Lucasfilm Singapore now OPEN for Business

The new Lucasfilm facility in Singapore  is running at “full swing” and its artists are already working on major projects, says Kathleen Kennedy, the company’s president.

The projects consist of  the upcoming superhero movie Avengers 2, the fifth installment in the Jurassic Park movie franchise, the sequel to 2007’s Hitman action movie, the fourth movie in the Transformers series, an unnamed animated feature, as well as a movie to be screened as part of a theme park ride.

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Jurassic World will be released in 2015. The Hitman sequel, tentatively titled Agent 47, is expected to be released later this year. Transformers: Age Of Extinction, will also be released this year, during the June and July blockbuster season.

“This will be our busiest year ever at ILM,” says Kennedy. Industrial Light & Magic, or ILM, is the arm of Lucasfilm which creates digital effects for films.
