Jungle Cruise – Weta Digital

Weta Digital’s contribution to Disney’s Jungle Cruise focused primarily on creating environments—including hundreds of kilometres of CG Amazon River, with mist, waterfalls and rapids—as well as the creatures that populate the jungle. We created and hand-animated Frank’s ever-loyal, and fully CG, pet jaguar Proxima, and crafted motion vignettes for the abundance of birds, bugs and monkeys that call the jungle home.
