Starbucks Cup 2.0: See the ‘Thrones’-Level Blunder in the Latest 'Mandalorian' Episode

December 3, 2019

No one is safe from bloopers, not even Disney+’s latest masterpiece, “The Mandalorian.”

The series had what social media is referring to as a “Game of Thrones” moment.
No, a Starbucks cup wasn’t involved this time, but the gaffe is comparable.

The moment in question happened at around the 16-minute mark of the fourth episode titled “The Sanctuary,” which debuted on the streaming service last Friday, November 29.

Hawk-eyed viewers in the U.S noticed the major blooper during a conversation between The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) and Omera (Julia Jones), a widow on the planet Sorgan.

As the two characters chat, an object that has been now identified as a boom mic peeks out ever so slightly from the top of the screen.

It could have been a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-moment (and you probably needed to turn your brightness up to catch it) if not for the fact that fans now search for innocent blunders following “GOT’s” infamous Starbucks cup fiasco.

The coffee cup became a hot topic on social media after it was spotted directly in front of Daenerys Targaryen also in episode four. Could it be a coincidence?

“The Mandalorian” blunder isn’t as noticeable as the ill-placed Starbucks cup in Westeros, but it’s there nonetheless.

Maybe the writers and director Bryce Dallas Howard – whose father is the legendary Ron Howard, the man behind the Hans Solo prequel, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” – can chalk it up to Baby Yoda’s floating crib? Or a tiny space station? Or a wicked time traveler?
