Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian Brings Fans Behind The Scenes
So, if you sat in quarantine wondering, “Wow, I wonder what will happen to Star Wars TV between the end of The Clone Wars and the start of The Mandalorian?”
You need not wonder any longer.
This morning, StarWars.com reported:

This May the 4th, also known as Star Wars Day, a brand-new series debuting on Disney+ will take us behind-the-scenes of the first Star Wars live-action series, The Mandalorian. What started as a fan-generated grassroots holiday, Star Wars Day has become a full-fledged celebration of the Star Wars saga embraced by the entire galaxy. This year, fans can look forward to the highly-anticipated conclusion of Star Wars: The Clone Wars alongside the global premiere of the new eight-episode documentary series, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.
Of the new series, show-runner Jon Favreau said:

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… We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”
The Mandalorian is MUST SEE TV for any Star Wars fan; especially, if you haven’t been enamored with either the Prequel Trilogy or Sequel Trilogy. You can hop right in after only viewing the Original Trilogy (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi) with no worries. And, a full season of The Mandalorian might just ignite your passion to explore some of the stuff produced after Darth Vader saved Luke Skywalker.

The project is also perhaps unique as it’s not often an eight-episode documentary is made about a season of a TV show that was only eight episodes long.
While there’s no mention of any Mandalorian season 2 content, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if something looking ahead to the new season was included in the rollout.
Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will premiere on Star Wars Day, May the Fourth. The acclaimed animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars also has its series finale on the same day.
