Star Wars: The Mandalorian Viewers Think They’ve Spotted A Gaffe In Episode Four
Fans of The Mandalorian reckon they've spotted a gaffe in the fourth episode of the Star Wars series, having noticed an unexpected visitor coming into the frame, during a scene with the titular character and a widow called Omera.
Shortly after the 16-minute mark in 'Sanctuary', when the Mandalorian himself (Pedro Pascal) is chatting to a widow on the planet Sorgan, a mysterious object comes into view towards the top of the screen - something that many viewers think could be a boom mic.
It does look like a boom mic, to be fair.
One YouTube user uploaded the clip, explaining that their wife had spotted the mistake.
Others on Twitter had also spotted it, with one tweeting: "Anyone else catch the boom mic in The Mandalorian at the top right of episode 4!?"
For those of you that enjoy watching The Mandalorian, on episode 4 at the timecode 16:37, there's a boom mic on-screen in the upper thirds. Did you see it? #TheMandalorian

Someone else quipped: "I have spoken. Into the mic. Which is in the shot..."
People were also comparing the moment to a similar, now-iconic coffee cup incident from the final season of Game of Thrones - which saw Emilia Clarke's Daenerys sitting at a table in front of a Starbucks takeaway cup.

Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon after the blunder had been spotted, Clarke revealed that Conleth Hill - the actor who plays the shiny-headed eunuch Lord Varys - admitted guilt to her while he was drunk at a glitzy showbiz bash.
She told Fallon: "We had like a party before the Emmys recently, and Conleth [Hill], who plays Varys, who's sitting next to me in that scene, he pulls me aside and he's like, 'Emilia, I've got to tell you something. I've got to tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine!'
"It was his! It was Conleth's coffee cup. He said so."
She continued: "He said he didn't want to say anything at the time because 'the heat was very much on you' and I was like, 'What?'
"So that's who I think that did it. Well he told me he did it, but then he might have been drunk."
LADbible has contacted Disney for comment regarding the alleged rogue boom mic.
The Mandalorian is available now on Disney+ for US viewers, while those in the UK will have to wait until 31 March 2020.
