George Lucas Says Greedo Shot First ALWAYS

George Lucas Says Greedo ALWAYS Shot First … apparently we were just NOT watching close enough …


“… But obviously it upset people because they wanted (Han) Solo … to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t. It had been done in all close-ups and it was confusing about who did what to whom. I put a little wider shot in there that made it clear that Greedo is the one who shot first, but everyone wanted to think that Han shot first, because they wanted to think that he actually just gunned him down.”

Yea … okay … but from the original cantina cam …

What do you think?

Me? (ThinkGeek) …

    It’s clear to all but Mr Lucas that Han is a bad ass and not to be messed with! (unlike Star Wars films) He new what was going to happen and did what any self sustaining smuggler would do. Shot first and ask questions later πŸ™‚

    Who cares who shot first. I think the only thing that really matters is Han won.

  • John in Missouri says:

    Han shot first, but only because he knew Greedo was going to try to kill him anyway. It was purely self-defense.

    • hypercarrots says:

      does lucas read his own dialogue anymore?

      Han Solo: Over my dead body!
      Greedo: That’s the idea… I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time.

      lucas, how can han’s action be in cold blood when greedo ootabootas han with a blaster in the chest and threatens to make his body dead to fulfill a long time event that he’s looked forward to?

  • BMW says:

    Hope Cars will have this lasting power.
