STAR WARS IN CAL­I­FOR­NIA

The Pullman Magazine - - Places And People To Love -

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.
