As seen with the Oscar-winning film "The Darkest Hour", makeup and prosthetics enable actors to fully look the part of the role they're playing. Makeup casters use a process called lifecasting. They'll cover the actor in "goop" to create an exact replica, with which they use to build prosthetics to wear. A lot of movies rely on CGI to bring movies to life, but when it can be done, prosthetics truly do enhance the realism of a film.

    For fucks sake just hire someone with a disability! Disabled people and mentally ill people are nearly always left out of movies and when there is a chance to cast someone, the producers just give it straight away to ablebodied/neurotypical actor. It makes me so angry.

    Make up of Wonder sorry to say WASN’T that realistic of children with facial differences if you compares to photos of real facial deformities! I would suggest seeing the movie Mask from 1985 with Eric Stoltz who played Rocky Dennis who had a more severe facial deformities!!! That one won an Oscar for make up and deserved it. Outside that Wonder was an excellent movie and Jacob should have been at least nominated for an Oscar
