Artist Todd Vaziri explains how the team arrived at the Blockade Runner engine look for 'Rogue One'.
Today our guest writer is Todd Vaziri, Lead Artist at ILM who chronicles how the Blockade Runner engine shot from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story went from idea to reality:
I was thrilled to get to work on this shot with my friend and frequent collaborator, ILM lighter Tom Martinek. (Leia’s Blockade Runner escapes, tying Rogue One directly to the start of Star Wars (1977)?
Our first task was to study those first fleeting glimpses of the Tantive IV from the original Star Wars. Replicating the engine look of the engines *precisely* from the first film would not work for our movie.
