Angry Birds Star Wars Tumblr: Greedo Shoots First
Rovio Entertainment will stick to changes made in 1997 re-release of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Han shot first. Every longtime Star Wars fan believes this. Of course, Star Wars creator George Lucas changed that in the 1997 theatrical re-release of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Upon running into nemesis Greedo inside the Mos Eisley Cantina, Han Solo narrowly avoids being shot, and retaliates with a laser blast of his own, instantly killing Greedo in the process; originally, Han kills Greedo before the bounty hunter can react. It's one of the most controversial changes to the film, one that drew a wedge between Lucas and his fans.
Turns out, developer/publisher Rovio Entertainment will stand by George. A recently-posted image on the Angry Birds Tumblr page showcases the classic scene with Greedo getting his. As you can clearly see, there's smoke billowing from the business end of Greedo's blaster, clearly suggesting he, of course, shot first. Seriously, is nothing sacred?
Angry Birds Star Wars will release on iOS and Android November 8.
