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 focuses on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, in July 2006 LAS announced the creation of the Game Group and the Digital Artists Group (DAG).
The Digital Artists Group serves both as an extension of Industrial Light & Magic, contributing to ILM's work on feature film visual effects, as well as to support LucasArts’ video game productions.
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.
The studio currently[when?] employs nearly 300 people from 41 different countries.
Due to the current building being saturated, Lucasfilm Singapore plans to move into a new building, which is under construction and expected to be finished by 2013.
