Fans were buzzing following the release of The Mandalorian's Chapter 21 as it featured the live-action debut of Garazeb Orrelios, a main fixture in the Star Wars Rebels series. What most fans might have missed, however, is that Episode 5 was also home to multiple cameo appearances only eagle-eyed fans were able to spot.
Titled "The Pirate", Chapter 21 pretty much revolves around the Mandalore tribe's road to redemption as they're no longer lurking in the shadows. After aiding Nevarro which was under siege by Pirate King Gorian Shard, the covert was officially welcomed to the planet ruled by Greef Karga and that's all thanks to a promise he made to Din Djarin.
Earlier in the episode, Greef sought out the help of Captain Teva who also vowed to aid the High Magistrate should he need it. In fact, before the Mandalorians entered the fray, Karga actually asked for the New Republic's backup to fend off Shard and his minions.
The scene where Teva receives a transmission from Nevarro had fans rejoicing after Zeb emerged from out of nowhere. However, what many may have missed is the cameo appearances of Dave Filoni, Deborah Chow, and Rick Famuyiwa who were all spotted casually chatting in the background.
If you needed further proof that it was actually them, the three directors were actually credited in Chapter 21's end crawl, as well as actor Steve Blum who returned to voice Zeb in the episode
