Industrial Light & Magic has unveiled not one, not two, but three visual effects featurettes showcasing their work for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft.

The featurettes include behind-the-scenes footage and breakdowns along with artist sound bites. They cover the creation of the film’s Orcs, the Horde, and ILM’s new hair grooming tool, Haircraft. ILM is well-known for producing impressive breakdown reels and featurette videos. The studio, and other vfx vendors, often release these pieces around awards season.

Despite a lackluster box office performance in the United States, Warcraft grossed $433.5 million worldwide, led by a powerful $220.8m gross in China.

Check out the new featurettes below:
