Given the visual effects nod from the Oscars and yesterday’s leak of the VFX reel, it’s not so surprising that The Force Awakens effects talk is all over today.
At MTV, we learn that the film’s really most talked-about effect – Rey’s green instant bread – is practical. It does, however, taste terrible. They also look into BB-8’s thumbs-up. (It might be time to release an official GIF of that one.) Neal Scalan talked about how Rogue One’s approach to aliens will be different. Also: Easter eggs!
/Film has an interview with Visual Effects Supervisor Roger Guyett, including the tidbit that The Force Awakens had more CG than The Phantom Menace, and more about how and why Kylo Ren’s helmet was added digitally.
Over at Collider, Scanlan, Guyett, Chris Corbould and Patrick Tubach talk about some of The Force Awakens’ cut scenes, including one with Maz.

I knew that bread was practical, I just couldn’t figure out how they did it! Dammit, they can’t tell us the bread effect was real and then not say what’s in it! I don’t care if it tastes terrible, I want to try it.
Oh, I’m sure there will be a feature on the (inevitable) Blu-ray documentary.
I’m thinking they need to bring it to Celebration to do it on stage, and have random audience members get to taste it.
