Obviously, George Lucas is a maniac. He’s a big fat billionaire who makes children’s movies about racist space creatures and gay robots. He lives in a militarized compound and gave birth to all the nerds from his mind-vagina. But the ways in which his insanity expresses itself might surprise you! Or not! I’ve got no idea what you’re expecting right now! From the Toronto Sun:

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’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.”

Hahaha. Oh, George Lucas. You are literally crazy for this one. Hopefully you built some kind of mental in-patient facility on Skywalker Ranch. I’m talking a place with REAL doctors, George, not just HOLOGRAM doctors in slave-Leia outfits.

  1. So…George Lucas is a closet Monster? Perhaps a lurker?

  2. My dad is really embarrassing sometimes, you guys.

  3. 2012? That’s nothing. I thought the world was going to end when I woke up on Sunday after the monster meet up.

  4. You guys, I’m worried about Seth Rogen. It seems he doesn’t realize the world is ending in 2012. I think we need to stage an intervention. If we all only have 2 years left, we need to let Seth Rogan know that he shouldn’t waste his time (and ours) making shitty movies (see Green Hornet review).

  5. You won’t be laughing when planet Nibiru comes into view in a couple of weeks and everyone’s like, “That’s no moon…”

  6. Shut up, George Lucas, sure, but also shut up Seth Rogen. You should be so lucky to have the world end in 2012. That’s about how much time you have left in the public eye anyway, so apocalypse would really just save you the emotional anguish of having the public stop caring about your movies.

  7. I have a bad feeling about this…

  8. This may not be the place to share, but I’m going to anyways. I LOVED the Family Guy Star Wars spoof. It had me rolling with laughter, and I’m not typically much of a Family Guy fan.

  9. Even if the world ends, we can still have 3 prequel worlds several years later.

  10. Steven Spielberg calling you his “nerdy friend” = Moe and Larry calling you “our dumb brother.”

  11. And he’s dancing like he never danced before?

  12. I don’y know, Birdie seems to sense something amiss Lucas could be onto something.

  13. What he means by that is that he is releasing the prequels to the prequels which will be exponentially worse, thereby causing a spike in awfulness so severe that everyone kills themselves in the entire world.

    • Yes, but it will be more a direct of awfulness, rather than existential. Like The Happening – the films release a toxic gas into cinemas, and everybody runs under a bus (or lorry, depending). The final signs of life will be a scatter of popcorn littering an alleyway, soon consumed by crows.

  14. Oh so that’s why the blu-rays are coming out this year.

  15. For those that haven’t heard it before, David Lynch has got the all time best George Lucas story…

    • Not gonna do it. I refuse to accept David Lynch as a real person. He is a corporeal being, taking documentaries from his wonderful alternate dimension and passing them off as movies here.

    • Whoa. I’d never heard David Lynch’s voice before.

      And now I’ve just realized that for some reason, I’d always assumed that David Lynch’s voice sounded exactly like Christopher Lee’s. I’m just going to pretend I never saw this video so I can maintain that assumption.

  16. No wonder I can’t buy a flannel shirt anywhere in Marin County. Motherfucker is hoarding.

  17. Don’t worry. In 20 or so years, there’ll be a prequel to 2012 just waiting.

  18. Hey now, Spielberg gave us the 4th Indiana Jones movie, that asshole is no better*.

    *Just kidding. He is so, so much better. But that movie was a tragedy.

  19. Patiently awaiting 2012: Special Edition

  20. “The force is waaaay off with this one.”

  21. For some reason, I don’t think Seth Rogen is going to close that deal with George Lucas.

  22. I forgot George Lucas was still a thing.

  23. So I guess Lucas is going to give away all his money this year, right?

  24. You know laugh all you want, but no one listened to the guy who said that Alderaan would be destroyed by the Empire; even after the naysayers said that the entire starfleet couldn’t destroy the whole planet and that it’d take a thousand ships with more fire power than they’d ever seen.

  25. “Yousa thinking yousa people ganna die?”

  26. ummmm….is Seth Rogen in the next Indiana Jones movie?

    2012 indeed.

  27. It’s like a Just for Men ad went all schizophrenic.

  28. I think his large chin is actually some sort of mind-altering parasite.

  29. “He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes”

    I sense the makings of a reality show about their wacky Hollywood friendship…

  30. Q: Lucas vs. Spielberg, who would win in a fight?
    A: Beard.

  31. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Seth Rogen go to a bar. And there’s also a piano player with a monkey in the bar. This detail is important. So Lucas goes on about the world ending in 2012, Spielberg rolls his eyes, and Rogen just looks confused when the monkey (the one owned by the piano player) comes up and pees in Lucas’ drink. So Lucas goes up to the piano player and says “Do you know your monkey just peed in my drink?” And the piano player says, no, but I do know you raped my childhood. Anyway, that’s the expression people use when reacting to the prequels or the new CGI footage inserted into the original trilogy; I mean, the audience’s combined reaction is so strong, and these movies are just entertainment, mind you, but that the reaction against anything to do with Star Wars since Return of the Jedi can only be described in terms of abusive childhood trauma, it really should tell you something. And also the world is not ending in 2012 because comparative calendar time is completely arbitrary at this point, so it really is something you should only be joking about. And my monkey hates you.
