What’s George Lucas going to do now that he’s sold his company to Disney? Get married, naturally.
Lucas and longtime girlfriend Mellody Hobson are engaged, a Lucasfilm rep confirmed to the The Hollywood Reporter. The couple talked about their relationship when they appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter last year.
Hobson is the president of the Chicago-based investment management firm Ariel Investments LLC, chairman of DreamWorks Animation and regularly appears on Good Morning America to talk finance.
This will be Hobson’s first marriage and Lucas’ second. He split with first wife Marcia Lucas in 1983.
