It’s that wisdom generations of Star Wars fans have come to know. But he’s good with other things, like singing and playing with her.“When you have an idea that lives and thrives for 40 years with multiple generations of people and those messages stand the test of time, it’s because those messages are very wise and very deep,” Hobson said. 9, 2013, Hobson and Lucas welcomed a baby girl, Everest Hobson Lucas, via gestational surrogate. We’re a good combination.” A new lakefront location for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is being proposed in Chicago.
