According to Lucas, in the story "as he intended it," Han let Greedo shoot first (actually, almost simultaneously in the latest revision,) Greedo miraculously misses from two feet away, and Han proceeds to fry him. 

Fans dislike the revision because
1) it adds nothing to the movie
2) it looks and is stupid
3) it detracts from Han's character by making him look nicer than he ought to be at that point in the movie.  We're supposed to think Han's at best neutral on the morality scale as far as I can tell, but the scene suggests he's a typical White Hat.

This appeared in the Special Edition and was updated again in the DVD release.

TOTP Cantina Dance and really old explanation.

Lucas addded  tiny laser blasts that hit on the wall beside Han from Greedo's gun in the two "special editions" before Han fries him. To me, it really doesn't matter, they still go by so fast you barely see them, but I will admit it kinda draws out of Han's character development in the movie.

I dislike it for reasons far simpler than character development.

I don't care how bad of a shot you are, you DON'T miss from 3 feet away.

True, so true. The scene is changed from one that is a focus on the scoundrel nature of Han's character to one that is focused on Greedo being the worst bounty hunter ever.

Sorry, M0le; no offense meant.

Hey, if you're ever in the US, and have seven hours to kill, stop by.  I have the original trilogy on VHS.

Well, as a "kid" right now, I have only seen the original OT when I was about 5 to 8 and in school when I saw ESB on the older, but not original, VHS format.

When the OT was released on DVD, I was so excited to go get it, to only find out that it was the edited versions only.

I mean, any egotistical money savy guy would give what the people want in a release of a very wanted movie triology's original format. If he really is an egotistical money savy guy, he will release the NT on DVD a few months after RotS comes out on DVD, then he would release a special format of the NT about a half year after the NT DVD is released with all the edits he wanted and at this time would also release the OT in the original format on DVD, and then, about 5 months after the NT Edited DVD is released, he would release the NT/OT DVD set with the edited versions, and then, about six months after the NT/OT Edited DVD, he would finally release the NT/OT Original DVD set.

So, to put that on a time table:
May 19, 2005: RotS is released in theaters.
October 2005: RotS is released on DVD.
December 2005: NT is released on DVD.
June 2006: Special Edition NT is released on DVD.
June 2006: Original Edition OT is released on DVD.
November 2006: Special Edition NT/OT is released on DVD.
May 2007: Original Edition NT/OT is released on DVD.

Keep in mind this is just my estimates and my estimates only. This is probally not the real time table, but, it looks pretty close to what somebody that wanted to make millions would do.

Also, don't forget he's probally going to release all the movies in theaters.

And that's what somebody who's an egotistical money savy person with rights to a hot item in Hollywood would do if he wanted to get lots of money.

Because, if it's anything like the previous prequels, it's going to contain:

- Absolutely cringe-worthy dialogue.
- Some of the blandest acting this side of a daytime soap.
- Some of the worst jokes in the history of humour.
- Aborted and unsatisfying action scenes.
- And some really unconvicing CG creatures.

I'm not getting my hopes up again.

If you read up in Lucas, you'll realise that he doesn't give a damn about what people say about his movies. Hey, more power to him, but don't expect me to like them.

Can we stop with the ass-suckage spam in here?
I'm looking forward to Episode III, but I only expect it to be as good/bad as the other two prequels.
I liked certain bits of the other two (Duel-age, Liam Neeson-age and Clone-age), I'm sure I'll like bits of this one.

I hope Episode III will be decent, and no Ewok Jedi will show in it.

Hell, It'll be decent when Jar Jar Binks doesn't show up at all, or dies when his shuttle is blown up and survives but stupidly presses the door release of his escape pod while floating in space so we can see him die in pure agony.

Are you kidding me?  And Ewok Jedi would be the best thing ever.  A teddy bear with a lightsaber!  No!  Dual sabers!  I would so play a game as that.

I'm sure there is a Jedi Knight Academy or KOTOR Mod somewhere that allows such a thing.

Has anyone heard about this game yet?  It looks like fun.  (I don't like the prequels, but I do like Legos.)

Plus, it's possible to kill Jar-Jar, so it has that going for it, too.

George only wrote for the A New Hope, two seperate chaps wrote Empire and Jedi.

The writing isn't that bad, sometimes it is the actor like that kid who played Young Anakin in Episode I. Anakin was suppose to be a hopeless Slave, but that kid acted Anakin as a pretty happy well ballanced type that doesn't grow up to become one of the most feared Sith since Exar Kun.

I agree with Zed though, where are the Headhunters and Corporate Sector?

Child acting is very tough, he might have been better off making Anakin CGI.

Indeed, a CGI Anakin would have been a lot better.

Or a mute kid.

How about starting it off when he was born or a little baby and the Jedi finding out then? It would cut out the talking of Anakin and we could still have the same story, though the events in Episode 1 would take place earlier and Padme wouldn't really be in the first Episode.
