Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

We may never learn what Bill Murray whispered in Scarlett Johansson’s ear in Lost in Translation, but we at least will know what Carrie Fisher whispered in Daisy Ridley‘s ear during their emotional hug scene in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. And considering the fact that this scene was filmed during the production of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, thus making it one of Fisher’s last scenes to be put to film, you might expect something profound or deep. Not at all, according to Ridley. But it was something pure Carrie.

VFX Artists React

There are times when you look at visual effects in a movie and you just know that they don’t look good. However, it can be hard to specifically explain why certain visual effects don’t look good when you don’t know the many tools, terms and work that goes into creating them. That’s where Corridor Crew‘s recent series of videos comes into play.

In a series of videos, a group of VFX artists react to various shots with visual effects of varying quality. In their latest video, they laugh at the poorly created presidential plane from the ending of Air Force One, stare in awe of an incredibly composed mirror shot in Contact, laugh at a missing frame of visual effects in X-Men: Apocalypse, break down a Star Wars: The Force Awakens sequence, and explain plenty of details about all of these scenes and more.

Not to open up a can of worms, but one of the major complaints regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the way the film handled Luke Skywalker’s story arc. Several fans were outraged that Luke would be hiding out on an island, ignoring his friends. The blame fell squarely on Rian Johnson, with many accusing him of not understanding Luke as a character. But here’s a twist: newly surfaced concept art created before both The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens proves that this was the direction Luke’s story was heading all along. In fact, it might have even had a darker twist.  Read More »

Luke Skywalker remained out of sight, but never out of mind, through much of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Then he appeared as a bearded Mark Hamill in the final few seconds of the film. But we almost saw a glimpse of Luke earlier in the film, through the tumultuous vision that Rey receives when she picks up Luke’s long lost lightsaber. The twist: he wouldn’t have been played by Hamill but by actor Robert Boulter, in a re-enactment of the famous The Empire Strikes Back duel.

And now, we know what he would’ve looked like.
