Apologies for the bump - though in my humble opinion it is very much worth it…

Frame by frame comparisons, GIF’s, the whole nine yards. I conclude that the “new” shot is based on a wide shot of Han shooting Greedo. They took the clarifying shot Lucas claims didn’t exist in the 70’s and changed it so Greedo shoots (at different times with different effects). It’s a fun read, hopefully.

The George Lucas: Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist… thread (Category Numbers 26 • ‘Han Shot First…’ and 27 • ‘George Lucas claims in 2012 that Han NEVER Shot First…’) may also be of some interest on the issue too…
