In fifty or a hundred years those leaves and branches and rain may be harder to find in the real world, but they will always exist on an animator’s hard drive (I don’t even want to get into the irony of the environmental cost of making and powering that hard drive because I would probably just lay down and give up), and when a movie needs to set a scene in something that could be as exotic in the future as a forest, that’s how it will be done.
