The ATX Television Festival is hosting its first-ever completely virtual festival, which will take place June 5-7, 2020 and will include a special look at the Disney+ Original series, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.

Here are the details:

THE MANDALORIAN: Behind the Camera

Take a look into the creative collaboration that brought Lucasfilm’s first ever live action Star Wars series to life on Disney+. Continuing the saga’s legacy in new and unexpected ways was both a challenging and exciting task that this talented and diverse group of filmmakers took head on. Ahead of season two, we revisit season one to gain an inside look at the epic and critically-acclaimed series, available exclusively on Disney+.

Panelists include:
Jon Favreau • Dave Filoni • Deborah Chow • Rick Famuyiwa • Bryce Dallas Howard • Taika Waititi

Moderated by: Anthony Breznican (Vanity Fair)

The Mandalorian special will be taking place at 4:45 PM CT on Friday June 5th and the festival will also take viewers the Hulu show “Little Fires Everywhere,” and the National Geographic show, “Barkskins”.

Here are some details on those other panels:

BARKSKINS Yappy Hour presented by National Geographic

Grab your pup and join the cast and creator of National Geographic’s limited series Barkskins for a live conversation (with cocktails!) about the sprawling epic airing now. Based on Annie Proulx’s New York Times bestselling novel, Barkskins transports viewers to 17th-century New France for a story filled with mystery, drama and grit.

Panelists include:
Elwood Reid • Marcia Gay Harden • Matthew Lillard

Moderated by: Danielle Turchiano (Variety)


We’ll take viewers inside the writers room of Little Fires Everywhere, the Hulu original series based on the novel by Celeste Ng. Panelists will discuss how they worked together to broach issues of race, sexuality, and class in ways that both built on and departed from the themes of Ng’s novel, and how their own life experiences informed how they brought the story from book to screen. All eight episodes of Little Fires Everywhere are streaming now on Hulu.

Panelists include:
Liz Tigelaar • Attica Locke • Raamla Mohamed • Amy Talkington • Nancy Won • Shannon Houston • Harris Danow • Rosa Handelman

Moderated by: Liz Tigelaar
