Star Wars' George Lucas seriously believes the world will end in 2012
PEP - Friday, January 21
Star Wars creator George Lucas believes the world will end in 2012.
The 66-year-old filmmaker revealed his apocalypse theory to Seth Rogen during a meeting.
And the Green Hornet actor insists sci-fi legend Lucas has faith in his prediction.
Rogen is quoted by the Toronto Sun newspaper as saying: "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."
As well as Rogen and Lucas, Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg—who created the Indiana Jones films with Lucas—was also present at the meeting but is less convinced by his friend's claims.
Rogen added: "George is 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 George 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."
