Mulan: Bringing Legend to Life

Weta Digital VFX Supervisor Anders Langlands will present how he led the team in creating the vast Imperial City - a fictional environment based on blend historical places and design principles of the era. He will also share how they created subtle extensions and dramatic embellishments to the sets surrounding some of the iconic fight sequences in the film, including the showdown with Bori Khan.

Anders Langlands is an Academy and BAFTA-nominated Visual Effects Supervisor, who did visual effects for Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan (2020), including the CG creation of the large-scale medieval Chinese city. For Alita: Battle Angel (2019) he led the high angle shot of the post-apocalyptic Iron City, as well as the emotionally intimate scene between the fully digital cyborg Alita and her live-action love interest. He also was part of the supervisory team on War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) which was nominated for Academy and BAFTA awards.

He was nominated for a BAFTA for X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), MPC Montreal’s first film, and an Oscar for The Martian (2015), its second.
