- The Mandalorian accidentally left a boom mic in a shot and fans are calling the show out on Twitter.
- The moment goes down midway through Chapter 4: The Sanctuary.
In the event that you haven’t already conned one of your friends into giving you their Disney+ password, let’s catch you on The Mandalorian real quick. The show, set in the Star Wars universe, is absolutely crushing it on Disney’s new streaming service and already has a massive fan base. But uh, unfortunately, that massive fan base noticed a giant editing fail in a recent episode: The show fully left a boom mic in a shot.
The mic can be seen about halfway through Chapter 4: The Sanctuary, when The Mandalorian is chatting with Omera. You probably didn’t notice the mic because the shot in question is super dark, and it actually only shows up when you turn up the brightness on your TV, computer—or in my case, my broken old iPhone. And even then it’s not that easy to see, so it’s pretty understandable that the show’s editors missed it.
Still, Twitter is going nuts:
I, for one, am willing to suspend disbelief and assume the microphone is simply a floating piece of Star Wars technology. Maybe Baby Yoda is moving it around with his mind. You just don’t know.
