“Star Wars” fans soon may have another Yoda statue in the San Francisco Bay area to visit.

Filmmaker George Lucas said he plans to help build a small park in Marin County that would include bronze statues of the popular “Star Wars” character and Indiana Jones.

His estate manager told the Marin Independent Journal the Yoda statue would be similar to one in San Francisco’s Presidio neighborhood. That one — a full-size replica of the Jedi sage — rests atop a fountain outside an arts center where Mr. Lucas moved most of his operations in 2005.

It has become a big draw for fans.

Mr. Lucas applied for a permit Wednesday to demolish a building on the site of the planned park in San Anselmo, the town where he lives.
