Star Wars fans will be getting a treat on Star Wars Day this year in the form of a new series centered around The Mandalorian. It’s called Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, and will be a documentary of sorts framed around the show’s groundbreaking first season.

The series’ description reads:

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 that quickly became a pop culture phenomenon after premiering last November. 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 Favreau himself.

Yeah I think I could get down with that! Favreau also had this to say:

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 One. We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”

The series’ topics will include:

  • 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

This definitely sounds like something all fans can get behind, and if you love to see how worlds like this are created, there’s no doubt this series will tickle that itch.

Episode 1 will debut on May 4, and then new episode will hit Disney+ on Fridays.
