With The Mandalorian reaching its conclusion in the UK on Friday 1st May, check out our blog here, Disney+ has announced an exciting look behind the scenes of the hit series with Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.
Beginning on Monday 4th May (Star Wars Day itself), it’s an eight-episode documentary series that pulls back the curtain on the production of the first live-action Star Wars series, featuring exec Producer Jon Favreau (who also wrote six of the eight episodes in Season 1) alongside members of the cast and crew.
Each installment will uncover different aspects of the production with interviews, never-before-seen footage and roundtable conversations hosted by Favreau. Fans will get an inside look at the filmmaking process, the legacy of George Lucas’ Star Wars, how the cast brought the characters to life, the series’ groundbreaking technology (including ILM’s StageCraft system), the artistry behind the show’s practical models, effects, and creatures, the iconic score by Academy Award Winner Ludwig Göransson and connections to the broader mythos.
Also streaming on May the Fourth (Be With You) is the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the hit animated series which has spun seven seasons and a feature film since its debut in 2008. Fans can watch not only the first six seasons but also the brand-new seventh season exclusively on Disney+!
