The Greedo shooting - George Lucas and ‘Star Wars’: 7 of His Biggest MistakesThe Greedo shooting

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more controversial 27 seconds in sci-fi cinema. The scene: After we first meet Han Solo, we see the smuggler get pulled aside by a bounty hunter named Greedo. After the two trade barbs, Han slowly unhooks his blaster under the table, and appears to shoot and kill Greedo in cold blood, establishing him early on as a ruthless survivor. Multiple re-edits from Lucas though have sought to backtrack, citing a need to cling to “a mythological reality that we hope our society pays attention to.” From there, it’s spawned a thousand debates as to what Lucas’s actual intentions originally were. Why it’s important Han shot first, and why a shoddy edit in the extended version only made things more complicated.
