I agree, utter nonsense. Just put the original edit back in and let's move on I say!Yes - essentially setting it up in Solo and still having this edit makes even less sense than before. A lot of people complain that Disney is "ruining" Star Wars, but for me the two changes mentioned above - both by Lucas - are considerably worse than anything Disney has done.
For me it wasn’t so much who shot first (although Han shooting first made him more bad-ass). It was that the changes were executed in such a cack-handed way, it is jarring.I must be the only person in the world who actually didn't care in the slightest who shot first.
He looks like he's really getting into Figrin Dan and the Modal NodesFor me it wasn’t so much who shot first (although Han shooting first made him more bad-ass). It was that the changes were executed in such a cack-handed way, it is jarring.
Greedo’s laser shot is at a weird angle & Han’s head shimmy?
It just looks so weird, it take you out the movie.

agreed the prequels were devoid of any soul whatsoever. the newer star wars arent presented in any IMAX editions we know exist...and im hoping that the IMAX enhanced equipment. that imax actually start releases proper movies in IMAX or..what a waste that will be.Forgot about the shuttle scene. Of all the changes that's actually my number two most hated (after "nooooooo"). Mainly because it removed the "Bring me my shuttle" line which makes Vader sound VERY pissed off. "Tell my star destroyer to prepare for my arrival" - oh f*** off.
It's Lucas' biggest problem - he's more interested in technicalities than how the scene flows, good acting or allowing for happy accidents. At this stage I wouldn't be surprised if he took out the "we're fine, how are you" line.
He's really great at the design and I think the lore too, but he lacks the skill to bring that together in a coherent and fun way.
