LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Star Wars" creator George Lucas is engaged.

A spokeswoman for Lucasfilm Ltd. says the 68-year-old director is engaged to 43-year-old investment firm president Mellody Hobson. No other details were provided.

Hobson serves as chairman of DreamWorks Animation and is a financial contributor to ABC's "Good Morning America."

Lucas helped to launch the modern blockbuster age with his "Star Wars" sagas and "Indiana Jones" adventures. The original "Star Wars" still stands as the No. 2 film in terms of tickets sold domestically, behind only "Gone with the Wind."

Lucas has three children: Amanda, Katie and Jett. He was previously married to film editor Marcia Lucas from 1969 to 1983.

Disney completed its acquisition of Lucasfilm and the "Star Wars" franchise from Lucas for $4.06 billion in cash and stock last month.

His fiancé is beautiful. I'm sure she could do better, regardless of his money.

I hope her bridesmaids dress like Princess Leia and he has a Wookie as his best man.

Ewoks serving at the reception would be wonderful.   However, people will burn the place down if Jar-Jar Binks shows up.

Hmm, on one side you'd got someone who, although successful in her own right, you primarily characterise her assets as her beauty.

On the other side you have a widely admired person, not just rich, but also very artistically gifted and creative, hard working, visionary.

And your immediate thought is "She's pretty, so she could do better."

Ugh.

That is so disrespectful of both of them.

She is an intilligent, beautiful woman. He's been mocked as a sellout for years. He ruined his own legacy before selling it to Disney. If I'm being disrespectful, it's to him. He had earned it. As for commenting on her appearance, I think it's ok to be a super smart career woman AND look good doing it. By the looks of it she would agree.

He directed American Graffiti, wrote Willow, produced Labyrinth, acted in Men in Black, was cinematographer on Freiheit, did the music production for the first Star Wars trilogy, worked with Coppola on The Rain People.

Oh, and he's donating 4 BILLION dollars from the proceeds of the Disney sale to the charity Edutopia,

Edutopia is dedicated to transforming the learning process by helping educators implement the strategies below.

Gee, what a talentless sellout.   Let's judge him by his looks.
