George Lucas planning to gift a museum to the city of Chicago

That's no moon... that's a Museum of Narrative Art

Over the last 35 years, Director and 'Star Wars' creator has made a lot of bank from his creation, with his wealth estimates at over $7 billion. Now at 70 years old, he's wanting to give a little bit back, with plans to create a sprawling museum in Chicago, to house his extensive collection of movie props, memorabilia and art collection. So why are some in the community up in arms against the plans?


Well, apart from plans to remove two large parking lots utilised by fans of the Chicago Bears pro-football team to park near the Soldier Field stadium, the designs for the museum are quite new-age, and... well, hideous.




Designed my Beijing architectural firm MAD, the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is planned to open in 2018.
