A featurette has been posted for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Check it out below. It gives us a look at the creation of the crystal foxes seen in the film’s trailers, aka the Vulptex.
The video shows that they used over 25,000 crystals to make the animatronic version of the Vulptex. We get a look at some of the puppetry also. In the film, they will be a mix of animatronic and CGI it appears.
Having taken her first steps into the Jedi world, Rey joins Luke Skywalker on an adventure with Leia, Finn, and Poe that unlocks mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past.
