What We Learned from Walt Disney Family Museum's Discussion with Visual Effects Legend …

Multiple Oscar-winning visual effects artist Dennis Muren made a name for himself at Lucasfilm’s in-house VFX department Industrial Light & Magic during its glory days. He made noteworthy contributions to the groundbreaking effects across the entire original Star Wars trilogy, plus Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Jurassic Park. In the late 1990s he returned to Star Wars for George Lucas’s prequel trilogy and also brought the franchise to life at Disney Parks by supervising visual effects work on the original Star Tours.
Last night Dennis Muren sat down for a remote conversation with representatives from The Walt Disney Family Museum as part of its “WDFM Happily Ever After Hours” program of live-streamed talks during the pandemic.

In the bullet-point list below, I’ve selected some of the more interesting tidbits that came out of this conversation about Dennis Muren’s career and his thoughts on a lifetime in the visual effects industry:
