It's one thing to do a single static element at 4K/8K (with not a lot of polygons or hi-res texturing). It's a whole other ballgame to do feature film VFX at that, and today the vast majority are...

Matter of fact ILM called it their most difficult motion control shot of the film and were disappointed it was cut short in the final edit.
