Take A Look At Making ‘The Mandalorian’ In ‘Disney Gallery’ Trailer
by Erik Amaya
In this trailer for Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, series creator Jon Favreau and directors Dave Filoni, Deborah Chow, Rick Famuyiwa, and Bryce Dallas Howard look back on bringing the series to life. Featuring roundtable discussions with the directors and the cast, and plenty of nifty-looking behind-the-scenes footage, the series promises to take a look at key aspects of the production; including the innovative way the series extended sets, Werner Herzog‘s devotion to The Child puppet, and the 501st’s place in Star Wars history as the fan group became real-deal stormtroopers for the show. Sure, it might be fluff, but its the sort of fluff we used to love seeing from Star Wars productions.
Long-form behind-the-scenes Star Wars documentaries like From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of Saga and the revealing The Beginning: Making Star Wars Episode I inspired generations of movie-makers, film critics, vlogers, and special effects artists thanks to their unique intimacy with the making of the galaxy far, far away. It would seem Disney Gallery will do the same even if it has a bit of Disney gloss on it. Then again, Disney’s willingness to go behind the camera is also a long standing tradition — going back as far as The Reluctant Dragon feature film. Sure, they smooth over the rougher aspects of production, but giving people an insight into how movies are made truly makes it accessible. Hopefully, the series will continue that tradition.
Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian debuts May 4th on Disney+
