You’d think a billionaire visionary wouldn’t buy into the whole 2012 Apocalypse predicted by an ancient civilization, but then again most of these celebrities are a little off to begin with, so I don’t think it’s that far of a stretch. I have every reason to believe that George Lucas does in fact believe in the end of times in 2012. Hell, he believed that he made 3 good Star Wars prequel films, so this dude is capable of fooling himself. Georgey boy revealed his beliefs about the 2012 Doomsday event to Seth Rogen of all people, which should have you scratching your head more than the fact that he believes in the event itself. Since when do George Lucas and Steven Spielberg take meetings with stoners?
I guess when your movies make money like most of Rogen’s, anyone is willing to meet with you to get some of that action. Seth summed up George Lucas’s rant on his beliefs about the 2012 event, which can be seen below.
“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.”
Rogen truly is a great storyteller as seen in his recollection about the event above. I can picture him sitting there with George and Steve, post bong hit, listening to one of the true visionaries of our time talking about a theory developed by a civilization from the distant past. I’m sure his mind was literally getting blown over what he was hearing.
I also like how he points out that Lucas is the bigger nerd between him and Spielberg. I don’t think there’s ever been a better time to use the phrase, “The pot calling the kettle black” when describing who is the bigger nerd between George and Steve. You’ve been wanting a seat on George’s secret spaceship too…
So it seems that George was just joking about his beliefs in the end of the world. I call shenanigans!
