rots01

/FILM : “Let’s talk about the visual effects, something that you’ve been involved with for awhile. How many visual effects are there in Rogue One, and how does that compare to the other Star Wars movies?”

John Knoll :  “It’s about 1,700. The original A New Hope was about 360. Empire Strikes Back was about 700. Return of the Jedi was about 900 or 950. Episode I was 1,900-something, 1950, I think. Episode II was 2,200. Episode III was 2,400. Episode VII was, I think just under 2,000. So we’re kind of in the middle.”
