Want a peek at The Mandalorian docuseries? Look no further!
When it comes to the world of Star Wars, it’s hard not to look at The Mandalorian and think “this is the way.” No, I’m actually not incredibly nuts about the story or the show itself, but it’s clear there was a lot of enthusiasm for it. Disney brought Jon Favreau together with a bunch of creative filmmaker and they did what Star Wars does best. They pushed the boundaries of technology. Say what you will about the franchise’s actual quality, but there’s something magical about how it has a tendency to push technology. The Mandalorian is no different.
But if you’ve already watched the Disney+ series more times than you can count and are still hungry, it’s cool. Disney has clearly anticipated this problem and planned for it. On May 4th, we will get the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, an eight-part docuseries chronicling the making of the series. Check it out in all it’s glossy glory down below!
Personally, I love the approach they’re taking the docuseries. It’s not just a series of talking heads intercut with footage taken on the set. Instead, it’s a conversation at a roundtable between all the filmmakers. From Jon Favreau to Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Taika Waititi, and Deborah Chow, it looks like we’ll be getting some primo insight into the process.
We also have similar roundtables for the actors and other talent — so we’ll hopefully get a well-rounded look at the process.
Oh yeah, and we can’t forget about that badass tech that made the whole production process. I’ve written extensively about this in the past, but I can’t get over how cool the new studio sets are. Rather than opt for green screens, they have these real-time location sets projected all around them. It’s certainly eye-catching, but it makes the ambitious vision of the franchise possible.
My only concern is that this will be one giant circle jerk, so to speak. Every production comes with problems and I like it when we get to see what those problems are and how they were overcome. I also like to see those creative clashes that lead to beautiful results. These are often glossed over in Disney-centric featurettes. But with Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian being eight episodes long, I’m hoping that’ll open things up for more conflict.

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian starts airing on Disney+ on Monday, May 4 and will feature new episodes every Friday going forward.
