Starry-eyed Lucas announces plans to marry
A spokeswoman for Lucasfilm Ltd said the 68-year-old director is engaged to 43-year-old investment firm president Mellody Hobson (pictured). No other details were provided.
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 number two 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.
