Lucas and Hobson 2007

It seems Star Wars creator George Lucas is a married man after exchanging vows with his longtime girlfriend Mellody Hobson.  Lucas wed Mellody Hobson in front of family and friends, including fellow filmmaker Ron Howard, over the weekend. It was previously reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Lucas and Hobson would be wed on June 29th. It seems that this was not the case.

Our first clue came on Saturday June 22nd, when Samuel Jackson tweeted:

“Let’s give a Galactic shout out to Master George Lucas & his Bride Melodie on This their WEDDING DAY!! Congrats!!!!!!”

Then on Sunday June 23rd, Ron Howard who by all accounts was in attendance tweeted:

“George Lucas Melody Hobson wedding was joy to behold Bill Moyers service was beautiful, nothing short of profound. Congrats Mr&Mrs Lucas.”

The couple became engaged in January, and had been dating for seven years.

Further details about the ceremony were not available at this time.

On behalf of everyone at FTN we wish them luck, and may The Force be with them always.
