Thank you for such a beautiful and informative thread. I had no idea on the scale of the edits and changes to the movies with each release since 1997, and look forward to learning more on here.

Holy crap, I did Greedo Shot First.

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.

A cracking read - thank you doubleofive 😃
 

Lucas really does ‘Shoot Himself In The Foot First - And Then Again And Again And…’ with some of his decisions - and claims - over the years!

(the above slogan may need some further work for it to catch on… 😉)

 

Edit: That is really a cracking piece mate - I hope you consider adding it as a separate article on your blog / site too? - without the constricting formatting and character limitations of twitter.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

It is this thread and that wonderful twitter account that help us keep our sanity afloat.

Thanks again as always.
