Since then Star Wars first re-released in theaters, George Lucas sporadically made changes to the saga. Some fans don't care, but others think it ruined the franchise's iconic moments. The original version Star Wars The Disney + movie features a very controversial change.
How George Lucas Changed Han Solo
Three of the most famous words of all Star Wars The fans are “Han shot first.” The phrase is popping up on everything from Ariana Grande videos to t-shirts. "Han shot first" refers to a scene in the original Star Wars Han Han is talking to a bounty hunter named Greedo. Greedo tries to extort money from Solo, who then shoots Greedo in cold blood.
This shoot takes place in Solo's second scene in the movie. It establishes that he is a dangerous man. When Solo joins the rebellion at the end of the movie, it serves as a great growth moment for him because of the previous scene.
In subsequent releases of the movie, Lucas cropped the movie so that Greedo shot first and Han awkwardly awkwardly snapped his picture with a quick nod. Then Han shoots Greedo in self-defense. This made Han's action seem much more justified. Since Han starts out as a nice guy in this part of the movie, his character bow has much less meaning.
Disney + version changes Han again
When Disney bought Star Wars, many fans expected the original unedited versions of the movies to be released on home video. This has not happened yet. Currently, the only way to see the original cast of Star Wars are on low quality DVD copies or Internet bootlegs of the original movies.
When the Star Wars The movies were released at Disney +, fans realized that they included the same changes found in the Blu-ray copies of the movies. The only major addition to the saga was a new edition of the scene in which Han filmed Greedo. Instead of Han filming first or Greedo filming first, the Disney movie edition divides the difference, as the two characters shoot at the same time.
Who made the change?
Cracked.com reported that the scene also features a new Greedo scene where he mutters the alien word "Maclunkey". Pablo Hidalgo, a Lucasfilm employee, stated through social media that Lucas created this edited version of the scene years ago when he was planning a relaunch of the original Star Wars movie. The relaunch was never realized.
Thanks to this new version of the scene, fans of Star Wars They are now theorizing what "Maclunkey" could mean. Based on limited knowledge of foreign languages in Star Wars Lucasfilm has given us, some theorize that the word means "I'll finish you." This translation of the term would certainly make sense given the context of the scene. It seems that fans may have to wait a long time to see an official copy of Han's first film.
