Star Wars' creator George Lucas engaged

George Lucas

``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.
