LOS ANGELES, June 24 (UPI) -- Hollywood filmmaker George Lucas has married businesswoman Mellody Hobson, Lucas' friends Ron Howard and Samuel L. Jackson said via Twitter.

Lucas, 69, and Hobson, 44, met in 2006 and announced their engagement last January.

"Let's give a galactic shout out to Master George Lucas and his bride Mellody on this, their wedding day," Jackson tweeted.

"George Lucas and Mellody Hobson's wedding was joy to behold. Bill Moyer's service was beautiful, nothing short of profound. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Lucas," Howard said via Twitter.
