In a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Lucas claims that Han never shot first. Never.
"The controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han Solo, in Episode IV, what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Solo [who seemed to be the one who shot first in the original] to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t. It had been done in all close-ups and it was confusing about who did what to whom. I put a little wider shot in there that made it clear that Greedo is the one who shot first, but everyone wanted to think that Han shot first, because they wanted to think that he actually just gunned him down."Right. Is he just trolling fanboys at this points?
Okay? Now, to be fair, and he brings the point to a head by noting that Blade Runner has been cut "about sixteen times since Sunday."
The best part about the interview? It interrupted a discussion he was supposed to be having with Spielbergo about Indiana Jones 5.
