Greedo shot first, says Lucas

February 10th, 2012 by bash Comments

As much as FTN defends George Lucas from the haters, he does make it hard for us sometimes.

Take the latest interview with Heat Vision. The Star Wars creator has claimed that it was Greedo who shot first and NOT Han Solo.

“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 to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t,” he said.

“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.”

We beg to differ George….

On the latest Indiana Jones news and Steven Spielberg waiting for a script, he had this to say. “The site told him that Steven Spielberg is waiting to hear from Lucas, to which he answered:

“I know, and I’m supposed to be working on it right now, but I’m talking to you instead (Laughs).”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
