Last week, George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney for $4.05 billion stating “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of film-makers.” Some might say he should have done so years ago.
It’s safe to say that Georgie boy has done pretty well for himself, and if you need a bit of money right now it might be a good idea to go to his front door and ask Lucas for it before he generously donates it all to education, as he’s stated. I’m not saying you’ll get anything, but you’d hope he’d give you a quarter or two.
So with Lucas now rich beyond his wildest dreams, which other filmmakers can rival his bank balance? Check out these geeky millionaires.
