    The Grindalid species are the only ones in the galaxy far far away that can't stand the light.

          Awesome panel. Just wished they showed the dogs at the end that didn’t go on camera.

              17:22 Was that loud music actually playing when he was talking?

                As much as I think it’s amazing the stuff they can do with practical effects, I feel like there’s a bit too many weird creations just for the sake of having them. I wish they had more of a balance between CGI and practical creations, to have the best of both worlds from the originals AND the prequel trilogies. And how cool would it be to have an alien type from the originals AND the prequels interacting with one another? I’m really tired of Lucasfilm acting as if the prequels don’t exist. There was a ton of creativity in them as well.

                  REALLY sick of the narrative that the Prequels ONLY used digital aliens. Nute Gunray, Lott Dodd, Ki Adi Mundi, Yaddle, and EVERY Jedi council member, Wald and almost every alien seen on Tatooine and many of the pod racers, Mas Ameda were all practical actors in suits or puppets. The list is much longer, but that's what I could remember off the top of my head. It's so frustrating to see this myth allowed to be perpetuated by Lucasfilm.

                    @Kyle Bookout Doug Chiang's panel was awesome! Bless that man. And I love the digital effects too, it's just not the whole story.

                    Hear hear! Unfortunately that narrative extends into the design and effects. Doug Chiangs panel did a great job of dispelling that myth. Love that guy!

                          I was so happy this panel got posted separate as it wasn't in the giant live stream. I wish whoever the producer was would have realized the audience wanted to see the creatures and images being discussed and not the guy on the couch talking. Hopefully they do something like this again next year and they can get it right.

                              the music in the background is very distracting and stressful. its like the end of an oscar winners speech. are thy telling him to hurry up??

                                    Sadly I believe technical difficulties deprived us of seeing what they showd on screen.

                                          The Droids and Alien effects are awesome, they're still working on quality control in the sound booth, though.

                                                    I was excited to watch this but the sound on the video is so quiet even with turning my television up all the way I could barely hear the discussion. Is there someone who can fix this? Disappointing.

Warwick has to ask them if it's on, and it still takes them a few minutes. I'm guessing the video clip had sound too that they forgot to unmute (or was the sound just so quiet I couldn't hear it?).
