Behind the Magic: The Visual Effects of Star Wars: The Force Awakens [Video]


ILM has just released a highlight reel that breaks down the visual effects that went into creating Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so if you love to look behind to curtain, this one's for you!

From ILM's YouTube channel:

We are pleased to share a sample of the visual effects work created for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The history of ILM leads all the way back to 1975 and origins of Star Wars and The Force Awakens gave us the opportunity to once again push the boundaries of what is possible in character animation and visual effects while combining cutting edge practical effects and physical sets. ILM studios in San Francisco, Singapore, Vancouver and London each contributed to the film effects as did our partners Hybride, Base FX and Virtuos.

    Okay … that was just waaaaaayyy too cool! 🙂

    I know there are people out there who do not want to see any “behind the scenes” footage — because they feel it will diminish the magic of a movie in their eyes. I can understand that. As far as I’m concerned, however, it only enhances the magic. Movie magic is what it’s all about — from whatever camp one is in. 🙂

    MTFBWY 🙂
