Visual effects breakdown for The Force Awakens

posted by Jason Kottke   Jan 14, 2016

A look at how some of the most arresting visual effects were done in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The filmmakers used many real sets and models (i.e. practical effects), but there were also 2100 shots in the movie with digital effects.

Update: The original video was removed, but I replaced it with one that’s a bit better.

Update: Here’s how the visual effects on the Millennium Falcon’s escape from Jakku scene were done.

Update: ILM released their official look at the visual effects.
