Legendary filmmaker George Lucas will soon undertake a brand-new, epic endeavor: matrimony!
The Star Wars director will soon tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend Mellody Hobson, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. Lucas has been dating Hobson, a DreamWorks Animation chairman, since 2006.
This will be the second marriage for Lucas, 68, and the first for Hobson, 43.
Lucas recently sold Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion in cash and stock to Disney. The first new Star Wars movie -- Star Wars: Episode 7 -- will be released in 2015.
