US entertainment giant Lucasfilm inaugurated its first overseas production complex on Thursday in Singapore, which will tap Asian talent to support future "Star Wars" movies and other projects.
Founder George Lucas and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong attended the opening of the seven-storey building -- called "Sandcrawler" after a large treaded vehicle in the original "Star Wars" movie -- in a high-tech industrial park.
The new building will also house sports broadcaster ESPN Asia-Pacific as well as the Southeast Asian operations of Walt Disney, which acquired Lucasfilm in 2012. (AP)
