After abandoning plans to build the museum in his wife Mellody Hobson’s native Chicago, Illinois last year (16), he also considered the San Francisco Bay area as a potential site, but Los Angeles has won out, and the Exposition Park neighbourhood near the director’s alma mater University of Southern California is now the official home of the Lucas MNA.

Los Angeles City Mayor Eric Garcetti couldn’t be happier about the forthcoming arrival of “a new jewel” in the metropolis, noting the museum will “soon bring unrivalled opportunities to be immersed in stories told on canvas and celluloid”.
