See the Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Stunning Behind-the-Scenes Special-Effects Video

Get ready to have the veil ripped from thine eyes, because according to a video released by effects house ILMVisualFX, much of The Force Awakens is actually an artfully rendered simulacrum of arresting alien worlds and jaw-dropping technology, not a bunch of cool places and neat stuff as you had previously believed. Maybe the veil doesn’t exist either, but instead is a life-like counterfeit created by ILMVisualFX on a computer. Are your eyes even real? Next they’ll tell you all the ghosts in Ghostbusters were actually just ghost actors hired to be scary.
