George Lucas' Children: A Look Into Their Diverse Careers

George Lucas

George Lucas, the iconic filmmaker behind Star Wars and Indiana Jones, is not only a creative genius but also a devoted father to four children. His journey into fatherhood began in 1981 when he and his then-wife Marcia Lou Griffin adopted their first child, Amanda. Despite their subsequent divorce in 1983, Lucas continued to expand his family through adoption, welcoming Katie in 1988 and Jett in 1993.

In 2013, after marrying Mellody Hobson, Lucas became a father for the fourth time when they welcomed Everest Hobson Lucas via surrogate. Lucas has been candid about how fatherhood shifted his priorities, leading him to step back from directing to focus on being a dad.

Amanda, the eldest of Lucas' children, has carved out her own path as a professional mixed martial arts fighter. Her journey into MMA was documented in a 2013 film titled LUCAS, which shed light on her upbringing and passion for the sport. In 2014, Amanda and her husband Jason celebrated the arrival of their son, Felix.

Katie, born in 1988, followed in her father's footsteps by pursuing a career in acting and screenwriting. She made appearances in the Star Wars trilogy and even contributed to Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Katie and Lucas have shared many red carpet moments, showcasing their close bond and mutual love for the industry.

Jett, born in 1993, has also dabbled in the Star Wars universe, making appearances in the films and working on The Mandalorian. His dedication to the franchise was evident when he attended the Star Wars Celebration convention in 2022.

Everest, the youngest of Lucas' children, was born in 2013, prompting Lucas to make significant life decisions, including selling Lucasfilm to Disney for $4 billion. This move allowed him to pursue other passions, such as building a museum and creating experimental films.

George Lucas' journey as a father has been intertwined with his legendary career, showcasing his commitment to family alongside his groundbreaking contributions to cinema.
