CHICAGO (AP) — As Yoda might say: A site for a museum you must find.

Those are the marching orders Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is giving a dozen civic leaders as the city searches for a potential location for an interactive museum to house filmmaker George Lucas' collection of art and filmmaking memorabilia.

Emanuel gave the group until mid-May to find a spot that's accessible to all Chicago neighborhoods and that's big enough to house the potential museum.

There is still a chance that the Lucas Cultural Arts Museum will be built on Chicago Park District land, although other cities including San Francisco are also in the running for the project.

The creator of "Star Wars' Lucas is married to Chicago businesswoman Mellody Hobson, and the city is considered a possible front runner.
