George Lucas believes the world will end in 2012...okay...

01.18.2011

Thanks to a link from a friend who loves STAR WARS this weird article was found.

Usually I stay out of the "George Lucas ruined my childhood" controversy. However, this re-telling of an encounter between Lucas, Seth Rogen and Steven Spielberg is one part bizarre and one part hilarious.

Recently, Lucas and Spielberg happened to join in on a movie meeting that Rogen was a part of. At some point Lucas makes Rogen really paranoid. Here's the story:

“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. 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...’

“I first thought he (Lucas) was joking... 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?’

“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... It’s gonna be him and Steven Spielberg and I’ll be blown up like the rest of us.”

I must be missing something

I had a hard time finding anything funny about this article. Lucas is an idiot, we already know that.

Lucas also thought Jar-Jar was funny

Here's hoping the world ends before the prequels are re-released in 3D

Extra Tidbit made me laugh, forgot all about that one. I'll go with the Michael Richards rant.

Oh yeah, someone needs to ask Lucas what it feels like to be a fucking moron.

Didn't NASA disprove the whole 2012 world ending? The world will end one day when the sun goes into supernova form . . . I don't see that happening next year.

NUT BAG!!!!!!

George Lucas is a nut bag! We all know it. This shouldn't be a surprise. And the reason you can't see his space ship is because he wasn't standing in front of a green screen. That really is the only way Lucas see's any sort of reality. If the world does end in 2012 it can end with him knowing he was responsible for Howard the Duck and Jar Jar Binks. In case you can't tell I am not a fan of old triple chin.

I could tell you the plot of the original Trilogy, because I did enjoy those films. As for the new 3 films, I saw them because I love film and work in the industry, so I did need to see them. Somwhere along the line Lucase forgot what made the original trilogy great, and got tied up in Special Effects. Do you know he actually told Scorsese that he should have shot gangs of New York on a green screen instead of building sets. I'm sorry, that's not film making. Lucas used to believe in

Somewhere down the line he lost is mind. It's sad. Oh and the plot of the new Star Wars films, sucks ass, and is totally predictable. Do we want to discuss the plot of Indiana Jones 4 which he wrote? Let's not forget that the best Star Wars movie in my opinion was Empire, and imagine the surprise that he didn't direct it. Amazing! He has lost the ability to tell a story. Hate all you want, but he lost his mind, and his skill as a Writer, Director, Producer.

heh

of course he doesn't have a space ship, silly. He'll just hid in an old fridge when the world ends and he'll come out fine in the end i'm sure.

So he believes the worlds going to end, then he don't need all the stupid amounts of money he has, he could just as like give it all to us!

This fact of him as a president of a company believing that all investments beyond 2012 is worthless, cannot be good.

Wait...is the world ending in 2012 because Lucas says so, or because Lucas is making another prequel?

The world's not ending, God's just pulling a Lucas and bringing out Earth: Special Edition - the same planet you love with all new totally unnecessary changes.

George Lucas doing something stupid. Surely you jest. Alert the presses, the man who believed Jar Jar Binks was a good idea has said something stupid. This is shocking news.

Also, why the fuck is he planning on re-releasing all the Star Wars films in theaters over six years if we've only got 1 more to go. Fucking moron.

I wonder if he cries every December 31st thinking that the world is going to end because his calender has run out. I repeat, fucking moron.

As long as it happens AFTER The Avengers film is released, I really don't care. How can anything in life ever top that anyway?!?

Well that kinda makes the prequels being terrible make more sense, if you thought the world was going to be over in less than 20 years why would you even try to deliver something good to the world? BTW, Niki if you were a male born between 1967-1985 he totally raped our childhoods, like Roethlisberger style.

He's probably sensing the premiere of his live action Star Wars TV show, when millions of disgruntled Star Wars fans suddenly cry out in terror.

Idiot.

Maybe this is why he keeps re-releasing all of the Star Wars movies over and over.

lol. Don't worry about it. You've gotten 13 thumbs up.

The only time I've heard zang was from Wayne's World. I believe Wayne said zang. Trying to speak an Asian language.

Every now and then I think it's okay to tell somebody to shut the hell up and that man needs it. As for the end of the world thing, it didn't happen in 2000, it didn't happen on June 6th 2006, and it's not going to happen in 2012. Humans just need to realize that it's not our place to know when our world is going to end.

Extra tb: Eddie Murphy being caught with transvestite prostitutes several times!

If the world is ending in 2012, why is George talking about new movie projects?

More scary than the End of the World... is Seth Rogen part of the next Indy movie. :O
