According to legend, that scene in question came about because Harrison Ford had a run of the flu and had to take a serious ****, but they wanted to finish the scene. So instead of dragging out a fight scene, he just ad-libbed shooting him before he messed himself.

Or so the legend goes.

I interviewed Harrison Ford aka "Han Solo" a while ago for the premiere of Cowboys vs. Aliens and quite frankly he didn't live up to my expectations. Maybe because of his age right now.

Especialy when you're a fanboy like me.

So meeting him in person and experiencing his grinchy attitude was kind of a shock for me. So in my opinion the "young" Han Solo would've never shot first, while the "old | grumpy" Han Solo would've creamed Guido and robbed him afterwards.

And as a Bonus, here's a rather funny shot of him at the premiere. Behold his grumpyness:

Sheesh, he really has that "I really just wanna go home and watch Matlock" look about him, doesn't he?

Then again, has he EVER looked as though he's enjoyed his work after The Last Crusade?

As far as Im concerned, Han shot first and this does not bother me in any way.

I saw the original trilogy back in the late 80's on TV when I was around eight or nine, as far as I'm concerned, what I saw then is cannon. Han shot first, and there is no CGI in Star Wars.

Greedo supposedly was one of Jabba's top killers. The scene looks completely idiotic with him shooting first, from that close and missing.

Until he changes his mind and comes back to save Luke, Han consistently acts as a greedy outlaw whose prime concerns are his own survival and money. He is selfish and cunning and he'll spare nothing to make sure he comes out alive regardless of consequences.

In the retconned version, besides how awkward having Greedo shoot looks, he's a lucky dude with little wits. He's a much weaker character.

As for George Lucas' opinion about the thing, yeah, stuff it full of midichlorians.

It changes him from Chaotic Good-ish to Chaotic Good? That makes no difference to me.
No, it makes him Chaotic Neutral with good leanings.

A Chaotic Good character would never, for example, kill a child. Well, maybe not never, but it would be a HELL of a special circumstance.

Where as a Chaotic Neutral character, even with good leanings, would be more likely to kill a child if, in the end, everyone prospers.

Chaotic Good would steal from the mob.

Chaotic Neutral would steal from the mob and kill any of them that got in the way.

It's subtle, but it's important.
