Lucasfilm Breaks Ground On Singapore Facility for ILM, LucasArts & Lucasfilm Animation

Micheline Chau, President and COO of Lucasfilm, Ltd is joined by Guest of Honor, Leo Yip, Chairman of the Singapore Economic Development Board and Manohar Khiatani, CEO of JTC Corporation, to officially break ground on Lucasfilm’s state-of-the art facility at JTC’s one-north Singapore. Named “The Sandcrawler Building,” in playful reference to the structure’s visual similarities to the famous vehicle seen in Star Wars: Episode IV, the building will house Singapore divisions for Industrial Light & Magic, LucasArts and Lucasfilm Animation — producing digital animated content for film and television, visual effects for feature films and multi-platform games.

Also joining the ceremony is Lucasfilm, Ltd’s Colum Slevin, Vice President and Head of Studio Operations, Xavier Nicolas, General Manager of Lucasfilm Singapore, and Angelo Garcia, President of Lucas Real Estate Holdings.
