Star Wars creator, George Lucas, alongside LA officials have begun work on the $1 billion museum that will be dedicated to the art of visual storytelling. The museum is set to be a five-story building, complete with more than 100,000 square feet of gallery space, restaurant, movie theaters, classrooms, a library, and much more. It also plans to house educational programs for children.
