Oakland offers space for Lucas Museum if Chicago proposal fails

The architecture firm designing the new George Lucas Museum's first-released renderings of the building in 2014.

Chicago is getting more competition for the site of the George Lucas Museum.

Officials in Oakland, Calif., have reportedly written to Lucas saying they would welcome the new museum.

A local Chicago group called Friends of the Parks filed a lawsuit to stop the Lucas Museum from being built at the lakefront.

A federal judge ordered the city not to alter the proposed museum site while the lawsuit is pending.

Lucas is considering Los Angeles if Chicago's plan falls through.
