In a previous article about visual effects, we informed you that Industrial Light & Magic and The Third Floor have joined the work on the second season. ILM has been in the news lately since they helped Disney’s The Mandalorian create their virtual LED sets, a technical breakthrough that will have a big future in the film and TV industry. However, it turns out this is not the end of news on the topic. As we found out, other well known studios are also working on visual effects for season two.
The first new studio we found is the award-winning Rodeo FX that has been operating in the industry since 2007. Over the past few years they have worked on many huge and very well known productions such as Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, Fantastic Beasts and Deadpool.
The second new studio is the Canadian studio Mr. X. Their most recent credits are Vikings, Carnival Row and Cursed. In addition, there are many very strong indications that Nviz, who worked in the first season, will also return to work in the second season.
This means that the studios that are working on the visual effects of season two are the following: Industrial Light & Magic, Rodeo FX, Cinesite, One of Us, Platige Image, Mr. X, The Third Floor, Clear Angle Studio, Nviz.
Does increasing the number of studios mean that we will see more effects in the second season or will things get more spectacular and polished? Or maybe both? The only thing left now is waiting for the final product. Whenever the first trailer airs, we will know more.
