Visiting Lucasfilm “Yoda Fountain” at the Presidio

This spring break we visited the headquarters of Lucasfilm. The 26″ life-sized famous Yoda statue is sitting on top of a fountain located at the entrance of the offices. The statue has become a tourist landmark!

Once we got there a tour bus arrived with “Star Wars” fans who wanted to take pictures with the Jedi Master Yoda and visited the lobby of the building to see a collection of other Star Wars artifacts. The lobby is open to the public during weekday working hours and you are more than welcome to take pictures.

Inside the Lucasfilm lobby you can appreciate wall-to-wall bookcases with books George Lucas read, Star Wars master replicas and awards. You can also find a shiny little statue of R2-D2, a life size Darth Vader and Boba Fett.  Sit on the comfy sofas and tables and enjoy the numerous Star Wars and Indiana Jones series of books.

I really enjoyed walking outside the Lucasfilm headquarters, the day was beautiful, the cherry trees were blooming with pretty pastel pink flowers and the view to the Exploratorium was absolutely gorgeous!!!!

There is a Starbucks around the building. We stopped for coffee and enjoyed the beautiful view!

Have a wonderful day and May the Force be with you! 😉

  1. Great post! I have always wanted to stop by and see the lobby and have my picture taken with Darth Vader! Next time I am in the city I will have to go visit and stroll around the presidio.

    • Thank you Talia! Yes, you’ll have to check it out! Just remember to go during regular business hours. Bring your camera! 😉

  2. WoW!! Impressive videos and I love your photo shoot at Lucas Films. This blog appears to be promoting the Bubbly Bay Area. Impressive job so far. More photo shoots and videos! You seem to be interested in the film side of things. Dolby studios is in S.F., and there is the S.F. International Film festival coming up. Just a little brain storming for you. Every once in a while there is a Fantasy Expo nearby.

  3. Thank you Marlene! I will definitively check out the Dolby studios and the International Film Festival in San Francisco. Sonoma is also having the International Film Festival April 10 – 14, 2013 :-)
