Finding Dory "Power To The Octopuses"
HANKS FUN FACTS
LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN – When designers were working on Hank, the cantankerous octopus in Finding Dory, they created tapered tentacles for the cephalopod. The tentacles were modeled separately from the body, but when they tried to attach them, only seven would fit. Filmmakers later decided that it made sense that Hank would have an affliction, so they worked it into the script.
- 350 suckers are found on Hank: 50 suckers on each of his seven arms.
- 11,041 rigging prims were created just for Hank’s simulation (the average character requires around 20).
- 118 weeks were required of the team of technical directors who were responsible for building and articulating Hank.
- 22 weeks were spent shading Hank to give him extra texture and color, as well as making it possible for him to camouflage himself. (An average character takes less than eight weeks.)
Finding Dory swims home on November 15th!
