(Reuters) - Chicago has won the right to host filmmaker George Lucas' museum, a spokeswoman for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said on Tuesday in an email.

Emanuel in April had named members of a task force to study potential locations for the museum. Lucas' wife, Mellody Hobson, is from Chicago and the couple live in the city part-time, according to local media. No other details were immediately available.
