New 4K ‘Star Wars’ Restoration On Disney+ Messes With Han Solo and Greedo Cantina Scene
  |  @   |  

The ongoing debate on who shot first, Han Solo or Greedo, continues. This honestly wouldn’t be a thing if changes hadn’t been made to the original Cantina scene from the first Star Wars film, in which Han was the first to shoot his blaster at Greedo. However, the controversy started when George Lucas altered it in the 1997 Special Edition, making it look like Greedo shot first, followed by a fatal shot from Han. Other alterations would soon follow, but none as crazy as this.

Now that Disney+ has launched, subscribers are taking a look at what the studio’s streaming service has to offer, including a 4K restoration with Dolby Vision and Atmos. But the impressive upgrade comes at a huge cost to the infamous “who shot first” scene, at least, because fans have notice that it has been further modified. Now it has been made to look like Han and Greedo shot simultaneously. More on the report below.

Abrams and co-writers Michael Arndt and Lawrence Kasdan.

Now excerpts from said memoir reveal how unhappy Lucas was with that decision. More on this below.
