They've called this documentary Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, and it's a whopping 8 episodes in length. As Abed Nadir noted in Community, sometimes the documentary about the making of a production ends up being better than the production itself - have you ever seen Heart of Darkness?

May the 4th Star Wars Disney+ new releases: Clone Wars, Mandalorian

Today we're taking a peek at what Disney+ has in store for Star Wars day, aka May the 4th (be with you). While this wouldn've been a fantastic point at which to premiere new episodes of The Mandalorian, that's not exactly what the team at Disney has in mind.

Disney shows new Baby Yoda toys that don’t ship till spring

The Disney Shop revealed another Baby Yoda plush toy today. This wouldn't be a big deal on its own, but this reveal is strange. Much like the first Baby Yoda (aka The Child) plush toy (and every other official Baby Yoda toy), this new plush won't be available until late February of 2020. It's as if Disney wants to drive fans into the loving embrace of independent artists creating their own yarn baby Yodas on Etsy!

Why Baby Yoda plush toys aren’t ready for Christmas 2019

Why Baby Yoda plush toys aren’t ready for Christmas 2019

You cannot buy an officially-licensed Baby Yoda plush toy in time for Christmas 2019. That's by design... sort of. As Lucasfilm product licensing SVP Paul Southern said today, "It was important to us that the reveal of the new character, the Child, be a special moment for fans, and we could not be more thrilled with the response." Lucasfilm and Disney felt it was so extremely important to keep Baby Yoda a secret that they did not include imagery or descriptions of the character in the first wave of license-ready media for manufacturers. As far as they knew - no such character would even exist!

In this episode, we get to see the inside of a long-fabled piece of Star Wars prop history - via the made-up word of a toddler! ALSO: Spoiler alert!
