Yesterday's episode of The Mandalorian, "The Siege," was terrific, but eagle-eyed fans have spotted a crew member in the background of one of the action scenes. Find out what happened after the jump...

Making his directorial debut in a Galaxy Far, Far Away with "The Siege,", Carl Weathers proved he's a perfect fit for The Mandalorian both behind and in front of the camera. 

However, a funny mistake has been spotted in the episode around the 18:54 mark. 

As you can see below in a Tweet shared by Weathers, a crew member wearing jeans and a watch can be seen standing almost out of frame as Din Djarin, Cara Dune, and Greef Karga blast their way through the Imperial base. It's an easy mistake to make, but one it is surprising wasn't caught during post-production (he could have very easily been removed with visual effects). 

It's hardly a reflection of Weathers as a director, though, and we're definitely hoping he returns to helm another episode soon; you can read our spoiler-free verdict of "The Siege" by clicking here

The Mandalorian is definitely picking up the pace this year, and with trailers and TV spots only showing footage from the first four episodes, everything that comes next is going to be a surprise to us. That's exciting for a lot of reasons, especially as we know that Ahsoka Tano is coming to the Disney+ series.

Check out Weathers' reaction to this blunder below:

It would be nice if the ongoing backstory (getting the child where he belongs) became a bit more prominent sooner rather than later. The constant side jobs and diversions and mini missions as a favor to getting a bit taxing. The first season was full of that stuff. No need to saddle the second season with this pacing as well.

Whatever Moff Gideon is up to seems far more intriguing than yet another interlude on some planet to get the Razorcrest fixed for the billionth time only to be sidetracked by someone who needs Mando to do them a solid.

Let get on with it!

@PerrinNation1 - while I Agree, I think the pacing they're going for with this series is akin to Samurai Jack. Inching, crawling towards a conclusion at a snail's pace, but offering up fun adventures. The problem is the mystery surrounding the Child is too great and too interesting that we want immediate answers. Samurai Jacks return to the past? Less so. I imagine this procedural style pacing will be customary for the time being

@PerrinNation1 - I see it as the reverse, myself... getting the child to the Jedi is the side quest, while anything Moff Gideon related is the real story... and the last two episodes have had more Gideon stuff.

Lol, considering Star Wars' history of editing out flaws from older projects I feel like this'll be gone by Friday
Imfunnyhow - 11/21/2020, 4:04 PM
@tmp3 - This error was mentioned on Star Wars Theory durning the watch party. Riiiise.

That's inexcusable for a student film. That right there should be a fireable offense.
JustALurker - 11/21/2020, 4:59 AM
@inkniron - or they can pay an editor remove him with content aware fill and reupload the episode.

@JustALurker - Didn’t HBO do the same thing for later broadcasts and on-demand versions of the GOT scene with the Starbucks cup?
inkniron - 11/21/2020, 6:18 AM
@JustALurker - That's fine as long as it's not the same negligent idiot that let that happen the first go around.

@inkniron - Or just tell the person they need to be more careful and move on. There, just saved 100 hours and some money by not having to go through termination, recruiting, hiring, and new training. Plus, the crew will like their jobs mor rather than less.
inkniron - 11/21/2020, 7:45 AM
@Rosraf - Screw that. Can't be afraid to pull the trigger when someone drops the ball that bad. It was either purely lazy or just poor work.
I'm not a believer in rewarding shoddy craftsmanship. I'm sure that LucasFilms has a long line of highly qualified individuals that would love those jobs. And to be clear, I'm sure there is more than one person that needs the axe for this.

@inkniron - That’s very extreme and it’s bound to happen. Human error is a constant with any art.

Should the same be said about The Gladiator when it comes from veteran filmmakers, but it has many mistakes similar to this?

No one and nothing is perfect.
inkniron - 11/21/2020, 9:52 AM
@DTor91 - Not at all extreme. With millions of dollars invested in these projects, you may not be able to tell in advance if it is going to be well received, but at the very least the technical side should be flawless. It's not like they had to crank these things out over the weekend at the last minute.

Lol knowing the SW fanbase that guy will have his own wookiepedia page and backstory by the end of the week
IronGenesis - 11/21/2020, 4:44 AM
@Nightwing1015 - 😂. Exactly!

Didn't notice that but it's kinda cool.

@SuperCat - Yup, quite spooky looking.

Imagine having Kevin feige or John favreau type of Hollywood clout lol

Everytime I watch the mando credits I think John must be like a God to Disney
