Hey All!

In celebration of the release of the new BluRay for the amazing movie OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, I had the amazing opportunity to interview Joey King (“China Girl”),  Scott Stokdyk (VFX Supervisor), and Michael Kimmel (Supervising Animator) & Carolyn Vail (Senior Animator) as they will be appearing in some amazing special features on the BluRay.

You will find China Girl And The Suspension Of Disbelief to be a very interesting feature to watch when you get your copy on June 11th! This expose uncloaks the several forms of movie magic employed to bring China Girl to life, from the initial artwork and character design, to the on-set puppeteering during filmmaking, and finally, through each stage of the visual-effects process; and includes an interview with the voice of China Girl, Joey King.


They had some very interesting things to share about the process for visual effects and how they brought the characters and world of Oz to life.
