    The visual effects team behind Jon Favreau’s live-action adaptation of “The Jungle Book” discusses the creative and technical challenges behind bringing the story’s characters and stunning full-CG environments to life. A team of over 800 CG artists, led by Production VFX Supervisor Rob Legato, MPC VFX Supervisor Adam Valdez, Animation Supervisor Andy Jones, and Weta Digital VFX Supervisor Keith Miller, worked for two years to animate over 60 species of animal; craft the mountain temple, trees, rocks, and vines; and simulate earth, fire, and water.
