What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian is a documentary series about the making of the popular Disney+ series. Outside of some violent images and scenes from the series, there’s nothing to worry about. However, younger viewers may find the extensive interviews to be over their heads, and tweens may find some of the conversations a bit boring unless they are mega fans of the show. But for Star Wars superfans, these behind-the-scenes peeks and insights are a fun bonus.

What's the story?

DISNEY GALLERY: THE MANDALORIAN is a docuseries that offers an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at what went into creating the popular Disney+ series, The Mandalorian. Creator Jon Favreau and his teams of directors, cast members, and production teams reveal what it is like to work for a live-action show set in the Star Wars universe, and how their individual visions and creative work fit into it. In addition to interviews with individuals key to the show’s success, there's lots of of behind-the scenes footage during different parts of the production process, also showcasing some of the advanced technology and techniques that helped make it all happen. Throughout the series, bonus scenes from the show are shown. 

Is it any good?

This compelling docuseries features a wide-range of filmmakers to offer some interesting insight into what it's like working for the Star Wars franchise. Directors Bryce Dallas Howard and Rick Famuyiwa, actors like Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano, and a long list of others who are responsible for telling the story of The Mandalorian come together to discuss the making of the series, which requires a commitment to the universe’s overall narrative, and the mythology that drives it. 

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian pays homage to the work and creativity that made the series into what it is today. But younger fans may find it a little boring, and others may want to hold on to the magic of the fictitious world, rather than learn more about the real world that builds it. Nonetheless, older (and committed) fans of the series, as well as up-and-coming TV and movie makers, will find it worth watching.
