Since its premiere last Friday, some eagle-eyed fans have noticed a mistake in the latest cut of Disney+‘s exclusive live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.

Nearly halfway through the episode, Chapter 4: The Sanctuary, the show’s main character, Dyn Jarren, or “The Mandalorian” (portrayed by Pedro Pascal), is seen talking with a new character, Omera (Julia Jones), when a small portion of a boom microphone creeps its way into the scene.

Though the discreet piece of audio equipment is present in the Disney/Lucasfilm project, for the most part, it is shrouded by the surrounding darkness of the shot; making it only clearly visible with extremely high television brightness settings.

The error was seemingly discovered by YouTube user Hulkules187’s wife, according to a video he posted to the popular streaming website on Friday, Nov. 29.

“I just found something in Chapter 4 of The Mandalorian,” said the user. “It’s in this episode [and] I had no idea. My wife pointed it out.”

He continued: “I was like, ‘What the f–k, it is in there there.’ So check out at 16:37… around that area.”

“That’s a f–king boom mic, bro,” he said. “Right f–king there. Right?”

Other Star Wars fans and Disney+ subscribers soon began reporting their own findings of the scene on social media.

The comedic error quickly went viral and drew in some comparisons to a disposable coffee cup which was discovered to have been left in a Game of Thrones scene earlier this year.
