“do or do not, there is no try”
There's a devout group of people, from near and far, who make a pilgrimage to the Presidio to see a wise figure. His name is Yoda, and he's immortalized as a life-sized bronze fountain outside the Letterman Digital Arts Center. You can find Yoda in front of Building B, headquarters for Lucasfilm Ltd., Industrial Light and Magic, LucasArts, and the George Lucas Educational Foundation. Step inside the lobby of Lucasfilm, which is open to the public during regular working hours, to find props, memorabilia, costumes, and life-sized Darth Vader and Boba Fett statues. FYI, photography is allowed, so indulge, but there are no tours or access to any space in the building beyond the lobby. Filmmaker George Lucas partnered with the Presidio Trust to bring about the 23-acre campus, made up of four buildings and a 17-acre public landscape. Erected in 2005 on the site of a decommissioned Army hospital, its name is a reverent nod to Dr. Jonathan Letterman, Medical Director for the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War. Remnants of the hospital's history are literally embedded in this new facility, as 50 percent of the concrete from the hospital was used to create the new campus. The building was certified with a Gold LEED Rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.
We got to see the fountain.
The lobby is locked - due to COVID.
Yet we still managed a few pictures through the window.
