George Lucas Predicts World Will End In 2012… Seriously
I’m not trying to step on the toes of any Star Wars fanatics out there but… Your boy George Lucas be crazy! And I don’t mean in the fun kinda way either.
How do I know this? Well, it seems that Seth Rogen decided to take a meeting, as the folks of Hollywood do, and Lucas joined along with his good pal, director Steven Spielberg, and then proceeded to explain that world is going to end come 2012…
Understandably, the star of The Green Hornet was a little stunned to hear this.
In an interview he recalled that, “George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it.”
The 28-year-old continued by saying, “He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ‘My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry…'”
So, what’s a guy to do when presented with the world’s demise? Inquire as to plans for survival of course!
“I first thought he (Lucas) was joking,” Rogen said. “And then I totally realized he was serious and then I started thinking, ‘If you’re George Lucas and you actually think the world is gonna end in a year, there’s no way you haven’t built a spaceship for yourself… So I asked him… ‘Can I have a seat on it?’
Lucas’ answer: “He claimed he didn’t have a spaceship, but there’s no doubt there’s a Millennium Falcon in a garage somewhere with a pilot just waiting to go,” Rogen joked. “It’s gonna be him and Steven Spielberg and I’ll be blown up like the rest of us.”
