LA Chosen As Home For New George Lucas Museum

BACK OVER TO YOU.

PAUL: L.

A.

IS NOT THE CHOSEN ONE FOR THE SITE OF THE GEORGE LUCAS MUSEUM.

PAT: THE BILLION DOLLAR PROJECT WILL BE LOCATED IN EXPOSITION PARK.

DAVE LOPEZ IS LIVE AT CITY HALL WITH REACTION FROM MAYOR BILL GARCETTI.

REPORTER: THAT'S RIGHT, WHEN WAS LAST THE LAST TIME THEY SAW THE MAYOR OF THE CITY AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS MADE, THE PEOPLE STANDING NEXT TO THE MAYOR BREAK OUT INTO APPLAUSE? WELL, THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED HERE.

THIS IS A GREAT DAY FOR THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES AND THE PEOPLE THAT COME TO VISIT US FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

BECAUSE TODAY LUCAS MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART ANNOUNCED THAT THEY ARE COMING TO THE CITY OF ANGELS.

LET ME THANK GEORGE LUCAS.

TWO PEOPLE THAT PUT A BOLD VISION FORWARD THAT ENGAGES EVERYONE IN THOSE BASIC FORMS OF STORYTELLING.

AND THE VERY BIG DEAL, IT IS A 1 BILLION-DOLLAR BUILDING THAT GEORGE LUCAS AND HIS WIFE WILL FRONT THE MONEY FOR AND THEN THEY WILL ALSO HAVE THE ART INSIDE AND THAT WILL INCLUDE MANY OF THE "STAR WARS" MEMORABILIA AND IT WILL BE AT THE EXPOSITION PARK AREA NOT FAR FROM WHERE THE SOCCER STADIUM WILL GO IN.

THE TARGET IS 2020.

LOS ANGELES WON QUITE THE BATTLE OVER THIS BECAUSE FIRST IT WAS CHICAGO AND THEN IT WAS SAN FRANCISCO.

IN THE END LOS ANGELES WON.

HE ALSO HAS TIES TO SAN FRANCISCO, BUT LOS ANGELES HE ALSO HAS A HOME AND HE ALSO WENT TO USC.

LOS ANGELES WAS TOO MUCH TO RESIST AND THE LUCAS MUSEUM WILL BE HERE ON IN CENTER.

AS YOU SEE BY ALL THE PEOPLE.
