation.
The documentary will consist of eight episodes and will stream on Disney+, just a few days after particular countries such as the UK are able to watch the first season finale. The series already finished streaming its debut season at the end of 2019 in the U.S.
Season two is currently in the works and this documentary series will no doubt provide Star Wars fans something to engage with while they wait for the new season in October, as well as providing entertainment during these unprecedented times where much of the world is in lockdown.
Disney + has a number of new original shows lined up, including “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and “WandaVision” from Marvel Studios, which are expected to debut later this year.
