In 2008, Kung Fu Panda took a to­tal of 391 artists and ap­prox­i­mately 4.5 years to cre­ate. The Jade palace was made of 88,100 dif­fer­ent sur­faces/ pieces, and 1,040,229 in­di­vid­ual con­fetti pieces were used in the scene where Po was cho­sen as the Dragon War­rior. 50 TB of data and nearly 25 mil­lion ren­der hours were needed for the pro­duc­tion. In 2011, Kung Fu Panda 2 took 100TB of data, and more than 55 mil­lion ren­der hours to ac­com­mo­date for the switch to stereo­scopic 3-D and the new as­pi­ra­tions of the film­mak­ers. The fi­nal bat­tle scene in the har­bor and canals of Gong­men City, is cal­cu­lated to con­tain more than 60 mil­lion gal­lons of wa­ter. This scene alone took more than 7 mil­lion ren­der hours, and re­quired 14,000 frames. 2012’s Rise of the Guardians took more than 250 TB of disk stor­age, and is com­posed of more than 130,000 in­di­vid­ual frames, re­quir­ing more than 65 mil­lion ren­der hours. One of the most com­pli­cated spe­cial ef­fects in the film in­volves the sand used by both the Sand­man and Pitch Black. As many as a bil­lion sand par­ti­cles were used to cre­ate the sand shapes for one scene.
