"Not only do we have the fur in high resolution, we have fabric on top of the fur, and it's moving in action. We have armor, and it's glinting with reflections; multiply that by 100 characters per shot. It's pretty insane, but it's part of what makes the movie feel like you're somewhere else," Nelson says. But it's the emotional component the filmmaker stresses when discussing the action comedy. "That moment when Po gets to see his mom in his memory, when it goes to a lush, 3-D appearance from the 2-D memory, that still gets me. I was just watching that footage the other day it still made me choke up."
