A secret. An invitation to a new life. A better life. In another galaxy!
Sci-fi takes us to unknown worlds where the past and future can collide right before our eyes. The freedom of this genre plays right into everything that we love. Wētā Workshop Unleashed takes you inside our imagined science fiction movie, Origins.
Discover a sci-fi adventure
Join two scientists as they discover colossal alien artefacts buried deep beneath an ancient volcano right here in New Zealand. What they find will not only change our past, but also the future of the human race. And the key to unravelling this intergalactic mystery is Aotearoa's own indigenous insect - the wētā bug!
Building to schematics
Sci-fi is one of Wētā Workshop’s favourite genres because it engages the imagination and demands exacting detail. Sci-fi worlds must be meticulously imagined and then crafted to the highest degree if they are to be believable to the viewer. Letting our imaginations run wild is fantastic fun, but transforming the fantasy into reality takes passion, persistence, a lot of planning, and precise execution - perfect for a company whose motto is: We Bring Imaginary Worlds to Life!
