They actually made sure in LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out to have Han Solo indignantly say “Of COURSE I shot first! It was either him or me!”
Well, you don’t need to convince me.
PS: Plus, Wilhelm Scream!
How did I miss this?
PS: YO! DISNEY!
So fix that.
…is so determined to rewrite history itself and declare that Han did not shoot first (which, by the way, is in contradiction to the original script). I suspect that I know the answer, but it’s depressing: George Lucas knows that his only hope for any sort of artistic immortality will be because the Holy Trilogy, and he hates that. So he tortures his movies because, well, he can.
It’s sad, in its way. Also: kind of creepy.
PS: HAN SHOT FIRST.
…now the original Star Wars films could be given a modern make-over and converted into 3D.
Director George Lucas has hinted that the new advances in technology mean it is now a possibility to see all six films re-made.
Please, let it be over. Maybe in thirty years or so a new director will be able to repair the damage that you have done to your own masterpiece. Until then, let it go.

PS: I don’t care what your ‘artistic vision’ says. I don’t care what your ‘evolving sensibilities’ challenge you to change. I don’t care if you are the ultimate arbiter of canon, and even if you were able to control the rest of the world in the same way that you were apparently able to control the t-shirt trade I would still sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world:
Damn your eyes, George Lucas.
