Lucasfilm spokeswoman Lynne Hale said two cities have reached out to the company offering “substantial incentives” to build the new studio, but she could not discuss specific locations. The firm is already in talks with developers about selling Grady Ranch, she said.

“It makes me sad that we cannot build the studio in Marin,” Ms. Hale said. “Other communities understand the economic and educational benefits of having a company such as Lucasfilm in their cities.”
