Industrial Light & Magic

When George Lucas began development on the first film in the Star Wars saga, he concluded that the available filmmaking technology was not adequate to fully realize his vision for the story. As a result, he founded the Industrial Light & Magic visual effects studio in 1975. Two years later, the studio won the Academy Award for visual effects on Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. It was announced in October 2012 that Walt Disney Company would purchase Lucasfilm for $4 billion.
