Most pointless SE change? — Page 5

You know, the more I think of it, obviously it’s a stupid change that makes the film worse, but actually it does make Greedo firing first make more sense. Originally the two just happened to fire at the same time. But now Greedo is presumably saying something like “I’m gonna shoot ya” which makes the SE change make more sense (as dumb as it is).

Good point. I should amend my statement to say that 1997 was the last time changes were advertised before release of a new version.

Dammit - I was hoping I was wrong and one of you guys knew of a 2011 list of changes made back then on SW.com too! 😃

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?

^ from the linked article:-
 

Do you get notified when there’s going to be a new version of the scene? How did you hear about this version?

Mike Carter, who plays Bib Fortuna, the guy in Jabba’s palace with the strange long ears, he texted me and said, ‘MACLUNKEY!’ I said, ‘What the fuck are you talking about?’ He said, ‘New discovery! It could be as important as Howard Carter and the Tutankhamun tomb.’ I didn’t know what he was talking about for 10 minutes, until I had a look at the scene and thought, ‘Oh right, yeah.’ Disney or Lucasfilm, they’re the last people that ever inform us of anything really – unless it’s the lawyers, then we hear from them pretty quick.
 

I wonder if he said that last sentence with a smile on his face, or if he was serious? 😃

Maclunkey!

It is even shot differently to the other cmaera angles and distances in the film:-

^ it is like ‘let us have a close up of Greedo’s mouth so everybody will notice the difference and maybe more likely to pay for Disney+!’ with no thought to how to it affects the scene or story. This is the 5th version for this scene now… Lucas has to be trolling fans - maybe he was annoyed with us fans over the furore with the changes and colour for the 2011 blu rays? (he did this 4K version around 2012?)

 

As ooj sais elsewhere it is surprising there has not been much information on these new and further changes on the official sites and social media sites.
