ILM Bombing Run Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi may not have pleased the series’ entire fanbase, but one thing can’t be denied, the amazing visual effects by Industrial Light and Magic. The team has released two new behind the scenes videos documenting what went into creating the scenes, like the opening bombing run. The opening battle shows Resistance starfighters battling a First Order fleet, and director Rian Johnson combined practical hanger sets as well as an A-Wing fighter with larger digital sets and spaceships in the scene, and then layered in explosions effects.

“The second short clip shows off the creation of a First Order hanger that the Finn and Rose are led into towards the end of the film. It’s a bit less action-packed, but it does reveal the level of detail that goes into such a shot. A handful of actors acted in front of a green screen, in which animators created the massive hanger, layering in various elements such as equipment, vehicles, and troopers,” reports The Verge.
