Disney+ releases The Mandalorian docu-series taking fans behind the scenes on Star Wars Day ahead of season 2 – The Sun

DISNEY+ have launched a docu-series about the making of The Mandalorian to keep fans happy before the release of the second season.

The launch of the popular show's second season is a long way off, so Disney+ have dropped the eight part behind the scenes series on Star Wars Day.

Debuting on May 4, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian is led by executive producer, writer and series two director Jon Favreau.

Cast and crew share an unprecedented look at the making of the series which quickly became a pop culture phenomenon.

The docu-series pulls back the curtain on The Mandalorian and 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.

He said: “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.

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

Topics across the episode 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.

The docu-series premieres just three days after The Mandalorian finishes airing the first season in the UK and will stream every Friday.

The news came just days after it was revealed Oscar winning director Taika Waititi will not be returning to direct the second series.

The New Zealander directed the final episode in the first season of the popular Star Wars series and also voiced the droid IG-11.

But he will not be back directing for the second season, even though he has not ruled out coming back to voice IG-11.

Speaking on Instagram live stream, Taika explained his busy schedule stopped him from returning to The Mandalorian.

He said: "I’m not directing any of the episodes of The Mandalorian because I was doing another film, a soccer film with Michael Fassbender."
