In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Method Studios clarified that AI was used as a tool and did not replace any artist jobs.
“AI is just one tool among the array of tool sets our artists used,” the statement reads. “No artists’ jobs were replaced by incorporating these new tools; instead, they complemented and assisted our creative teams.”
