When Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened last Christmas, it reminded us of the magic from the original trilogy that was lost in the prequels. Fans and newcomers alike were mesmerised by outstanding visuals which boasted a mixed use of practical and visual effects.
The company responsible for the visual effects Industrial Light & Magic just released a breakdown on the visual work that went behind the making of The Force Awakens.
If you haven’t heard of ILM, they are a VFX and animation studio under Lucasfilm, responsible for the visuals in many films and shows including Marvel’s Avengers and Captain America: Civil War, Jurassic World, The Martian and Star Trek, just to name a few.
ILM will also be working on the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which opens this December.
