Another Yoda statue, California Star Wars fans may get
Star Wars fans might soon have another Yoda statue in the San Francisco Bay area to visit.
Filmmaker George Lucas plans to help build a small park in Marin County that would feature a bronze sculpture of the popular Star Wars character, along with one of Indiana Jones.
Lucas' estate manager says the Yoda statue would be similar to one in San Francisco's Presidio neighborhood. That one - a full-sized replica of the Jedi sage - lies atop a fountain outside an arts center where Lucas moved most of his operations in 2005. It has become a big draw for fans.
The Marin Independent Journal reports that Lucas applied for a permit Wednesday to demolish a building on the site of the planned park in San Anselmo, the town where he lives.
