GEORGE LUCAS – $100 MILLION
George Lucas is not only a famous director, producer, and screenwriter, he is an important promoter of the New Hollywood movement and established the new trend of American cinema in the 20th century from form to theme. George Lucas is the genius mind behind the long-running movie franchise, Star Wars. So, you will surely understand why he bought the Skywalker Ranch, which reportedly cost about $100 million in 1974. Well, Skywalker is the surname of one of the most famous and iconic characters in the movie, Luke Skywalker. The sprawling property has 4,700 acres of land.
He might not have needed a money loan to have this place renovated and updated over the years to make it his own, given his vast wealth. However, until today, details about this property remain under lock and key. Visitors who want to see the place need to be invited. If they luckily get in, it is prohibited to take photos inside. Even Ronald Reagan himself was not allowed to see the place.
