Go Behind the Scenes of The Mandalorian on Star Wars Day With a New Disney+ Docuseries


If you've been using your free time in quarantine to binge-watch the impressive library of movies and shows on Disney+, you'll soon have another title to add to your list. As UPROXX reports, a new docuseries on the making of The Mandalorian will be premiering on the streaming platform in May.

Disney+ will be releasing the first episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, an eight-part documentary series, on May 4 (a.k.a. Star Wars Day). Which means we don't have to wait until the show's second season arrives to see new footage of The Child, a.k.a. Baby Yoda, back in action.

"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," executive producer Jon Favreau said in a statement.

So what exactly can fans expect from this closer look at The Mandalorian? According to the press release, the show will cover "the filmmaking process, the legacy of George Lucas's 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."

After Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian's debut on Monday, May 4, new episodes will premiere every Friday. If you don't have a Disney+ subscription yet, head here to learn how you can start a free trial.
