George Lucas is getting married

Just months after selling Lucasfilm Ltd. to Disney, George Lucas is ready for another big change: marriage.

The Star Wars writer-director is engaged to longtime girlfriend and DreamWorks Animation chairman Mellody Hobson, a rep for Lucasfilm confirms to The Hollywood Reporter. It will be the first marriage for Hobson, 43, and the second for Lucas, 68.

In addition to her gig with DreamWorks, Hobson also heads Chicago-based investment management firm Ariel Investments Llc. and is chairman of Ariel Mutual Funds. Ariel reportedly is among the largest African-American-owned money management and mutual fund companies in the U.S.

Hobson is a regular financial contributor to ABC’s Good Morning America and in 2009 hosted a show on the same network called Unbroke: What You Need to Know About Money.

Lucas made headlines in October for donating his $4.05 billion payday – the amount he received for selling Lucasfilm – to an education foundation.

“As I start a new chapter in my life, it is gratifying that I have the opportunity to devote more time and resources to philanthropy,” Lucas said at the time.

It is not yet known when and where Lucas and Hobson, who have dated since 2006, will tie the knot.

Good luck with your second marriage, George.

Did he win her over by relating his terrific experiences with the physical properties of sand?

Good for him. :)

@ sabre: I'm sure he practices his rape face in the mirror to get it just right.

[...] Hobson, 43 [...] Lucas, 68
Cradle-snatcher. Or, alternatively, Hobson is a grave robber.

They've been together a while, now. I guess George didn't want to rush into things after his first wife took him to the cleaners.

And that's a terrible picture of Mellody Hobson. She's actually quite pretty, IIRC.

Wasn't he already married... to Star Wars? :p

You can't see her hands... which may account for those facial expressions... :P

I gotta say


She's quite hot.

Everybody wins. Congrats to Lucas, may he take only one bold step per year.

That's terrible! :D But if the pictures are real, it's true. Cradle-snatcher :lol:

Happy for Lucas though.

One small step for giant (Albeit very convenient) leap for billionaire directors.

And I took her to be my wife :jab1
