The “Light & Magic” of the House that George Lucas Built

The visual effects house Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), founded by director and producer George Lucas in 1975, celebrates 45 years since the world learned of its existence when Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope (1977) was released, with that sequence of the Star Destroyer flying across the screen, heading to infinity. Since then, ILM has not stopped pointing to a future full of promises to discover, as well as challenges and secrets to reveal.
