Han Solo did NOT shoot first

At least that's what George Lucas says. According to him, Greedo has always shot first.

I don't even see the point of the argument. It was clear Greedo was to kill him. It doesn't matter who shot first it was self defence either way, and even if Han shot first it was no cold blooded kill, it was a him or me situation.

Whats the big deal? It makes no difference what so ever.

It's a black and white morality thing.

The hero is never supposed to swing/shoot first.

As Lucas has aged, his morality seems to have shifted to a very black and white vision, and he's changed his work to reflect this.

Compare the amount of people Indiana Jones kills in the first several movies to how many he kills in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

For whatever twisted reason, Lucas seems to now believes heroes should never, ever kill.

Maybe I'm just some weirdo minority Star Wars fan but frankly I've never cared who shot first: one way or the other. Heck it was a while before I even noticed Greedo shot first in the special editions.

The reason people care is that it fundamentally changes Han's character.

If Greedo fires first, Han is just a regular hero, probably Chaotic Good.

If Han fires first, he's somewhat of an anti-hero, more Chaotic Neutral with good leanings.
