"As I start a new chapter in my life, it is gratifying that I have the opportunity to devote more time and resources to philanthropy."
- George Lucas

In fact, in an announcement today, Lucas said that he will be investing the bulk of the cash into an education foundation. Yes, he's pretty much giving the fortune to charity.
