Star Wars: The Force Awakens Effects Reel


I actually find watching these types of effects reels a bit exhausting but this one’s Star Wars, so…here it is.

To be honest the best thing about this is that it shows how much of the film actually used CGI effects. There was a lot of press when the movie came out that focused on the fact that the movie relied on practical effects and the fact that made them “better” than the prequels. That may be partly true, but it was also a bit overstated.

At the end of the day movies rely on storytelling to succeed. The Force Awakens was no different, and it’s a better movie than the prequels because it had a better script and a better director—one who understands the fundamentals.

Great effects didn’t hurt though.
