Featurette showcases some practical effects creatures from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story


While I’ve been anticipating Rogue One: A Star Wars Story all year, I’m sort of glad that the marketing blitz for the film has been mostly concentrated into this last few weeks. Maybe I’ve just been avoiding all of the marketing hype, but it seems restrained until now–like a long stretch of low tide before a big wave rolls in.

Anyways, this new Rogue One featurette briefly showcases some of the creatures and critters in the movie, many of which were created through practical effects. Nothing like some good old-fashioned creature creation and sculpting in a workshop to make cool masks, costumes, and animatronics.

Plus, look, mon calamaris! It’s Ackbar’s people, guys.

Check out the featurette below. Rogue One is out on December 16th.
