George Lucas Explains His Museum Proposal (video)



All the while, Lucas has been working behind the scenes on his proposed Cultural Arts Museum not just a home for all the art he's collected over the last four decades, but a place to tell the story of visual storytelling. Find out more in the video above, which Lucas himself had a hand in editing, provided exclusively to Mashable.

The Lucas Cultural Arts Museum is one of three finalists competing for a coveted spot in the San Francisco Presidio, right by the waterfront, with a commanding view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The three have been whittled down from an initial 16 proposals.

Will Lucas get his museum? Currently, that's up to the Presidio Trust, which isn't set to decide matters until September at the earliest. Lucas insiders say that if the Presidio doesn't choose his proposal, he won't look elsewhere in the Bay Area he'll build it in Chicago, where Mayor Rahm Emmanuel awaits with open arms. "It'll be a nice wedding present for Mellody," the former Lucasfilm chief has said. "

Chicago? I would think San Fran is the best place for something like that. With the public school closings and shooting violence, I doubt Emanuel wins another term.

That's just George's age-old tactic of threatening to take his toys and go play somewhere else. He's done it for every big project he's made, from Skywalker Ranch to Big Rock to Letterman/Presidio compound. Just more of the same. Plus, his new wife is from Chicago.
