Artist's Description

In 1977, when many of you weren’t born yet, Star Wars was released, and the (then) young and dynamic writer-director George Lucas had a character, Han Solo, play a smuggler who, when cornered by a bounty hunter, shot him before the bounty hunter had a chance to.

In a subsequent revision “Special Edition” two decades later, George Lucas was older and milder to the point where he no longer wanted to have a ‘hero’ shoot first in an altercation. The resulting adjustment meant that the bounty hunter shoots FIRST and MISSES from a point-blank distance.

When you hear increasingly older Star Wars fans talk about Han Shooting First, it’s not so much about being geeky, it’s actually about whether old deluded filmmakers deserve the right to reimagine and reinterpret scenery just because they’re … well… stupid.

Where was I? Oh, yeah. Harrison Ford is Han Solo, and he walks with a casual aura of confidence that says, over THIRTY YEARS later, that this man will shoot first and not give a crap. At all.
