The headquarters of J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot facility in Santa Monica will soon get a facelift. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Abrams wasn’t chuffed by the fact that the Star Wars: Episode VII production would be taking place at Pinewood Studios in England, because itwould be an inconvenience to his wife and kids.”

Ergo, like any upwardly mobile individual would do, Abrams evidently plans to convert a portion of his production facility to accommodate postproduction for Star Wars. Consequently, said wife and kids ought to be happy about not having to relocate o’er the Pond to sodden Britain from sunny SoCal.

“A green room, sound studios and other new facilities will be developed within the three-story, 18,000-square-foot Santa Monica building, which already includes editing bays, a workshop for making props, a screening room that can double as a set and Abrams' personal suite of offices,” the Hollywood Reporter stated.

Abrams latest endeavor to hit theaters is Star Trek Into Darkness, which has already grossed nearly $500 million worldwide. Star Wars: Episode VII is slated for release sometime in 2015.
