Disney+ Launches 8-Part Behind The Scenes Docu-Series Of ‘The Mandalorian’ This Star Wars Day!
We are heading toward May, and that means Star Wars Day – May the fourth be with you – so Disney+ are celebrating with the addition of ‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’, an 8-part behind-the-scenes documentary series about the brilliant drama. It will also be the release date for the very final episode of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’.
In ‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’, Executive Producer Jon Favreau invites the cast and crew to share an unprecedented look at the making of the series which quickly became a pop culture phenomenon after premiering last year in the US. Debuting on the day that a worldwide community of fans celebrate all-things-Star Wars – Monday, May 4 – the docu-series is an eight-episode programme that pulls back the curtain on ‘The Mandalorian’. Each chapter explores 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.
“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,” commented Favreau. “We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”
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 3 days after ‘The Mandalorian’ wraps its Season 1 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 new documentary series, after 7 seven seasons, one of the most critically acclaimed chapters in the Star Wars saga, ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’, will come to an end on the 4th May, giving fans around the world the chance to watch the finale together for Star Wars Day. You can see the finale trailer below.
The Emmy award-winning continuation of the greatest space fantasy of all time, ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ was created by George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation with Dave Filoni serving as Executive Producer/Supervising Director. With ambitious, ground-breaking computer animation, classic characters, astounding action, and the timeless battle between good and evil, ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ expands the Star Wars story with all-new adventures set in a galaxy far, far away. The highly anticipated conclusion to the critically acclaimed series explores the events leading up to ‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith’.
‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’ and the finale of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ both premiere on Star Wars Day (4th May 2020) on Disney+.
