Here’s a lady who’s opinion clearly counts. Ariana Grande gives her thoughts on the who shot first debate.
When it comes to Star Wars, Ariana Grande is a traditionalist. The pop star just tweeted a link to the following video, in which she debates with some aliens about Han Solo’s encounter with the bounty hunter Greedo in the first Star Wars movie, Episode IV: A New Hope. For the uninitiated, Greedo (Paul Blake) confronted Solo (Harrison Ford) in the cantina at Mos Eisley because Solo owed a debt to Jabba the Hutt. In the 1977 version of the film, Solo distracts Greedo with chitchat and then shoots him under the table. In the 20th anniversary digital remaster, director George Lucas changed the scene so that Greedo shoots first and Solo is forced to return fire in self-defense, a misguided attempt to make Solo a more sympathetic character. Now that you’ve got sufficient background, enjoy Grande, in character as Boun T. Hunter, standing up for the original cut while also murdering some aliens.
