A Patron and long-time listener and supporter of the show reached out to ask when – if ever – there will be a DVD for season 1 of The Mandalorian. Which raises questions about how they’ll be handling DVDs in general, now that Disney+ is here…
On today’s show, I’ll explore Tim McMahon’s question in light of The Rise of Skywalker and the Clone Wars for season 6 and 7, and I’ll even bring that other “Star”-related franchise into the discussion. We’ll also talk about how there are literally hundreds of Mando products already, even though Mando Mondays haven’t even started! Plus, I’ll share the one thing I found that seems to suggest a Mando season 1 DVD is on the horizon… Punch it!
Do you think that Disney Gallery Behind the Scenes will also show up as a special feature on the DVD/Bluray or as a separate series?
Thanks for the question! I don’t think they’ll release it as a separate series. I’m torn on the question of whether they include it in the season 1 DVD, though. I wonder if they would put maybe the first two episodes of the Gallery series on there, as a way to entice people into signing up for Disney+ to see the rest of the series…
hi i hoping that when season 2 is over season 1 of Mandalorian will go on dvd i no there is so much wats to streem things these days and i no one day dvds will go fingers crossed
Hi David! I think that would be a great solution for them, for sure. Fingers crossed, indeed… Thanks for your comment!
Do you really think they’d use Göransson’s score for the audiobook? They haven’t used the sequel scores for anything.
Also, any follow-up thoughts on the lack of DVD releases for Resistance S02, Mando S01, and TCW S07?
Hey Brendan! I feel like they’d have to use them for the audiobook – it’s just not going to feel like the Mandalorian without it. And as for the DVDs, I’m still kind of shocked. It does make me wonder what the churn is like for D+, if it’s so significant that they’re worried DVDs would add to the problem. Maybe – just maybe – if they can get their production schedule to the point where churn becomes less of an issue for them, they’ll consider it…
