Disney could have hardly wished for a more impeccable start to its first-party streaming business. Its new on-demand video platform, Disney Plus (sometimes stylized as Disney+), debuted in late 2019 with a portfolio lead by a new original series called “The Mandalorian.” That show, whose second season is now mere days away from releasing, outperformed pretty much all expectations from both critics and U.S. audiences alike. The latest milestone in its triumphant run is an absolutely dominant display at this year’s Emmy Awards, of which it took home no fewer than seven. Its Emmy 2020 honors included the award for best short-form cinematography, outstanding production design across sitcom-sized narrative programming, sound editing, audio mixing, and – what else than – special visual effects. The ones we are missing celebrate the show’s stunt coordination and music composition. Further adding to the haul is the fact that Lucasfilm and Disney+ racked up another 8 nominations with The Mandalorian, for a total of 15. Another related property, animated series Star Wars Resistance, was also nominated in the Outstanding Children’s Program category, which happens to be its second such acknowledgement in just over 12 months. As for The Mandalorian, the second season of the show will be returning to Disney+ on the 30th of October.
