The Mandalorian has made the boring move to edit out a hilarious recent mistake that saw a crew member appear in the background of a scene.
Nothing gets by Star Wars fans. Eagle-eyed viewers were unbelievably quick to notice the appearance and then disappearance of a crew member in season two’s fourth episode.
The unknown superstar briefly showed up in the corner of a scene behind Greef Karga, Cara Dune, and Mando as they attempted to infiltrate an old imperial base.
As per CNET, it was revealed earlier t0day, December 1st, that Disney had digitally removed the unplanned mistake from the episode. The bumbling gaffe has been edited out a week after the episode it appeared in – ‘Chapter 12: The Siege’ – first aired on November 20th.

Fans immediately warmed to him, unsurprising for a franchise that has always valued the underdogs. The crew member affectionately became known as “Jeans Guy” based on his plain fashion style that could be glimpsed in the background.

The legend has been sadly banished though, like that iconic coffee cup from the final season of Game of Thrones. Fans took to social media to mourn the loss of perhaps the greatest Star Wars character since Baby Yoda.
Could it follow the example of Game of Thrones and double up on gaffes? Could it go one further and achieve an embarrassing three-peat? As long as we get a “Jeans Guy” action figurine in time for Christmas, any future mistakes will be forgiven.
Coming soon (*Not really*)

It was all-too-brief and obviously an accident but the internet didn’t let the crew member’s moment in the limelight die out too soon. The internet won’t forget. The internet never forgets.
