The force – of Chicago's City Council, at least – is with George Lucas, as aldermen voted Wednesday to allow the "Star Wars' filmmaker to build his $400 million museum along the shores of Lake Michigan.Mayor Rahm Emanuel strongly endorsed the project and Lucas' choice of Chicago instead of San Francisco as the site for his museum was considered a major coup for the mayor, who earlier this year scored another victory when President Barack Obama selected Chicago as the site of his presidential library.But as with that library, not everybody favors handing over city parkland for Lucas to build his museum. Lucas' wife, Mellody Hobson, is from Chicago.It may be officially called the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, but it will almost certainly be known as the Star Wars Museum.Not only that, but the museum will showcase artwork Lucas has been collecting since college, including illustrations by Norman Rockwell and N.C.
