It is...but that ruins the intent of Goerge Lucas adding the prophetic line by Wald after the fight.
Exactly. And Lucas has "first dibs," so to speak.
So either junk the earlier story, or give Greedo time on Tatooine in his youth. If Boba can survive a bit of re-editing of his life story, then Greedo can withstand it as well.
And maybe Greedo's reported youth is a reflection of the length of the Rodian year. We always can find a way to get around difficulties...
We can rebulid Greedo's life story. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was...
"I'll be bahk." - Greedo.
He never was back for anakin skywalker, actually.
Besides it sounds like we have an Arnold "greedo" Rodian.
Maybe Vader captured Greedo and had nuero-scientists perform experiments that left his aiming accuracy bad, then sent him off and drugged him with no memory of what happened.
"You don't know the power of the dark side, Greedo."
I think GL is trying to make the GFFA too small. What's next? A young Han Solo meets a wookie child, only to be reunited years later. It's just cheesey.
It's almost impossible to run into the same person twice in a large city. Much less a planet. Much less a star system. Much less an entire galaxy.

Ya right, suuuuuuuuuuuuure...
LFL EU departments will never write something like that.
Chewie is about 170 years older than Han. I don't think they could meet as children.
(But I know you're just kidding.)
And there's 2 Es in Wookiee.
Gosh, I hope you people realize I was joking. Sheesh.
The galaxy is too small. I think that's one reason Lucas cut the scene from the film. But I strongly suspect that we'll soon be accepting it into continuity ( I already do ) if any Lucasfilm sources goes into detail or expands on it, such as the Databank at TOS.
On the other hand, what if there WERE two Greedos? One grew up in the jungle, and one grew up on Tatooine. Both were employed by Jabba. Both approached Han in Chulman's cantina. One shot first, the other didn't.
Um, the Databank is still the same. The scene was cut from the movie. Greedo is not mentioned in any of the adaptations. Where is the problem?
Databanks can be updated, y'know...and some entries have been made that reflect the cut scenes...
Yes. I'm just saying, in the days to come...if any clarification is done on the Greedo situation, it might be in something as small and trivial as the TOS Databank.
