Get ready to peek behind the curtain and witness the making of one of the most popular new series to arrive in years, Disney+’s ‘The Mandalorian’. Headed up by the mastermind behind the regular series, Jon Favreau, ‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’ will feature a revolving roster of directors, writers, actors, and more, as they reveal a little bit about what goes into such a massive undertaking.
As Favreau stated earlier this month:
“‘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.”
Among the panelists glimpsed in the trailer for the new docuseries are directors Deborah Chow, Rick Famuyiwa, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Taika Waititi, writer Dave Filloni, and actors Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, and Carl Weathers.
Watch the trailer for yourself below:
