Star Wars Episode VII: More Practical Effects And First Look At Stormtroopers

star_wars_7_movie_posterSo, I love Star Wars and I am hopefully optamistic about Episode VII. I am hearing numerous good things about Episode VII and my inner fanboy is screaming to be let out.

In an interview with  Girls in Hoodies, Star Wars Episode VIII director Rian Johnson stated, “They’re doing so much practical building for this one (Episode VII). It’s awesome”.

This seems to line up with the recent footage of JJ Abrams promoting the Force for Change charity where practical effects are on display. Watch the videos below:

Johnson also discussed the resurgence of practical effects, saying:

“It feels like there is sort of that gravity pulling us back toward it. I think that more and more people are hitting kind of a critical mass in terms of the CG-driven action scene lending itself to a very specific type of action scene, where physics go out the window and it becomes so big so quick.”

Now for the storm troopers. Indie Revolver has released a set of images of the newly designed stormtrooper helmets. I will provide the pictures below, while your looking, I will clean all the drool from my keyboard.

I am a huge proponent of practical effects and I love the new designs for the stormtrooper helmets.
