CHICAGO -- It's not a galaxy far, far away, but Chicago will soon be the home for a collection of art and movie memorabilia for Star Wars creator George Lucas. Lucas chose Chicago over Los Angeles and San Francisco. The museum will be located on parking lots between Soldier Field and McCormick Place. It's expected to open in 2018.
