Most people for get that Lucasfilm is a worldwide production studio with outlets and locations all around the planet. Recently, George Lucas’ former company opened a new office building in Singapore, which will be the new location for special effects artists for Lucasfilm, Disney, and Marvel in Southeast Asia. It’s good to see Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm payoff, in terms of expansion and employment.
Lucas and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy made the journey to Singapore to commemorate the opening of the new eight-storey building, which is awesomely shaped and designed as the Sandcrawler from the original Star Wars, and it looks phenomenal. Imagine walking down the street in a busy city, and turning the corner only to see a giant Sandcrawler made out of glass looming in front of you. It’s a clever design and will surely become a destination for Star Wars fans around the world. Kennedy also took the opportunity to expound on the future of the franchise.
