Jawas Invade Singapore

April 14, 2011 at 10:53 am | Posted in 501st, Star Wars News | 2 Comments

Lucasfilm is building a new overseas production facility in Sinapore. The new construction has been dubbed the “Sandcrawler Building” since its design closely resembles a Jawa Sandcrawler. The Sandcrawler Building will be located in the Fusionopolis research and development complex. Construction of the eight story Sandcrawler Building should be finished in late 2012. According to The Straights Times the building “will boast a 100-seat theatre, state-of-the-art production facilities and of course, Star Wars-themed decor.” The new building will serve as the “home for Lucasfilm’s TV and feature film arm Lucasfilm Animation, its special effects arm Industrial Light & Magic Singapore, and its LucasArts video games unit.”
