Just an interesting bit of trivia this, really, but The Straits Times have run a feature on the official opening of ILM Singapore. Their building, as you can see from the image above, has been designed to look like a Sandcrawler, at least in one aspect.
This new studio is to work on VFX in much the way ILM always did. According to the article, their artists are already at work on The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, Hitman, Transformers: Age of Extinction, an unnamed animated movie and something for a theme park ride.
We’ve taken shots at the dark over this toon before. It’s almost certainly the one that Gary Rydstrom is directing and Brenda Chapman consulted on. It may or may not be the fairy-focused musical that Kevin Monroe was working on a few years back, but I’d expect not.
And the theme park ride? Well, I guess that’s something Star Warsy. No better reason to keep it under wraps.
