The former chairwoman of DreamWorks Animation also serves as the co-founder and board member of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, which is set to open in Los Angeles in 2025.

"I think [our relationship] works because we are extraordinarily open-minded people, and we're open to what the universe brings us," Hobson told Oprah Winfrey on Oprah's Next Chapter in 2012. "I think we didn't have preconceived ideas about what a partner should be, and so we allowed ourselves to discover something that was unexpected."

Lucas is also the father of professional mixed martial arts fighter Amanda, 42, who he adopted with his ex-wife, film editor Marcia Lou Griffin.

He then adopted daughter Katie, 35, as a single parent in 1988, as well as son Jett, 31, in 1993.
