In Forbes’ latest release, Lucas triumphed over other renowned American celebrities such as Steven Spielberg, Oprah, and Michael Jordan. It is believed that his wealth rose steeply after selling his San Fransico-based film and television production company, Lucasfilm to Disney.
The sale happened a while back in 2012 for a price not less than 4.1 billion. His close ally Steven Spielberg follows closely with an estimated net worth of $3.7 billion.
