Here's an excerpt from the story:

Maya's our main package for modeling, animation, light, and rendering. We use [it] every day to build, well, everything CG for in the series. Because we challenge ourselves to always go as big and epic as possible in the shortest amount of time, we need to work with software that’s reliable with a big workload, that can scale rapidly, and that’s very versatile and will give you as much flexibility and as many options as possible. In the case of Maya, it’s the proven VFX-industry package. - Sebastien Bergeron
