Greedo gets the last word in ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ on Disney+


Did you know Greedo got the last word before Han shot him? According to the Disney+ version of Star Wars: A New Hope, you bet your green bippy he did.

This news comes thanks to entertainment journalist Mike Ryan who, maybe because demand is too high for The Mandalorian right now (I tried. No joy. Wahhhh), decided to watch Star Wars: A New Hope instead.

But something seems to have changed about the film during the transition to Disney+ — Greedo has a new line which he cheekily utters right before she shoots at (and misses and we know he didn’t shoot first but whatever) Han.

Whatever he said remains a mystery, as there’s no subtitle, but clearly Han shot him over it, so it was probably the Rhodian version of “Your mama.” or something.

You be the judge.

As Star Wars fans know, this isn’t the first time there have been changes to this scene between Han Solo and the Rhodian bounty hunter known as Greedo. In the original 1977 release, Greedo never fired his blaster. He threatened Han, Han said, “I’ll bet you have,” and, boom, Han shot him.

When the special edition was released on January 31, 1997, there was a big change. Han said his line and then Greedo’s blaster fires and misses Han and Han shoots him. Lucas made the change himself, saying “Han Solo was going to marry Leia, and you look back and say, ‘Should he be a cold-blooded killer?’”.

Here’s the comparison.

But this new change? Where did that come from?

Chatter on Twitter is that this is a Lucas-approved change for a 4K remaster, but I think it’s a shame we didn’t get a translation. I mean, what does “Maclunkey” mean? And did he say “Maclunkey” or “Macunkey”?

We asked. Here’s what we discovered.

Of course, we wanted to know if there were other changes. The internet did not disappoint.

Ryan also noticed an interesting note during his viewing. Who the heck is smoking on the Death Star!

Who knew that part of the fun of Disney+ would be people finding new and interesting changes and tidbits of information? The galaxy truly is a wonder.

Disney+ is available now.
