Watch This VFX Breakdown of 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

See ‘Star Wars’ like never before.

By //Entertainment

Since Rogue One: A Star Wars Story captured the hearts of fans back in December 2017, we’ve been eagerly awaiting this year’s new addition: Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rogue One, the first stand-alone movie of the Star Wars franchise, is set immediately before the events of the original 1977 film and tells the story of the Rebel Alliance trying to steal the blueprints for the Empire’s dreaded Death Star.

One of the most encaptivating aspects of Rogue One was the artwork. The movie paid aesthetic heed to the original trilogy by using very familiar storybook color tones and environments — yet all rendered in stunning high-definition. The use of wide-angle shots, especially in outer space scenes, to create a sense of scale was another noticeable feature. Yet as fans, we are still so often left dumbfounded by the creation of intricate character details or the visceral fast-paced X-wing dogfights, at times it just seems too real. It’s clear in this day-and-age that technology has allowed filmmakers to render previously undreamt levels of realism with CGI — but to get an in-depth look at such a process is rare.

This full-length reel, that you can watch above, highlights a sample of the work created for over 1750 shots by a plethora of artists, scientists, and engineers around the world. You can now understand Star Wars like never before.

After watching the video above, check out the new Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer.
