While director J.J. Abrams was adamant in the use of old-school practical effects and puppets in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the blockbusterfilm still used more computer-generated effects than even Star Wars: Episode I. However, what sold fans this time around was the character animation and the photo-realistic visual effects. Check out this sample of the visual effects work that went into ‘The Force Awakens’ in this all-new ILM video.
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.
May the Force be with you…… Always!
