View on the map. Visit the website:

Part of the Skywalker Ranch and home of Lucasfilm Animation and the Geroge Lucas Educational Foundation, this ranch was built in 2002 and initially housed the marketing, licensing, and general business divisions of Lucasfilm until they were moved to the Presidio in 2004.

It's complete with a lake, gym, cafe, fire access and hiking trail connecting the two ranches, and a yoda statue all contained in a valley high above in the hills. The architecture of the campus was inspired by both Frank Llyod Wright and feudal Japan and is one hell of a place to have a light saber fight.

3838 Lucas Valley Road If you're driving up from 101, you'll notice a "big rock" on the right side of the road just before the gated entrance. From upon entering, you'll stop at the security booth where you'll need to be on the guest list to go any further.
