Yes this is all correct but on inclusion of the Jabba scene… I think that Montross became the Rhodian that come to collect Jabba’s money essentially Jabba changes his mind.
Once Montross was written out they needed to still establish Mos-Eeisley was shut down… We have the short scene with Vader and Bast to accomplish this.
But since it probably felt a bit sort of slow and even was getting caught up with the Montross thread as it did not progress the plot the decision was made to take the Idea of the Rhodian Bounty hunter which they had and do the re-shoot of the Greedo Cantina scene which covers all the plot from the Jabba scene apart from Mos-Eisley is Shut.
Presumably the Rhodian at the Falcon was similar to the Cantina scene and how it was shot like a Mexican stand off he was easy to remove because Han and the Rhodian were only seen together probably for only one shot. (It was a short interupted Mexican Stand off gate crashed by Stormtroopers)
You need to remove Greedo in the Cantina as this was a re-shoot in England primarily to remove Jabba and to pair everything down then. I prefer the way it was done without the Jabba scene in terms how the handled it though.
This is the only occasion in the film / script that something quite major was done to change the way it worked. I can’t see any other major changes apart from Killing Kenobi but he had nothing to do at the end anyway apart from give the briefing. When was the Greedo cantina scene shot in the United states after principal photography at elstree?
There would have to be an awful lot of stuff removed creature wise too! Seems Greedo was in and Jabba was out but they had to make Greedo work Better and add more fun alien creatures music and so on.
Everything else like the Biggs Scenes are straight up removals with the threads seen throughout the film pointing to their existance and interwoven.
I think you feel a bit conflicted about the fact Greedo was not always there? You can’t get rid of Greedo I agree so no need for Jabba 😃
been looking for this scene can’t find it… Is the graphic on the screen a map of the detention block prison?
