Disney+ will be celebrating May the Fourth with the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian. Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which will wrap up its successful seven season run on Star Wars Day, just released a new trailer for the animated series’ finale. The finale will explore the events leading up to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars was created by George Lucas. Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian) executive produces and is the supervising director.
The new eight-episode documentary series, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, allows fans a behind-the-scenes look at the series which launched one of the most popular characters in recent television history – Baby Yoda. Premiering on May 4, 2020, the in-depth look at the creation of the series is hosted by executive producer Jon Favreau and will feature cast and crew members sharing their experiences on the series.
“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 1,” said Favreau. “We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you.”
New episodes of the documentary series will premiere on Fridays on Disney+.
