What is ‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’ about?

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian is an eight-episode docuseries that comes from The Mandalorian producer, Jon Favreau. Through each episode, fans will get to see exclusive behind the scenes footage, interviews from the cast and crew, and roundtable discussions hosted by Favreau.

According to a Lucasfilm press release, viewers will get an unprecedented look at “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.” In a statement about the docuseries, Favreau promises fans will get a better understanding of The Mandalorian and how it came to life. 

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,” Favreau said in the statement. “We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”

The docuseries could reveal some Baby Yoda secrets

For starters, viewers are anxious to know if The Child is somehow related or connected to Yoda or Yaddle. Many fans are also curious about his relationship to the Jedi and the force. The hope is that through even the smallest clues, fans may be able to piece together details about Baby Yoda’s backstory. 

While the press release doesn’t talk about Baby Yoda aka The Child, his origins, or his role in season 2 of The Mandalorian, it does promise to explore “connections to Star Wars characters” from “across the galaxy.” So, if the showrunners and writers talk about Baby Yoda and the inspiration behind the character, they could answer some questions fans have had since the show premiered. 

When does ‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’ premiere?

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will premiere on Monday, May 4 on Disney+. As acknowledged in the Lucasfilm press release, this date was chosen because of its significance to Star Wars fans. 

“This May the 4th, also known as Star Wars Day, a brand-new series debuting on Disney+ will take us behind-the-scenes of the first Star Wars live-action series, The Mandalorian,” the press release reveals. “What started as a fan-generated grassroots holiday, Star Wars Day has become a full-fledged celebration of the Star Wars saga embraced by the entire galaxy. This year, fans can look forward to the highly-anticipated conclusion of Star Wars: The Clone Wars alongside the global premiere of the new eight-episode documentary series, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.”

Considering season 2 doesn’t premiere until November, this docuseries should give The Mandalorian fans the Baby Yoda dose they’ve been craving.
