It’s the start to a happy Emmys season for fans of The Mandalorian! The hit Disney+ series has a whopping 15 Emmy nominations this year and already garnered its first wins during the Creative Arts ceremony on Wednesday night.
The Mandalorian took home the coveted trophies for production design, cinematography, special visual effects, sound editing, and sound mixing last night. These five wins put The Mandalorian in the lead for most awards from voters this year.
The first live-action Star Wars series became an instant sensation last November partially due to its adorable character, The Child, who is affectionately known as Baby Yoda.
