Disney is giving us the gift of a behind-the-scenes look at The Mandalorian season 2 on Christmas Day.


We'll get a behind-the-scenes look at The Mandalorian's second season on Friday, Dec. 25, with an hour-long special on Disney Plus . The Making of Season 2 documentary will examine all eight episodes and include interviews with the live-action Star Wars show's cast and crew, Disney said Wednesday.

The special will come a week after the season 2 finale, which will hit the streaming service this Friday. The documentary will look at early concept art, storytelling decisions and the tech used to make the show, among other topics. Hopefully we'll get some insight into the decisions to bring Ahsoka Tano and Boba Fett into the show and how they crafted Baby Yoda's real name.

Putting it all in one hour is a slightly different approach to the one they took for season 1. Earlier this year, we got an eight-episode documentary series looking at the show's first eight episodes.
