“Behavioral interview questions are the “Tell me about a time…” questions. They prompt you to talk about your past experiences so you can demonstrate you have particular skills.

This time around, people’s eyes are on the digitally resurrected actors, since several key characters appear in this movie as they did back in 1977.

While some pan the move as obvious CG, others are excited about the possibilities that this opens up for cinema.

Whether you dislike such a use of CG or approve of it, the process of bringing the character back to life is simply fascinating.

Check out how the studio recreated the characters here:
