Season 2 special effects from the Star Wars team

from Matthias Brückle
The budget for the special effects of the second season of The Witcher seems to be significantly higher, because the legendary studio Industrial Light & Magic joins the production. ILM has existed since 1975 and is best known for the Star Wars films.

Industrial Light & Magic – ILM for short – is one of the legendary names when it comes to special effects in films. Because the studio founded by George Lucas in 1975 has in its history won a lot of Oscars and add fantastic effects to films such as Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator and Pirates of the Caribbean. According to the Witcher news page The second season of The Witcher will be allowed to line up next to these blockbuster films: The effect experts from ILM will join the production of the Netflix series. Her recent projects include Star Wars: The Mandalorian, Disney's Aladdin and Avengers: Endgame.

Another addition to season 2 of The Witcher

Also added is the studio The Third Floor, whose area of ​​responsibility up to now was primarily so-called "pre-visualization". This means designing and creating scenes before someone else implements these ideas. The talented minds from The Third Floor recently worked on Star Wars: Rogue One, Mowgli and Spider-Man: Far from Home.

Better effect in the new episodes of The Witcher?

The effects of the first season of The Witcher weren't always glory. The audience voices on the design of the different monsters ranged from "impressive" to "cheap". The addition of ILM suggests that the budget of the new episodes is significantly higher than that of the first season.

ILM as a supplement or replacement

It is not yet clear whether ILM will replace other studios such as the previous Framestore and Nviz, which have previously worked on The Witcher. It is also possible that the number of special effect crews is now larger. The teams from Platige Image, Cinesite, One of Us and Clear Angle Studio, who were also part of season 1, are back again.
