While we were distracted waiting for and watching Chapter 13, Lucasfilm pulled a fast one and corrected the “Jeans Guy” shot that many a meme was made about in the episode directed by and co-starring Carl Weathers. In the midst of Din Djarin, Carasynthia Dune, and Greef Karga’s big assault on an Imperial outpost on Nevarro, a crew member can be seen standing in the background of a shot where a doorway covers his face, but leaves his arms and legs exposed to the camera. Our nameless onlooker is wearing pretty pedestrian clothing unfit for the galaxy far, far away, making it clear that he wasn’t meant to be in the shot. Lucasfilm didn’t catch this mistake before the episode’s debut a week ago, but now they’ve opted to fix it by digitally removing the man from the shot with the power of CGI. Check out a before and after comparison of the scene below:

Jeans Guy’s time with us was short, but not unmemorable. With only a week of screentime, the character that never was has endeared himself to the viewers of The Mandalorian that noticed him and the Star Wars fandom at large. Here are a couple of favorite gags that popped up in the past week:
BREAKING: Action figure availability for "Jeans Guy" was weeks BEFORE his featured episode of The Mandalorian.

And lastly, we’ll always have this short-lived joke article on Wookieepedia:
The Mandalorian is streaming exclusively on Disney+, with the first season completed and a second season in progress. A third season is currently being written by Jon Favreau and is in pre-production for a hopeful 2021 release window, while actor Giancarlo Esposito has indicated that there are plans for at least four seasons.
