Rogen stunned by Lucas' 2012 theory
The Toronto Sun ^ | 19 Jan 2011 | Wenn.com

Funnyman Seth Rogen was left stunned by a recent encounter with his moviemaking hero George Lucas - because the Star Wars director spent 20 minutes telling him the world would end in 2012.

Rogen was left speechless when Lucas and Steven Spielberg joined a movie meeting he was a part of - but the encounter has left him worried his life will be over next year.

He recalls, “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 goes on to say that Spielberg was rolling his eyes the whole time. Can you imagine being in that meeting? It must have been surreal. Did a couple searches. Didn't see it posted.

I saw this a few minutes ago at Drudge's site.

For Lucas, the world may very well end in 2012 if Sarahcuda wins the Presidency.

“Star Wars director spent 20 minutes telling him the world would end in 2012.”

So I guess he thinks Obama is going to be re-elected?

Hollywood people are paid a whole lot of money to live in La-La Land. It is their job to sell us a view of the world which is patently, obviously, a lie.

And that is all fine.

But everyone should be very clear that these people have nothing substantive to add to an intelligent conversation. They really don't live in the real world.

If Lucas starts spending his money like there (literally) is no tomorrow, then I’ll believe he believes it . . . if not, then he’s flacking a project/book/movie/etc.

Rogen should have just slapped him in the head.

This explains the Star Wars prequels. They were one long, badly-acted suicide note.

Which explains why Star Wars is coming out on Blu-Ray this year!

For Lucas, or for the audience?

George Lucas, another Lib loon:

“Lucas explained politely as I listened contritely... “George Bush is Darth Vader,” he said. “Cheney is the emperor.”

I was driving on the beltway a few years ago listening to a CSPAN interview Golding, the NASA administrator. This older woman called in and began to berate him about the fake moon mission and demanding he release the tapes and expose the hoax for all the world to see. Goldin was just quiet and after she had her say, they moved on to another caller.

This must have been another one of those moments. Used to be wacky people would be kept quiet and sometimes in line by their families and friends. Not so anymore.

I read Lucas’ interview in mag 2 years ago. He’s a big time lib and absolutely oblivious that libs are “not” crazy.

I do enjoy the Clone Wars on Cartoon Network but not the “republic” political episodes with Amidala.

Rogen should keep in mind that Lucas has been a professional story teller for about 40 years now. Just because he says, and says it with conviction, doesn’t mean he believes it. Or, as a magician friend of mine often says: sincerity is everything, once you can fake that you can do anything.

The only reference to as why is the movement of the earths plates. Although I am not familiar with Georges religious beliefs I know he feels mankind is creating global warming and their is nothing god can do about it.

I wonder what we did this time

I wonder if Lucas would be willing to sign over all proceeds from his various franchises to me on Jan 1, 2013.

So does this mean there won’t be a Star Wars sequel trilogy?

when Lucas and Steven Spielberg give all their money and stuff away, the world will end.

They will keep it just in case.

The illusion of central position says it all.

Everyone believes that, somehow, everything is different because they are here at this moment, and that things will not go on when they are gone.

The earth is 4.5 BILLION years old and Lucas is a nano-blip.

As are we all...

It also explains why Lucas chose not to film the final trilogy. We are indebted to the Mayans, it seems. ;-)

Their world will end on election day, November 6, 2012, when their heads explode. As for the world inhabited by sane people, no one knows the date or the hour when at time will come.

I love the folks that put so much faith in the Mayan calendar, but aren’t wondering why we can’t figure out their dissappearance. If they could see the end of our world, why couldn’t they see the end of theirs?

No matter, dear liberals, it is true. The world will on on December 21, 2012. Please don’t waste your time voting for a POTUS that will never be sworn in.

Well that must be why the Star Wars movies are coming out on Blu Ray this fall so we can have a little time to enjoy them ;-)
