    It still surprises me that someone Dean’s age is a Star Wars purist. Most very young kids have never even seen the original versions, they grew up with the Special Editions and have no problems with any of the changes because they think they’ve always been that way.

    Have you seen the little girl who does the Star Wars recap in under 5 minutes? She’s adorable and she’s under 5. Many young keep hearing about it or see their parents watch and end up hooked.

    What kind of an argument is that, Han Solo is the ONLY person who shot Greedo. Greedo did shoot AT Han before Han shot at Greedo, however.

    But they have lived around the t-shirts and the ‘discussions’ (arguments) enough to pique their curiosity and investigate them themselves. I still have Eps 4, 5, & 6 on videocassette and occasionally dust off the old VCR just to watch Han meet with Jabba’s agent (in later revisals, replaced with Jabba himself). And yeah, I am clearly on the side of “Han shot first”: I have the hard evidence! Mwahahahaha. Just wish I could find a VHS copy of the original “Hardware Wars”; I only have the digitally enhanced version DVD that includes the dozens and hundreds of eggbeaters filling the skies, not the scant few in the original. (You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll kiss three bucks goodbye!")

    What’s wrong with the compromise we’ve got going now? They shoot at the same time. Or if you’re that picky just watch your old vhs’s. If I could change anything I’d bring Boba’s old sexy voice back, the new one is not at all attractive.

    Well, technically, Greedo was a bounty hunter (although not a great one, obviously) and I’m sure he shot at many people and was shot at BY many people… the whole point is that Han was a real bad mamma jamma before he turned good by the end of Jedi. ;-)

    Not really.

    Greedo drew first and said he would kill Solo. So Solo shot him first. What is the big deal—-let Greedo not only have the drop on him but shoot first?

    Not in the original, he didn’t. He merely voiced a threat, to which Solo replied by emptying his blaster. “Sorry about the mess.”

    Han’s shooting of Greedo was a change that never needed to be made, I saw the movie in 1977 and at no time did anybody EVER disagree with Han shooting Greedo first, it was seen as an example of what a ruthless, savvy bastard Han was. He’s a smuggler and criminal, of course he’s going to take someone out who’s pointing a gun at him, especially someone as stupid as Greedo. He gave him several chances to back down, and Greedo didn’t, so boom.
    One reason fans were so shocked at the change was that NObody saw it coming, it was one scene that seemed so iconic that it was unthinkable that Lucas would mess with it. And I still have never heard a good reason for his changing it, other than the lame “It was always supposed to happen that way.” Then why wasn’t it filmed that way in 1977? My guess is Lucas wanted to make Han seem ‘nicer’, but the scene was perfectly fine to begin with. Han isn’t a nice guy at that point, and the change just made him look stupid for letting an inept thug like Greedo get the drop on him.

    My son being one of them. He’s 8 now. Been addicted to Star Wars since he was 4.

    NO, he did not. Only in the special edition did that happen.

    Han is a scoundrel. And a scruffy looking nerf herder to boot.
