Every so often in film and TV there are accidental real-world Easter Eggs. It's happened to the best of them, from the Harry Potter films to Gladiator, from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl to The Matrix. So many great films in the editing process don't notice an unfortunate case of a crew member or camera being visible, and that's what happened with Disney's The Mandalorian.
You may have seen the images that littered the internet the past week where you can clearly see a crew member in jeans in a shot of the action series. As the protagonists of our story run through an enemy base and turn a corner, in the background you see a leg of someone part of the crew. In the final cut of the show, it's pretty dark so it's not immediately noticeable. Lightening the image, however, reveals the figure clearly.

Now, according to Digital Spy, Disney has fixed this accidental fourth wall break, through the power of editing magic. They've used special effects to remove the crew member from the shot and maintain Star Wars' otherworldly feeling. No more will this man be present in the show, no more will we ponder if jeans are canon - our existences have been denied this staple of sci-fi speculation. Instead, we just have to go back to wondering what Kylo Ren's pyjamas look like, and if Baby Yoda will ever consider piercings to adorn his beautiful ears.
If you're interested in watching The Mandalorian series yourself, it's worth noting that Xbox Game Pass is teaming up with Disney + this holiday period. If it's your first time purchasing Xbox Game Pass Ulitmate, you'll get a free 30-day trial of Disney + which is a pretty good deal. You can rad more about it here.
