If you've been using your free time in quarantine to binge all the movies and shows on Disney+, both old and new, you'll soon have another title to add to your list. For Star Wars fans who loved The Mandalorian, we're now getting a behind-the-scenes look at the live-action series.

Get ready to see Baby Yoda and the titular character back in action again, this time during the making of the show with a brand-new documentary series. As reported by UPROXX, the streaming service will be releasing Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian next month, on the most perfect date: Star Wars Day, a.k.a. May 4. In a statement, creator Jon Favreau said of the docuseries:

"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. We had a great experience making the show and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you."

So what exactly should fans expect from this closer look at The Mandalorian? The press release explains that we'll get to see, "the filmmaking process, the legacy of George Lucas' Star Wars, how the cast brought the characters to life, the series' groundbreaking technology, the artistry behind the show's practical models, effects, and creatures, plus the creative influences, the iconic score, and connections to Star Wars characters and props from across the galaxy."

The eight-part series will premiere new episodes every Friday after its debut on Monday, May 4. If you aren't subscribed to Disney+ yet, there's no time but the present to join in on the fun, Star Wars and beyond. Sign up using this link here.
