George Lucas does not believe the world will end in 2012, his people remain sarcastic while speaking for him
A couple of days ago, I shared Seth Rogen's story concerning George Lucas' thoughts on 2012. According to Rogen, Lucas believed in the all mighty Mayan prophecy and Steven Spielberg was like, "He's lost his shit now." (He did not say that last part)
Lucas' people got ahold of the story real fast and have already denied it. Lucasfilm rep Lynne Hale said this on behalf of her boss, "I spoke with George. He was not serious when he talked about the end of the world in 2012 but he is an adamant believer that the world is flat, that Stonehenge was built by aliens, and that the sun revolves around the Earth. These are among the many subjects he commonly discusses at length with Elvis, who he’s going to digitally insert into Indy 5 along with a roster of famous dead actors.” Well, there's not an ounce of heavy sarcasm in that statement, is there?
In the last part of Rogen's story, he had this thought, "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?’”
Answer is no. That shit got shut down quick. Hale said this, “Seth Rogen is a funny guy but George and Steven are taking Chris Rock with them on the Millennium Falcon!” I have to disagree Ms. Hale. I think they're taking Samuel L. Jackson. Also to remind everyone, I do not think Lucas ruined my childhood. This is a follow-up for those who were wondering if the original story was bullshit.
So in the end it was all big mix-up and Rogen misread Lucas.
