When The Mandalorian came to Disney+, Star Wars fans were immediately mesmerized by this new storyline brought to life by the mind of Jon Favreau.  Once the last episode of season one of The Mandalorian aired, fans were immediately asking when they could have more.  Soon after, it was announced that season 2 of the popular series would be returning to Disney+ in the Fall of 2020.  But, if you're a fan of the The Mandalorian and can't wait for more Star Wars in your life, Disney+ is bringing you a new series in May 2020 that takes a behind-the-scenes look at making this series.  After watching the first episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, I'm hooked and look forward to learning more.

About Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian (from Disney+)

Disney GALLERY: THE MANDALORIAN is an eight-episode documentary series 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, behind the scenes footage, and roundtable conversations hosted by Jon Favreau.

Review of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian

I dove right into the first episode, excited to learn more about what happened behind-the-scenes of this show.  The first episode focused on the story of the directors and, by the titles of upcoming episodes, it appears that each will look at a different facet of creating the story.  Jon Favreau leads roundtable discussions with the directors as they each share stories of how they came to the Star Wars universe.  It was fascinating to see how many talented minds and notable directors played a role in creating the first season.  Favreau chose to bring on several different directors to lend differing perspectives to the same vision.  

And that vision very clearly included the responsibility to the Star Wars fans.  Several of the directors including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard spoke to the responsibility to do justice to the first Star Wars live action television show and working with characters that are so meaningful to so many people.  But the directors as brought their own personalities to the show as well.  Favreau, speaking of Taika Waititi said "Taika knows how to find the humor in the action," when looking at some memorable moments from the series like the "do the magic hand thing" line towards The Child.

If you're a fan of The Mandalorian and enjoy a look at what happens behind the camera in producing a show, this will definitely be something for you to enjoy on Disney+ and fill that gap until the next season airs this fall.  I was definitely intrigued by the first episode and will check out the remaining episodes as they release.  New episodes of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will release each Friday!
