Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. LLC[1] is an animation studio founded in 2003. Its first major production was the television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and its spin-off feature film. Following the acquisition of Lucasfilm by The Walt Disney Company, over 100 animation personnel at Big Rock Ranch were let go, with a minimum group retained to oversee outsource development on the animated series Star Wars: Rebels. Lucasfilm Animation is currently headquartered in the LDAC campus in San Francisco, California as a division of Disney and remains Lucasfilm Animation in name only. In September 2016, Dave Filoni, known for his contributions on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels accepted a promotion to oversee the development of all future Lucasfilm Animation projects.[2]

Lucasfilm Animation Singapore

Sandcrawler (CX2-1) is an eight story building owned by Lucas Real Estate Singapore and home to Lucasfilm Singapore, Walt Disney Company (Southeast Asia) and ESPN Asia Pacific.

Originally founded in 2004 in Singapore as a means to tap into the diverse global talent pool, Lucasfilm Animation Singapore (LAS) officially opened its doors in October 2005. LAS works closely with Lucasfilm Animation. Boasting an infrastructure that promotes efficient integration and creative collaboration, the LAS production schedule also includes contributions to projects from other Lucasfilm companies. While the largest of LAS’ production groups focused on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, in July 2006 LAS announced the creation of the Game Group and the Digital Artists Group (DAG). With difficulty in meeting the technical and aesthetic requirements of Clone Wars, LAS was ultimately removed from the production and released a number of employees.

The Game Group developed and announced Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Jedi Alliance on the Nintendo DS in 2008.

R2-D2 is featured in the company logo at the end of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The Digital Artists Group serves both as an extension of Industrial Light & Magic, contributing to ILM's work on feature film visual effects. Previously, LAS supported LucasArts’ video game productions as well as Lucasfilm Animation.

In November 2007, Lucasfilm Animation Singapore launched the Jedi Masters Program, a paid apprenticeship providing talented young artists with mentorship opportunities from industry professionals at ILM, LucasArts and Lucasfilm Animation. The Jedi Masters Program has classroom facilities within the Singapore studio and combines classroom instruction with mentored work in an actual production environment.

Due to its old building being saturated, Lucasfilm Singapore moved into a new building at the beginning of 2014.[3][4]
