Join The Movie Defenders podcast as they interview two folks from Industrial Light and Magic who brought you The Rise of Skywalker! In a show you won't hear anywhere else, Scott and Donald talk to Alexis Borchardt and Alex Helman from ILM with some help of GM Hooly from The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast! We go through all the magic and behind the scenes stuff that made the movie come to life. Before that we tackle the news that The Clone Wars has a release date, we review the Quiet Place 2 trailer, New Mutants appears on track, and the fact Netflix is now one of the biggest production houses in the world. Then we tell stories about our first Star Wars memories along with reading many first Star Wars memories from you, our listeners! Then we find out how The Rise of Skywalker was made by talking right with folks who made it happen. Find out about the magic behind all your favorite TRoS moments as we talk to ILM! Does Disney meddle in their productions? How was that epic lightsaber fight on the Death Star ruins made? Just how many ships were in the epic end battle? And how much practical effects really are in a J.J. Abrams Star Wars movie? Find out this and much, much more on this episode of The Movie Defenders podcast!
