George Lucas married his girlfriend of seven years at Skywalker Ranch over the weekend.

The 'Star Wars' filmmaker wed Mellody Hobson at an intimate gathering that took place at his movie ranch and workplace, which is located in a secluded yet open area near Nicasio, California.

The star-studded event included guests such as fellow movie director Ron Howard and A-list actor Samuel L. Jackson.

After the wedding Samuel tweeted: ''Let's give a Galactic shout out to Master George Lucas & his bride Melody on this their wedding day!! Congrats!!!!!! (sic)''

Ron Howard also took to social media to congratulate the newlyweds.

He tweeted on Sunday (23.06.2013): ''George Lucas Melody Hobson wedding was joy to behold Bill Moyers service was beautiful, nothing short of profound. Congrats Mr & Mrs Lucas. (sic)''

George and businesswoman Melody, 44, met in 2006 and became engaged in January this year.

Soon after, Mellody, who is president of Ariel Investments, revealed that former basket ball star and New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley was going to give her away.

George, 69, was previously married to film editor Marcia Lou Griffin, who won an Oscar for her work on the original 'Star Wars' films.
