The documentary will explore never before seen footage from the cutting room and roundtable conversations hosted by director, writer, and producer Jon Favreau.
One of the episodes will explore how the special effects and props team brought The Mandalorian’s creatures to life. Which should be interesting to watch.
Also in the documentary fans will be treated to a look at George Lucas’ legacy, technology used in The Mandalorian, the show’s music score, and connections to Star Wars characters across the galaxy. To sort of connect the dots.
Faced with a lack of new content due to the global pandemic, like many other companies, there is a need for new content for its streaming service, and Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian can fill that role until new Star Wars content is ready.
One good thing is that Season 2 of “The Mandalorian” had finished filming before the production shut down was mandated, Disney has not indicated if the second season’s release date will be affected.
If your like me, a pretty big Star Wars fan, this documentary series should be fun, interesting and a way to pass the time until Season 2 premieres.
