So that's Rocket Raccoon?!?

We all love big-budget Hollywood movies but in case you’ve ever wondered how they pulled off those CGI-heavy or practical effects-filled scenes, here’s your chance to find out.

The photos we’ve compiled below will show you what some of our favorite films looked like before we saw them on the silver screen. Most of them are actually impressive but take note, some are surprisingly pretty hilarious!

#3. Jurassic World (2015)
#4. Forrest Gump (1994)

ILM digitally-removed actor Gary Sinise’s legs for Forrest Gump. Stephen Rosenbaum, who worked on the movie’s special effects, said:
