George Lucas has gotten engaged to longtime girlfriend Mellody Hobson. This answers the question of what Lucas plans to do now that he sold Lucasfilm to Disney. He donated all of that money to charity, which he seemed very happy to do at the time, but maybe now he wishes he only gave most of the money to charity. Weddings are expensive, especially when you have them on board a 1:1 scale replica of a Star Destroyer, which is where we assume the ceremony will be held.
million dollar ladyMellody Hobson joined Ariel Investments as an intern shortly after graduating from college, and less than a decade later was president of the company, making it the largest African-American owned mutual fund company in the US. She's been on the directorial board of Dreamworks animation (as well as Starbucks, Groupon, and Esteé Lauder) for some time now, and now she now ascends to head of the board.
