Creature Designer Neal Scanlan Talks Rogue One
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's creature designer Neal Scanlan was interviewed by MTV and spilled some news on what to expect from alien lifeforms in the upcoming movie. Here's what he had to say.
“In the world of 'Force Awakens,' there was a real mixture of all different kinds, very much like the original Cantina sequence. Working with Gareth now on 'Rogue One,' he sees these aliens as being much more part of the human [world]. They co-habitate, they work together and so it’s pushed us very much to create characters that are more realistic. They move more realistically, they’re able to emote more than maybe the characters that we did for 'The Force Awakens.' So they’re a closer part of the storytelling. They’re less of the world, and they’re more of this group who have a mission, and play a part in that.”
