If you've listened to any of the 144 other episodes of But Why Tho? the podcast, then you know we always mention special effects when talking about a long-lasting and impactful film or franchise. After realizing just how many times Industrial Light & Magic has come up, we decided the iconic special effects house created by George Lucas was worthy of its own episode. Here, we discuss the history of the visual effects house, its iconic set pieces, films, and how it continues to revolutionize the industry with the new technology used in The Mandalorian.
