RIP “Jeans Guy” — Errant ‘Mandalorian’ crew member is deleted

(LOS ANGELES) — Gone, but not forgotten. That’s the fate of “Jeans Guy,” the name fans had given to a crew member who accidentally appeared in a frame of a recent episode of the Disney+ series, The Mandalorian: as we expected, he has been digitally deleted.

The crew member appeared in the background of a shootout between director/co-star Carl Weathers’ episode of the series, “The Siege,” and spawned immediate fandom in the form of mock action figures and potential cosplay.

Alas, he’s no more — at least officially. As of this weekend, he no longer appears in the show, thanks to some digital wizardry from the folks at Lucasfilm. 

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
