Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness - Portal Ride Sequence



This sequel to Doctor Strange pulls at the thread loosened by the earth-shattering events of Spider-Man: No Way Home and WandaVision, and unravels vast secrets of not just one universe, but several of them.

When Doctor Strange saves America Chavez from the Scarlet Witch, it signals the start of an incredibly challenging and creative VFX sequence, as the pair jump through 20 wildly different universes. Framestore’s VFX and Animation teams delivered the previs for this sequence, which went through multiple iterations before establishing the final effects.

In its earliest iterations, the portal ride sequence consisted of approximately 12 worlds, which needed to be built in 3D, and a handful of 2.5D DMP projected worlds. Each environment had to be unique, and follow the lines of the New York City street that the client created. As work on the sequence continued, a further eight full CG worlds were added to the roster.
