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.”

Well, as we’ve told you Lucas isn’t the only one preparing for the apocalypse. Looks like he and Ashton Kutcher (crazies) will be tasked with the challenge of carrying on after earth is destroyed.

    All Ashton Kutcher said is that we need to plan for survival in case our interdependent economy craps out on us. Come on eco people should understand that. Our whole system is based on oil, and if anything happens to that there will be pandemonium because people in cities won’t have food. And if anything happened to our access to technology there would be panic. I don’t think its crazy to assume that the system is fallible.

    I agree with you Krissy. I’m of the mind that it’s not a matter of if, but when. It may not even be this generation or the next, but there’s no reason why people shouldn’t teach their children or others the importance of being prepared for such a change.

    I don’t agree with Lucas’ theory that the world will end next year, but Kutcher’s point about out how dependent we are on modern technology for all our needs and the chaos that would result if it disappeared it spot on.

    Perhaps, but if the world ends, what happens to all the flowers???

    Would somebody PLEASE tell Seth Rogen to STOP GIVING QUOTES! He sounds as dumb as he looks.

    That first paragraph should read YOUR boy. You’re is short for “you are”. Think about it. You are boy George Lucas…? That doesn’t make sense, does it? Honestly, this is grade school stuff!

      You ARE absolutely right! Thanks for catching the typo, I clearly missed it, but hope you enjoyed the read nonetheless :)

    I think he was joking, he’s planning on re-releasing 5 of the 6 star wars movies AFTER 2012. I’m sure he was kidding around
