Fans of The Mandalorian – Disney Plus' Star Wars spin-off show – won't have to wait until the second season October release date for new content. Disney has just announced that it will stream an eight-part The Mandalorian docuseries on 4th May aka Star Wars Day. (May the fourth be with you – geddit?)

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the streaming service's hugely successful live-action TV show, featuring executive producer Jon Favreau chatting to cast and crew, plus exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage. 

According to Favreau: "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 One.”
