Ok this video has already been removed twice from YouTube, so clearly Disney is not quite ready for you to see this, but luckily we have a mirror on Vimeo that is currently working. For that, we are very grateful. In this video you can see some of the most memorable scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens before and after VFX was applied to the scenes. Though JJ Abrams was very adamant about using practical effects where possible, there is still quite a lot going on in post production here.

What I enjoy is that in some scenes, a lot of background information was added in post…

Make sure you check this video out before we lose it again. This is a fascinating look into the production of what is becoming the biggest movie of all time.
