George Lucas Predicts 2012 End of World

first_imgThe world is going to end in 2012. Seriously. George Lucas says so, and let us not forget that he’s the same visionary who brought the world Star Wars and Indiana Jones and, to a lesser extent, the Howard the Duck movie (largely panned, but surely prophetic in its own right).Green Hornet star Seth Rogen recounted a recent conversation for the Toronto Sun, in which the director just under half an hour explaining that–just as the Mayans and John Cusack warned us–the world is going to end next year.AdChoices广告Says Rogan,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 [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?’ Lucas proceeded to explain that, in spite of all of the evidence to the contrary, he doesn’t actually have a spaceship waiting to whisk him off to another, non-exploding planet, Kal-El-style. “There’s no doubt there’s a Millennium Falcon in a garage somewhere with a pilot just waiting to go,” Rogen added. “It’s gonna be him and Steven Spielberg and I’ll be blown up like the rest of us.”last_img
