Jan. 04 - ''Star Wars'' creator George Lucas is set to wed his longtime girlfriend Mellody Hobson. Alicia Powell reports.
"Star Wars" creator George Lucas is engaged to marry his longtime girlfriend Mellody Hobson. Lucas, 68, and Hobson, the president of a Chicago investment firm, have been together for the past six years. This will be Lucas' second marriage and the first for 43-year-old Hobson. Lucas launched "Star Wars" in 1977, developing it into one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time. In November he sold Lucasfilm and the "Star Wars" series to the Walt Disney Co. for $4.05 billion U.S. dollars. And all that money should guarantee a luxurious honeymoon.
