Earlier today we posted a video from ILM that showed some of the VFX magic the team used to create the opening bombing run sequence, and now we have another behind-the-scenes look at the studio’s work on The Last Jedi. This new clip, which like the first are meant to bolster support for ILM’s Oscar nomination for The Last Jedi, so it shows off some of their more impressive accomplishments.
In this clip we can see how the massive hangar set was brought to life, which was featured in many scenes, as well as being the set where the parts of the film’s climax were shot. It’s insane to see how much of the set was cooked up on a computer, versus how much of it was real. I guess that’s why these guys and girls get nominated for awards, because their finished work tends to look more lifelike than digital. Head on up above to see ILM’s wizardry in action!
