Lucas wearing "Han shot first" shirt during Indy IV production

Author

Just watched the first on-set footage of Indy IV on the official site, when I noticed Lucas was wearing sw.com's "Han shot first" shirt in the shot he appears in. Gotta love the irony of him actually wearing this (as if the irony of Lucasfilm cannibalizing this slogan wasn't enough already).

He's not one to be too aware of what's going on around him, especially in Star Wars related things.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

This proves what I have always suspected, that Lucas knows EXACTLY what is going on in the fanbase, and to me further proves he wanted to put out the hackjob non-anamorphic '06 DVD release. Someone that controlling is like that for one reason, they are all about their ego, and Lucas knows that a part of the SW fanbase, OOT fans, don't like the SE, don't like the PT movies, so this is his way of giving the middle finger to everyone of us while laughing all the way to the bank.

Lucas thought it was a joke about premature ejaculation when Han's sight returned and he saw Leia in that gold bikini.

I doubt they actually sold too many of those shirts, and they aren't about to give them away.

Yea, my first thoughts upon seeing that in the video were "George Lucas, I'm really running out of excuses to not hate you."

It don't mean nothin'. He gets stacks of free t-shirts all the time, along with all the other stuff his company puts out. He's wearing one of his own shirts or caps in every picture. They're just always on hand.

Where's the image of him wearing the shirt? Your link doesn't show it.

What the heck is on that shirt? That one's just weird.

Since that shirt has about the second worst caricature of Han Solo ever drawn, maybe George is wearing it to yank Ford's chain a little? Or else it's a secret message to the fans that Harrison has signed on for the yet to be announced Episode 7!

I think it's just Lucas' very poor attempt at humor with Ford. Ford's never made any secret of the fact that he's not happy about the changes or the prequels. Lucas just seems like the kind of guy who's been living in his insulated Lucasworld for so long that he doesn't understand that the whole issue of castrating the character of Han Solo wasn't funny to people. In fact, it's cost him even some of his most loyal fans.

With that one change, Lucas finally went too far. However, he still doesn't realize it. Instead of admitting his mistake, he chose instead to lie about it (saying it was his original idea in 1977) and then went so far as to make up cartoon t-shirts about it. Then he somehow thinks it would actually be funny to wear one around the actor whose character he ruined. He's that out of touch.

So shines a good deed in a weary world.

I think Lucas is so screwed up these days that he is going to clean up the OUT and act like it was his idea to do that all along. Soon he will be saying crap like, "I never really wanted the SEs, but I was listening to so many people around me..." He will do a total 180 and pretend that the public were the ones that forced him to do all of this crap...

I know you love things like this, cause it gets all the OOT fans in an uproar, but Lucas loses all credibility when he does stuff like this. For years and years of saying, "Those versions don't exist and I have changed the movies the way I want to cause I couldn't do this and that in 1977..." Then to wear a shirt that actually contradicts his changes in '97 & '04? Doesn't this go right to the point that it is all about money with Lucas, and not his vision, since they are selling these shirts!

It would be like George W. Bush wearing an Anti-War shirt outside the White House one day.

This clip is strange in that it looks like Ford and Spielberg are having a good laugh and sharing the joke and Lucas is the geeky fat kid tag-a-long, who wasn't invited, trying his best to be in the conversation.......also notice Ford is seeing hugging Spielberg and not Lucas....lmao@lucas

Except that one results in 3000 troops dying plus countless others and the other is a make-pretend kids movie.

I've been saying for years some fans need to get a grip on reality and quotes like that one put a big giant bow on it.

That is really funny. I thought the same thing when I first saw that picture of Lucas.

I've always heard that Star Wars was an incredibly-serious, mythologically-meaningful epic created by a genius storyteller whose artistic skills know no boundaries. At least that's what George Lucas and his cronies seemed to say for years. One minute it's about a "vision" so serious that we must change one of history's most beloved films with tacky, cgi head twitches and never, ever let anyone dare see the original versions (at least not in good quality considering how they "don't exist") and yet now it's just a "movie"?

You can't have it both ways.

The truth of the matter is that it's all a money-making scheme as CO said. It's all calculated bullshit meant to continually create false hype. Why not contradict yourself? It's funny after all, and, in that setting, a movie is a joke.

If he does that, I'd be ecstatic. Really, I don't care what his cockamamy reason would be as long as I had the DVDs that I wanted.
