Star Wars Prequels

Submission + - Lucas tells fans that Greedo shot first. (hollywoodreporter.com) 1

Nephilium writes: It's being reported that George Lucas has completed dumping the original Star Wars down the memory hole, with a statement that Han never shot first.

Lucas: Well, it’s not a religious event. I hate to tell people that. It’s a movie, just a movie. The controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han Solo, in Episode IV, what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Solo [who seemed to be the one who shot first in the original] 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.
