I really dislike the added Jabba scene in the SE, and not only for the obvious and poorly executed CGI either.
In my opinion Han would have managed to get off Tatooine WAY before Jabba even got the chance to catch up with him.
In fact, I don’t think Han would be careless enough to leave any trails to allow Jabba to discover where the Falcon was docked.
Han was better than that!
Just another thing to mess up Han’s character, and is right up there with the ‘Greedo shoots’ scene for me!
Well, the problem is the scene was originally made back when the rest of Star Wars was originally made. You make it sound it’s something Lucas thought up years later. He just didn’t have time to add in an effect to replace the stand in actor back in the 70s so the scene got cut.
