Rogue One Delivers a “Creature Featurette” Showing Off the Latest Of the Empire’s Amazing Aliens
After the CG-heavy prequel trilogy, the folks behind the Star Wars franchise these days seem to want to get back to basics and get more hands-on with their sets and costumes. In The Force Awakens, director J.J. Abrams and his crew utilized a seamless blend of practical effects and CG effects to make the world of the film feel real. Now, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, director Gareth Edwards and his team have created even more practical creatures to get to know, and they look amazing.
In the video above, Rogue One‘s Creature Effects Supervisor Neal Scanlon talks about the thrill of being able to develop new techniques for the film that allowed the creatures to be as real and as “Star Wars” as possible. As a result, the cast was amazed with the level of detail and the emotional range of which these new creatures were capable. As Alan Tudyk, the voice of K-2SO says, “The creatures are amazing. Their eyes blink and move, and their lips have very subtle expression.”
