George Lucas was in town last week for the official opening of Lucasfilm headquarters in Singapore. It’s not just a normal building. The building was designed to look like the Sandcrawler in Star Wars IV.
The 22,500 square-meter building located at One Fusionopolis View features a Yoda fountain, a 100-seat theater, retail space and state-of-the-art digital production capabilities. Tenants of the Sandcrawler building include Disney’s Southeast Asia operations and ESPN Asia Pacific.
