ILM Shares New WANDAVISION Visual Effects Breakdown To Mark The Disney+ Series' One Year Anniversary

Industrial Light & Magic has shared a new look at how one of Wandavision's climactic scenes was brought to life by means of visual effects. Check it out...

The first episode of the live-action Disney+ series Wandavision debuted exactly one year ago today. The series took place directly after the events of Avengers: Endgame and saw Wanda fabricate a reality based on classic sitcoms where she could live a happy life with Vision. Naturally, it didn't last.

The final episode of Wandavision saw Wanda's false world deteriorate along with her synthetic husband. It's this scene in particular that Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) has shared a visual effects breakdown of to commemorate the one year anniversary of the show. ILM pulls the curtain back and provides us with a new look at how this pivotal, climactic scene was brought to life.

It appears that actors Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany filmed the scene in front of a green screen as the camera circled them. The interior and exterior of the house were added in post-production by ILM through the process known as compositing (which is to say they combined multiple shots into one).

The visual effects studio also added the final touches to Vision's appearance, as Bettany was simply painted maroon when they filmed the scene. Rather hilariously, the point at which Vision is supposed to disintegrate, Bettany simply steps out of frame. Additionally, and arguably most impressively, ILM added the stunning and colourful particle effects as Wanda's illusion dissipates.
