Han Solo (Harrison Ford) is cornered in the Mos Eisley cantina by the Rodian bounty hunter Greedo (Paul Blake), and Han shoots under the table to kill Greedo. The 1997 release of the film alters the scene so that Greedo shoots first and misses (with Han's head digitally pivoted away from the laser blast). The scene was changed again for the 2004 DVD release of the film so that Han and Greedo shoot almost simultaneously; this was shortened by several frames for the 2011 Blu-ray. The scene was further modified for the 2019 4K Ultra HD release with the addition of a close-up shot of Greedo speaking (without subtitles),[o] the removal of a reverse shot of Greedo, and a re-rendering of the visual effects.[p]
In the Special Edition, an establishing shot of a bantha herd was inserted, and a CGI beak and extra tentacles were added to the sarlacc. Jabba's dialogue is given subtitles, although C-3PO translates most of his lines. The 2011 edition extended the front door of Jabba's palace, making the door appear three times longer from the outside than it does on the inside. The Blu-ray also added a Dug to the inside of the palace, which was criticized as standing out from puppet aliens in the same scene.
Warner certainly rights past wrongs for 'The Final Cut' here, delivering a truly splendid new Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround track (48kHz/16-bit, and identical on both the HD DVD and Blu-ray versions). 'Blade Runner' finally sounds spatially alive and vibrant, with surrounds that now live and breathe -- just as it should be. (Note that 'The Final Cut' is presented on all high-def versions with optional English and French Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround tracks at 640kpbs, plus subtitle options in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.)
(Note that \"Dangerous Days\" features Dolby 2.0 Stereo audio, and subtitle options in English, French and Spanish. The same is true of all of the video-based extras on the rest of the set.) Disc Three 781b155fdc
