Next up, the visual effects company Iloura posted a visual effects breakdown showing off the work they put into the smash box office hit Jumanji: Welcome the Jungle. Their work included created the rhinos and the stampede through the valley and the helicopter sequence in the middle of it. However, they also created digital doubles of Dwayne Johnson and Karen Gillan for stunts that they couldn’t do themselves for one reason or another.
