HOLLYWOOD – George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, is in a bitter feud with his neighbors over plans to sell off land near his Skywalker Ranch for low-income housing in the rural enclave of Marin County, north of San Francisco.

Those plans are sitting well with infuriated neighbors of Lucas, who accused the director of “inciting class warfare” and “spite”.His company, Lucasfilms, said the move would create hundreds of highly paid jobs, but opponents objected to noise and light pollution, arguing it would “destroy our dark starry skies”.
Marin County, which is one of the richest areas in the US, postponed the application last month, causing Lucas to admit defeat.
The company is now working with a group that wants to build 300 low-income housing apartments on the land.
Neighbors have said they won’t give up and will fight every step of the way.
