Pippa Anderson is the Vice President of Post-Production and oversees the entire post process for the Lucasfilm slate, including live-action, direct-to-consumer, and animation. Since 2013, with production schedules often overlapping, she has led the post-production process for Strange Magic, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Solo: A Star Wars Story as well as the Star Wars Rebels animated series. She will continue to oversee post-production for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX.
After receiving her degree in Business Communication from the University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia, Pippa found herself drawn into the entertainment industry following a stint editing three telemovies, a task she hadn’t specifically trained for in her journalism major but was well suited for as a storyteller. That series of films launched an extensive and successful career in editing for both television and film until finally moving full time into post production supervision. She spent several years as Head of Post for Peter Jackson in New Zealand during which she supervised and delivered a number of major projects, including King Kong (2005), The Lovely Bones, District 9, and The Adventures of Tintin, where she first met producer and future president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy.
When Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney in 2012 and Kennedy was asked by George Lucas to lead the company, she hand-picked Pippa to head up post-production. Since then, Pippa has managed all stages of post for the Star Wars films including budget and schedule strategy, editorial, sound design, music, and final delivery. She was also credited as co-producer on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Pippa is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
