'The Mandalorian' Fans Appear to Spot Errant Boom Mic in Episode 4 of Disney Plus Show

The Mandalorian fans have appeared to spot an errant boom microphone in the last episode of the hit Star Wars series on Disney+, prompting comparisons to Game of Thrones' infamous coffee cup blunder.

Twitter users believe they saw the recording equipment briefly appearing at the top of their screens in last week's episode (Chapter 4: Sanctuary) in a scene featuring the titular Mandalorian—played by Pedro Pascal—and a villager named Omera (Julia Jones).

It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment but fans seized on the apparent error.

"Anyone else catch the boom mic in The Mandalorian at the top right of episode 4!?" wrote Twitter user Angel Amaral.

Another person wrote: "I can't believe people are comparing the boom mic in The Mandalorian to the GoT coffee cup ... Boom mics in shots happen all the time, even in mainstream films, and at least it was an actual piece of filming equipment that belonged there in the first place???"

The episode of The Mandalorian in question was directed by actor Bryce Dallas Howard, best known for the Jurassic World movies. She is also the daughter of acclaimed director Ron Howard.

Neither Howard nor Disney+ has publicly addressed the errant boom microphone. Disney+ could not immediately be reached for comment.

The Mandalorian's boom mic blunder is reminiscent of the takeout coffee cup that noticeably appeared in a scene in Game of Thrones' final season earlier this year. The modern coffee cup was instantly recognizable because GoT is set in the fictional world of medieval Westeros.

The coffee cup, which resembled a Starbucks takekout cup, appeared in Season 8, Episode 4 of Thrones and in a scene featuring Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen and Kit Harington's Jon Snow.

HBO scrubbed the coffee cup digitally from replays of the episode and on its video-on-demand services.

In a tongue-in-cheek statement, the official Game of Thrones Twitter account said at the time: "The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. #Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."

Clarke was implicated as the owner of the coffee cup, but in an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show in October, she claimed it in fact belonged to Conleth Hill, the actor who played Varys in the series.

"We had like a party before the Emmys recently, and Conleth [Hill], who plays Varys, who's sitting next to me in that scene, he pulls me aside and he's like, 'Emilia, I've got to tell you something. I've got to tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine!' It was his. It was Conleth's coffee cup. He said so," said Clarke.

Clarke added: "He's like, 'I think so, I'm sorry darling, I didn't want to say anything because it seemed [like] the heat was very much on you. And I was like, 'What?!'"
