SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (AP) - Filmmaker George Lucas has unveiled statues of two of his most iconic and popular characters at a park in Northern California.
The Marin Independent Journal (http://bit.ly/107I7QL) reports that Lucas was on hand to show off the bronze renderings of Indiana Jones and Yoda at Imagination Park in his hometown of San Anselmo on Thursday.
About 500 people attended the event at the nearly completed downtown park as the Indiana Jones statue stands about 6-foot-3 and the Yoda statue is about 2 1/2-feet tall.
Lucas donated land for the 8,700-square-foot park.
Officials say a community foundation fund has so far raised about $125,000 of the $300,000 needed for the park's ongoing maintenance and upkeep.
The $125,000 does not include a $10,000 donation approved this month by the San Anselmo Town Council.
