    From his Hollywood Reporter interview:


    You may think that this scene shows Han shooting before the other guy manages pull the trigger, but that's because you're easily confused and also blood-thirsty criminals and want Han to be one too.

    I would have more respect for a renegade Han who shoots first.
    He's not supposed to be a hero. Not at that point, anyway.

    Does anyone really believe a "bounty hunter's" aim would be so shitty that he couldn't hit a guy four feet from him?

    I'm having a hard time finding in the source where the "...and you're just blood-thirsty idiots" quote came from... Maybe someone could direct me to it? Otherwise it just looks like the OP is making shit up and I really don't think George Lucas needs any help in seeming a douche.

    If I were Han, why would I give a bounty hunter who has a gun pointed at me at blank range an opportunity to shoot first, and possibly not miss? It wasn't cold-blood. It was self defense since his life was at stake. The fact that Greedo was "looking forward" to killing him was enough reason for Han to shoot first. That is why I prefer the original. For Han not to shoot first makes Han appear slow to react.

    They both shot in the same scene, that's all that matters to me! :P

    In the original scene Greedo didn't get to shoot at all, actually.

    Excuse the quality - 1977 footage. ;)

    Foxi4, your video doesn't seem to be showing up for me. If anyone else is having that trouble, here it is on Youtube.

    As for George Lucas, I honestly don't know what to say anymore. The man does not care for the fans that once worshipped the ground he walked on, or the great films that he butchers with every additional revision. I honestly can't tell if he's just that out of touch or just that spiteful towards his fans.

    Here is a better video that summarizes the controversy:

    I don't think there is any question Han shot first. If you read the subtitles, it was clearly Greedo's intent to kill Han there so Han was justified in shooting preemptively.

    What does Lucas have to hide? I think he is just trying to piss Star Wars fans off so they unwittingly publicize his demakes in forum flame wars. :P

    Well the Original had Han Shooting first so I'd rather go with that.

    No no no you guys, you've got it all wrong. If you watch the original scene closely, you'll see that Greedo spontaneously combusted, and then Han took the credit for it.
