On Star Wars Day — May the Fourth — Disney+ will give Star Wars fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look with the documentary series Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.
“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.”
The eight-episode documentary series will pull back the curtain on The Mandalorian, with each chapter exploring 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.
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+.
In addition to the documentary series, May the Fourth will also be the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. After seven seasons, one of the most critically acclaimed chapters in the Star Wars saga will come to a close on a special day, Monday, May 4, giving fans around the world the chance to watch the finale together for Star Wars Day.
The Emmy award-winning continuation of the greatest space fantasy of all time, Star Wars: The Clone War was created by George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation with Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian) serving as Executive Producer/Supervising Director.
