Yes, I know, I complain about almost every single rumor that comes out for Star Wars: Episode VII. But that’s because they’re all essentially a variation on the same rumor. And that in itself has been part of the problem.
This video, however, provoked a very different reaction from me. No I don’t care about the chance to be in the movie which is what the video is really about. What I care about is the alien that makes an appearance part way through the video.
I’m not anti-CGI the way some are. I think they can work very well both on their own and in combination with practical effects. What I’m really liking here though is a design aesthetic that clearly takes it’s cues from the original Star Wars movies.
I want to see more space chickens in my Star Wars!
