George Lucas has modified the Greedo scene in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope again, for a new 4K version now available on Disney+. A close-up shot of Greedo and a new line have been inserted just before the shootout.
According to Disney, the change was made before Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney. Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo says it was made on the occasion of a 4K restoration of the movie. So it’s presumably Lucas’ ultimate version of A New Hope.
This is the fourth time Lucas changed this scene. In the original version, Greedo didn’t shoot at Han.
