George Lucas

CATEGORY: Billionaires
COMPANY: Lucasfilm

WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: Based on the classic story of a young man’s battle with the forces of evil, Lucas’ Star Wars introduced a modern myth to a new generation. It also revolutionized special effects, forged new frontiers in sound design, and brought audiences to movie theaters in record numbers. In the late 70s, he established Lucas Films Ltd. in Marin County, a 2,700-acre production center and think tank. Here, at Skywalker Ranch, he presides over a vast entertainment empire (which includes THX, Skywalker Sound, and Industrial Light and Magic) that continuously expands visual and technological possibilities.
