The Force is with Los Angeles. George Lucas has selected L.A. over San Francisco to be home to his $1 billion museum, with the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art set to feature pieces from the filmmaker’s personal collection, including memorabilia from Star Wars and other films, vintage photographs and an impressive selection of traditional paintings. The museum is eyeing a May 4, 2020, launch, according to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
George Lucas created the character of professor-archaeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones back in the early ’80s, and had a primary hand in conceiving the stories featured in his first four feature films (all directed by Steven Spielberg).

THR exclusive: In recent interviews, the director has called his relationship to the franchise “a divorce” and said his involvement in the new film would “probably ruin a vision.”
When George Lucas released the first Star Wars film in 1977, he not only proved that big-budget science fiction could be successful, he also demonstrated that flying spaceships and a planet-pulverizing Death Star could be pulled off with the right special effects.
