‘Star Wars’ Director George Lucas Engaged to Mellody Hobson

George Lucas Engaged

Cue the “Cantina Band” song! Filmmaking legend George Lucas has proposed to his girlfriend of seven years Mellody Hobson — and of course she said yes. That’s right, Star Wars fans, HuffPost Celebrity reports that your fearless leader is now engaged to a successful and stunning businesswoman.

This will not be Lucas’ first walk down aisle. The 68-year-old director was previously married to Marcia Lucas before their split in 1983. This will be Hobson’s first marriage.

The 43-year-old Hobson is president of Ariel Investments LLC, a large Chicago-based investment management firm said to be worth $3 billion. She could probably buy the Death Star, a dozen Jedi Starfighters and still have change over for a couple hundred battle droids! Woah sorry, our inner geek was showing there for a second.

No news on how Lucas popped the question, but fingers crossed there were Ewoks involved. One thing we know for sure: the force is strong with this couple.
