STAR WARS IN CALIFORNIA
Another adventure series for George Lucas, father of the Star Wars saga: that of his age-old ambition to create a “Museum of Narrative Art.” While the initial idea was to locate it in Chicago, the museum suddenly changed location in June 2016 and is now finally confirmed by the Lucas Foundation to open in California. Although the battle still is not settled between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the first seems in favour, and John King, San Francisco Chronicle’s urban design critic, expects to have the verdict out “anytime before the end of this year.” Dedicated to the various aspects of storytelling, the museum will delight fans of Luke Skywalker and Indiana Jones alike. Almost more importantly, the director’s private collection of popular art, including illustrations by Norman Rockwell, films, comics, photos, as well as animation and digital art will also be on display. Furthermore, young filmmakers-to-be will have the opportunity to attend in-house screenings, master classes and workshops in 2018. All in all, we sure have not heard the last from the Star Wars saga. One thing is certain: San Francisco will soon have its very own and first Pullman Hotel.
