The Mandalorian digitally erases Jeans Guy from Chapter 12
Jeans Guy isn't going to become Star Wars canon after all.
Disney+'s blockbuster The Mandalorian has fixed a rare goof that went viral last week – an anonymous crew member who was just barely seen in a shot from Chapter 12, "The Seige."
Here's the shot before the fix (oval added) from a scene where Greef Karga (Carl Weathers, who also directed the episode), Cara Dune (Gina Carano), and the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) get into a shootout:
And now, he's vanished:
Jeans Guy (a.k.a. T-Shirt Guy a.k.a. Admiral Blue Jeans) stepped into the camera's line-of-sight and into our hearts after being quickly spotted by fans after the episode debuted on Nov. 20, spawning jokes like this one:
EW pointed out the eerie similarity to another Jeans Guy crewmember who wandered into the left side frame on another George Lucas-related production from decades before, during this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark:
The goof also led to comparisons to the infamous Game of Thrones season 8 coffee cup error, though HBO fixed that one a bit quicker (within a few days), whereas it took Disney about a week jettison Jeans Guy. Anonymous crew members being left in scenes, apparently, is not the way.
