DeAngelo was speaking of course about "scene RB06," which is how The Orphanage's animation supervisor Webster Colcord and visual effects producer Arin Scott Finger coin the early reveal rampage on the Han riverbank. In an interview with the two of them held at The Orphanage in [San Francisco's] Presidio last week, they advised that RB06 was one of the first scenes they wo...
