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.”

Hulkules187 proceeded to show his spouse’s discovery in the video, pointing out that the boom mic makes an appearance and can be seen moving if seen closely.

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

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.
