It's Weird That We Don't Know What 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Is About

  It's Weird That We Don't Know What 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Is About Every time I hear, from Disney or Lucafilm or any other source, that "Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker" is the conclusion of the "Skywalker Saga" it throws me off a little bit. Because I just can't make myself understand how this movie is going to be the end of a story. I don't feel the excitement that I should about the impending climax of a story I've watched unfold over my entire lifetime. How could I? Even now that the final trailer has been released, you'd be hard pressed to find anything that feels like the first two entries in this new trilogy moved things toward some big finale.

The first Star Wars movie has arrived on Disney+ , and there's another change to this controversial scene . Of all the many changes that George Lucas made to the original Star Wars trilogy over the course of its various reissues and rereleases, there are none as controversial as Greedo shooting

The Han shot first scene has been altered. Again. Since this was a Lucas change, odds are we’ll never know exactly why he did it. And we’re still waiting to get an official spelling on the word Greedo says. Star Wars : A New Hope, complete with new Han and Greedo scene, is on Disney+ .

"Star Wars" fans got an unexpected surprise with the launch of Disney+.

The new streaming service went live on Tuesday with brand new 4K remasters of all the "Star Wars" films, including the original "A New Hope", with some new tweaks.

In one of the biggest changes, the infamous "Han shot first" scene has been edited once again, giving the alien Greedo a new line just before he's killed by Han Solo.

The scene was famously first re-edited in 1997 with the release of the "Star Wars" special editions, having Greedo shoot at Han first, instead of Han shooting him preemptively. Since then, director George Lucas has fiddled with the scene multiple times for subsequent DVD and Blu-ray releases.

  ‘Joker’ Congratulated With Expletive By Ryan Reynolds For Setting R-Rated Box Office Record In Cole Porter’s 1934 song Anything Goes, the composer noted, “In olden days, a glimpse of stocking/Was looked on as something shocking/But now, God knows/Anything goes.” Mr. Porter, meet Ryan Reynolds. Mimicking the grand old Hollywood tradition of congratulating a film for beating your box office record, Reynolds added a distinctly off-color but oddly appropriate twist to his felicitations via Twitter, as Joker has become the highest-grossing R-rated film in history, topping the Reynolds-starring Deadpool and its 2018 sequel.

George Lucas talks about his decision that has split Star Wars fans for decades and we’ve got the details right now on Clevver Newsfeed. George Lucas once again insists that Han shot first and is setting the record straight on why. Coke versus Pepsi. Marvel versus DC. White and Gold versus Blue

Disney+ allows George Lucas to make one last However, Lucas clearly had misgivings about making Solo the kind of man who would shoot first in such a moment, leading to his oft-discussed decision to alter the scene in later versions of Star Wars .

Disney has confirmed to Vanity Fair that new edit was made by Lucas himself prior to the studio's acquisition of Lucasfilm and the "Star Wars" franchise in 2012.

Fans on Twitter generally aren't happy about the new change, but many have been amused by the line Greedo shouts, which sounds like "Maclunkey."

In Bob Iger’s book The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned From 15 Years as CEO of The Walt Disney Company, the Disney CEO claims George “didn’t hide his disappointment” and said “there’s nothing new,” and that in each of the films in the original trilogy, it was important to him to present new worlds, stories, characters, and technologies.
