‘Can I have a seat on it?’
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 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.”
Ahahahahahaa! Fucking christ. You know fucking George Lucas has a fucking Death Star up and running already, don’t you? I can safely assume that he does. Or that he’s at least working on it as you read this. Yeah. It’ll probably be done by mid September. Man, I would pay anything to be inside George Lucas’ mind for a day.
I wonder what he’s thinking about right now.
