President Kathleen Kennedy unveiled their new headquarters in Singapore, Southeast Asia recently.
The "Sandcrawler" building, named after the Jawas' vehicle on Tatooine in Star Wars IV, is reportedly 242,190 square-feet. It is in a southwest Singapore suburb, has a 100-seat theater and most importantly, it has a Yoda fountain!
Lucas, who sold the company to Disney in 2012 for $4 billion, said that the Sandcrawler "is a symbol of the people of Singapore and computer animation combining with Lucasfilm to create something that is (of) world quality".
Kennedy, who was also in town to unveil the new headquarters, told reporters "This will be our busiest year ever at Industrial Light & Magic." The company is currently working on Transformers 4 and Avengers 2 and will be adding about 40 new staff members by the end of the year.
Lucasfilm has previously worked on such films as Pacific Rim, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the Iron Man films as well as the Clone Wars series in Singapore.
