A special behind the scenes look at The Mandalorian season 3 is coming in the form of a new Disney Gallery episode. A series that launched on Star Wars Day 2020, the Disney Gallery line collects on set, post-production, and post-release footage of cast and crew members discussing new entries in the Mandoverse. With the return of old friends and places merged with new heroes and technology, this is the definitive peek behind the curtains for all things The Mandalorian.
The official Star Wars Twitter account announced that Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will return June 28 with “The Making of Season 3.”
No additional details about the special were announced. Like the BTS projects for previous seasons, interviews with creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni and stars Pedro Pascal and Katee Sackhoff are expected, as well as updates from ILM on the development of StageCraft technology.
Will The Mandalorian Season 3’s Disney Gallery Hint At The Future?
One of the stranger things to come from The Mandalorian season 3’s post-release days has been the radio silence from Lucasfilm. While being cagey isn’t unusual for the company itself, Favreau and Filoni have always been very available to the media, showing an eagerness to discuss their work without being tightlipped. Missing that to this point has left many of season 3’s unanswered questions even more pressing, and the new Disney Gallery feature will be the first opportunity to find clarity.
The biggest story pivot was the focus on Bo-Katan Kryze as the main protagonist, and with her story resolved many have looked for insight into that decision. Similarly, Moff Gideon’s return in the penultimate episode and presumed demise in the finale wrapped up a plot line that began in The Mandalorian season 1 much sooner than expected. Explanations from Favreau and Filoni on the thought process behind these decisions and how they’ll impact future storytelling will be most welcome.
Behind the scenes looks at Star Wars projects are always a treat. While no documentary has topped Empire of Dreams to this point, there have been some excellent BTS offerings in the Disney era, with The Director and the Jedi leading the charge. The Disney Gallery episodes for The Mandalorian season 1 were more comprehensive than their counterparts in that there were eight, with each focusing on a different aspect of the show, but they also included roundtable discussions. More footage from the set of The Mandalorian season 3 will make for a stronger special, bringing viewers into expansive filmmaking world.
