Disney and Lucasfilm, once again, give viewers an inside look at the making of the popular Star Wars and Disney+ Original series, “The Mandalorian.” “Disney Gallery” looks at how the show’s creators decided to move forward following the events of season two and the changes to the characters who appeared in “The Book of Boba Fett.” What started as a series about a bounty hunter who is trying to save a young child’s life turns into his quest for redemption among his surrogate family.

I love behind-the-scenes documentaries and, at just under an hour, this is the perfect length for one of these documentaries. The series had to make a tonal shift and it’s interesting to see how Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau would guide this series away from the bounty hunters and toward the Mandalorians. The introduction of Bo-Katan and her friends in season two set up well for both her season three story arc, as well as the Mandalorian’s season three story arc.

My favorite part of this documentary was when Dave Filoni described how he decided to show Grogu’s escape from the Jedi Temple during Order 66. While Kelleran Beq may not have been known to a wider audience, Ahmed Best has had a contentious relationship with “Star Wars” fans. The man who played Jar Jar Binks received some unnecessary criticism for how the character was written during the prequels. It’s nice to see Dave Filoni bring Ahmed Best back into the fold in a way that makes him a hero. He deserves better treatment than he got and I’m happy he returned.

I hope there’s a season four, although season three ended in a perfect way if they decide to stop the story now. I really wanted to see a season four after finishing season three, and this documentary just made me more excited for future “Star Wars” projects. These documentaries serve a wonderful purpose and I want to see more of them for other “Star Wars” projects as well.

Rating: 3.5 stars
