In the universe of Star Wars, there is a lot of debate on, who shot fist Han or greedo.

In star wars episode 4, a new hope. When the character of Han Solo is introduced, he is confronted by a bounty hunter named Greedo.

After a short exchange, were Greedo tells Han that he is going to turn Han over to Jabba the Hut, who has put a price on Han's head. Greedo then says "I've been waiting a long time for this"

To this Han simply responds "I'll bet you have."

Han then shoots Greedo, killing him, and walks off.

In the special addition of the Star Wars trilogy, George Lucas, changed it so that Greedo shoot's first, and Han retaliates by shooting him.

George Lucas claims he did this because, he wanted Han to be a good guy. And if Han shot first, it would be hard to then make him the hero.

I have to disagree with this. I mean yeah Luke Skywalker is your run of the mill good guy, and wouldn't hurt someone unless they hurt him. But Han Solo comes from a world of crooks, bandits, and criminals. Han knows that if guys like greedo catch him, they could hurt, torture or even kill him. And he's right to think this way, as most star wars fans know, Han ends up frozen in carbonite.

Han cannot take any chances. He needs to be tough to survive, and that is why it makes sense for Han to shoot first.

Anyway, in the grand scheme of star wars, this is just a minor thing. But this was my two cents about it. what do you guys think, leave a comment. and if you liked this fallow me for more opinions and speculations.
