George Lucas Thinks the World is Going to End!
George Lucas [talked] for… 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real.
He [was] 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.”
We don’t buy a second of it. Not even when Rogen claims Lucas “was serious”. In fact, no uses of “for real” or “totally … serious”, like, totally convince us. For real.
But it’s fun Thursday news. And we bet it gave George a laugh or two.
