The Covid-19 pandemic shut down much of Hollywood, and while voice actors were more able to continue their jobs as normal than were most of their live-action counterparts, that doesn’t mean the animators had an easy go of it. In the new DVD set for Rick and Morty: The Complete Fifth Season, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has included a short documentary about the production of the season, which took place largely during the pandemic. Titled “Fighting Gravity: The Making of Season 5,” the featurette is available only on the DVD release of the series. WB has provided ComicBook with a clip from it, which you can see above.
In Fighting Gravity, co-creator Dan Harmon and the crew reflect on the challenges of completing this season in the middle of a pandemic and the creative process behind the story’s biggest revelations.
