ILM Releases New VFX Videos Showing Snoke CGI Work and Battle of Crait

ILM is continuing to release behind-the-scenes snippets for Star Wars: The Last Jedi to remind everyone that the studio’s work is nominated for an Oscar. The two new clips today feature a look behind the curtain at how they brought Supreme Leader Snoke to life in the flesh, as well as the Battle of Crait.

The Snoke video is my favorite out of the two, because I love to see Andy Serkis work. This guy is the premiere CGI character actor in all the galaxy, so getting to see him work with all of the headgear on for tracking is pretty rad. Especially when they transition shots of Serkis in his tracking gear to the finished shot of Snoke in The Last Jedi. The Battle of Crait video is great too, but it’s more about how much computer work they needed to flesh it out, over seeing an actor get turned into a full-on digital characters. You can check out both videos below.
