In an interview for QAthe star laughed at the situation, but justified it, saying that the CGI was done in a hurry:
“I know I know [que ficou ruim], but be kind. The people who did the CGI for Scorpion King, they told me at the premiere that they had a tight deadline: ‘Hey Mr Fraser, how’s it going? Good job. You know, we did the digital double for the Scorpion King’. And they were kind of making an excuse like, ‘We needed a little more time [risos] before finishing…”
“Like I was their boss, you know? It was funny but it was last minute, I don’t know how that works. But part of the charm of it is that when you watch it these days… Well, it wouldn’t be as much fun if you didn’t see this clumsy wax figure of Dwayne going ‘Arghhhhh’. And somehow it’s just perfect how things work.”
Remembering that ‘The whale‘ will be released on the international circuit the next day December 9th🇧🇷 In Brazil, no date has been confirmed.

Recently, the star spoke about his transformation to star in the feature film: after all, he gained weight and used prostheses to play a character weighing 270 kilos.
Fraserwho had not participated in a major Hollywood film for years, revealed that he wanted to “disappear” to bring the character to life.
“If there is no risk, then why bother? I want to learn from the people I’m working with at this point in my career. I’ve had so much variety, so many ups and downs, so what I want, in the second half of my time doing this, is to feel like I’m contributing to the craft and I’m learning from it. This is an excellent opportunity. I wanted to disappear on the screen. My hope was that I would become unrecognizable.”
