(Newser) – Sorry, 2012 enthusiasts, but it turns out George Lucas does not actually believe the world will end next year. “He was not serious when he talked about the end of the world in 2012,” with Seth Rogen, a Lucasfilm rep tells Wired. However, “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.”

So how did Lucas feel about Rogen’s highly publicized misinterpretation? “Seth Rogen is a funny guy,” says the rep, but if the apocalypse really does hit, “George and Steven are taking Chris Rock with them on the Millennium Falcon!”
