These trailers and spot look promising and the vfx seamless.


Baby Chewie? So, they scanned in that costume and de-aged the costume? :P

Ian writes for Thrillist about the practical and CG hybrid creatures/droids for the film, including Proxima and L337.

This is the kind if combination animatronic/CG stuff we've talked about here for years and it is terrific they are taking that to the next level.

And AWN's in-depth look and interview with Bredow, written by Barbara Robertson:

I love that they are doing so many vfx now pre-production and then having them to run on those LEDS during the shoot, such as for the Falcon in-cockpit hyperspace jump. That kind of interaction is awesome to read about.

This was set up by the same team that did the cloud home in Kosinski's Oblivion. Terrific stuff!
