We waited 16 years…for this?
And then there was Jar Jar Binks.
What was George Lucas thinking?
Yeah, that’s what he was thinking.
The Phantom Menace is now 20 years old. I’m glad George sold the rights to Disney, and I’m glad JJ Abrams gave us The Force Awakens in 2015 and will bring us The Rise of Skywalker later this year. Let’s not talk about The Last Jedi. Ever. Please. Thank you.
According to a Lucasfilm rep, it was all a big joke, just like George’s daughter Katie said. But (and it’s a big but, just like Sir Mix-A-Lot likes)…
“…he is an adamant believer that the world is flat, that Stonehenge was built by aliens, and that the sun revolves around the Earth. These are among the many subjects he commonly discusses at length with Elvis, who he’s going to digitally insert into Indy 5 along with a roster of famous dead actors.”
That is per an e-mail that Lynne Hale, Lucasfilm rep, purportedly sent to Wired.com.
Elvis Presley hanging out with Indiana Jones? Hmmm…
According to funnyman Seth Rogen, Star Wars creator Lucas apparently wouldn’t shut up about the Mayan prediction that the world will indeed end in 2012 at a recent movie meeting.
My two cents: I don’t believe the world will end in 2012. Nor do I believe it will not end in 2012. It’s not for me to know…you just gotta live each day like it’s your last. Even if the world does end in 2012, who is to say that you or I will even be alive then?
