Had an idea for the EP.IV ANH Jabba the Hutt seen.
Instead of having Jabba be in docking bay 94, have a hovering hologram droid projecting Jabba  from his  Palace.
And Instead of Han stepping  on Jabba’s tail he just walks
Through the  hologram and it distorts. 
This way you are not wondering why Jabba did not have  Han killed on the spot.

Um ... how about just not having it in the movie at all?  I like that idea.

I like the idea of not having it in the movie at all. However, what I would love is if they put in a place where we couldn't see the Falcon, then your idea of the floating droid. I never liked Han stepping on Jabba's tail...

Besides, if you do keep the scene in the movie, you have to do what GL never did - revert Greedo's dialogue more or less back to the 4th draft (pre-revision) script.  That would avoid much of the redundancy of the scenes, especially since one (two?) of Han's lines in the Greedo scene is directly lifted from the Jabba scene!

Lose that stupid scene! ROTJ Jabba looks better even though hes clearly a puppet because he is a three dimensional object. Not a bloody binary drawing... >:(

If you have to keep the scene, I think you can just cut to the reaction shot of Chewie (or something) when Han passes to the other side of Jabba.  Sure, it comes across as a continuity errror... but I think it beats all of the alternatives.

The hologram is a cool idea.  But it would have to be one of those Walking Holo-Emitters that Palpatine had in The Phantom Menace.  That way we could see it move out of the way when Han walks around it.

Of course removing the scene entirely is the only true answer.

Since they're like poetry, what with the rhyming and all, I find that I only need to watch three out of the six films.
