Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm owners Disney – as well as 20th Century Fox and Paramount – are caught up in a lawsuit over MOVA, software that captures actors’ facial expression to create realistic CGI models.

Rearden LLC, which claims to own the rights to MOVA, has been suing a Chinese company for stealing the technology, which was then used by the studios in their films, says The Hollywood Reporter. The plaintiff is now suing for the rights to characters created with the tech.
