Chicago Becomes Home to Star Wars Museum

“Star Wars” creator George Lucas has selected Chicago to build his museum of art and movie memorabilia.

Bill McCaffrey, a spokesman for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, confirmed the decision Tuesday. McCaffrey did not have any immediate details about the much-anticipated decision by the filmmaker. But the choice is a major victory for Emanuel and the city, which was competing with San Francisco for the museum.

Lucas, who hopes the new project will open in 2018, said: “I am humbled to be joining such an extraordinary museum community and to be creating the museum in a city that has a long tradition of embracing the arts.”
