When the digital animation and visual effects are as good as they are in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it’s easy to forget how many people worked diligently behind the scenes of every second of the movie to make it look as good, as seamless and immersive, as possible. This VFX reel from Framestore shows just a hint of the very cool and slightly creepy work that goes into bringing Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot to life on screen.
Written and directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sees the return of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Sean Gunn as Kraglin and Karen Gillan as Nebula, with newcomer Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Kurt Russell as Ego the Living Planet, Chris Sullivan as Taserface and Sylvester Stallone as a Nova Corps member.
