Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is the much-anticipated sequel to Marvel’s Black Panther, and the 30th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film was directed by Ryan Coogler, who co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Robert Cole. ILM was one of the main VFX studios on the film, mainly – as you can hear in this episode, on the effects in and around Wakanda itself. ILM had previously built much of Wakanda for the first film, but this time required much more detail, detailed destruction, and complex water simulations.
In this episode we talk to Craig Hammack, ILM Senior Visual Effects Supervisor, David Seager, ILM Visual Effects Supervisor, and Matt Cowie who was ILM’s Animation Supervisor.
