The Mandalorian's Jeans Guy Has Been Removed From Disney+

The crew member could be spotted in the background of the Star Wars show for one week only.


While much of the discussion of the latest season of The Mandalorian has centered on the live-action debut of animated Star Wars characters or Baby Yoda's food, there has also been focus on Jeans Guy. This is the name that fans have given to a casually dressed crew member who was spotted briefly in the background of last week's episode. Sadly, this mistake has now been edited from the episode.

Jeans Guy--whose real identity is unknown--could originally be seen in Episode 4 of The Mandalorian Season 2, standing partially obscured while Mando, Cara, and Greef blast their way through the Imperial base on Nevarro. However, viewers have now spotted that he's been digitally removed from the episode on Disney+. Jeans Guy will now sadly only live on in our memories (plus thousands of screenshots on the internet):

While Jeans Guy is no longer part of Star Wars canon, he has inevitably inspired a variety of memes and jokes online, including a fake action figure and a T-shirt.

Prior to this gaffe, the biggest recent TV mistake was the notorious coffee cup that appeared on a table in the final season of Game of Thrones. Last month, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss spoke about the moment they realised that the cup hadn't been spotted during production or post-production. As with The Mandalorian's rogue crew member, the cup was digitally removed by HBO for subsequent digital and home entertainment versions of the episode.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 5 hit Disney+ last week. Check out GameSpot's guide to all the references and Easter Eggs we spotted in the episode. And in related news, an episode of the never-screened animated Star Wars show Detours has leaked online.
