SAN ANSELMO, CALIF. (AP) - Star Wars fans may soon have another Yoda statue in the San Francisco Bay area to visit.

Filmmaker George Lucas 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 tells the Marin Independent Journal ( http://bit.ly/YsKH3u) the Yoda statue would be similar to one in San Francisco’s Presidio neighborhood. That one _ a full-sized replica of the Jedi sage _ lies atop a fountain outside an arts center where Lucas moved most of his operations in 2005.

It has become a big draw for fans.

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