Votd Vfx Breakdown Of Rise Of Skywalker

Over a month after the film’s release, a visual effects reel for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” has been released by Industrial Light and Magic which goes into some of those lovely money shots in the movie.

From the more obvious CG resurrections and or recreations of Skywalkers old and new, to more subtle wire removal, digital alteration, blue and green screen replacement, some practical effects, and full CG animated segments. There were some complicated elements in play here with blending of CG and real elements trying to be as seamless as possible.

The J.J. Abrams-directed epic conclusion has already earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office and has recently received three Oscar nominations including Best Original Score, Best Visual Effects and Best Sound Editing.
