The man who invented ‘Star Wars’ had an epic romance of his own on June 22, tying the knot with his girlfriend of over six years.

We’re sure there are some amazing jokes about the Force to make here, but let’s stick to real life — on June 22, Star Wars creator George Lucas married his longtime girlfriend, Mellody Hobson at his Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, Calif.

The sci-fi icon’s nuptials brought out a bunch of stars, mostly ones who have worked with George in the past, according to PeopleSamuel L. Jackson, who played Mace Windu in the Star Wars series, tweeted, “Let’s give a Galactic shout out to Master George Lucas & his bride Melodie on this, their wedding day.” And Ron Howard, who starred in George’s classic American Graffiti wrote on Twitter that the ceremony was “a joy to behold.” He also tweeted that the “service was beautiful, nothing short of profound. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Lucas.” Jar Jar Binks has not yet tweeted anything (he probably wasn’t invited).

George, 69, became engaged to Mellody, 44, in January. They have been dating since 2006. Mellody heads the investment management firm, Ariel Investments. She also acts as a money and personal finance contributor to ABC News and she is chairman of the board at Dreamworks Animation SKG Inc., People reports.

This is George’s second marriage — he was previously married to film editor Marcia Lucas from 1969 until they were divorced in 1983.

Congratulations George and Mellody. May the force be with you two! (Sorry, we had to say it.)
