George Lucas, freed from all that stressful Star Wars business and likely therapy-ing his way toward freedom from anxieties wrought by decades of Star Wars haters, has made the very “I’m at peace” move of getting engaged to Dreamworks Animation head Mellody Hobson. Hobson is 43 to Lucas’s 68, but Yoda was almost 900 when he BFF’d young Skywalker, so this is really nothing. Lucas and Hobson have been together six years; it’ll be her first marriage and his second.
