I can only conclude that George Lucas is a troll of the highest..er.. caliber.

Oh, I'm 99% sure it's massive trolling but somehow it still yanks my chain. There can't be another film-maker alive who thinks it improves a character to remove his complexity. Even at age seven, I got that a mercenary money-grubbing rogue gradually becoming a reluctant hero was way more fun and interesting than a totally good guy doing the right thing because he doesn't know any other way to be. It cracks me up that the guy who made the movies doesn't even know the reasons his character is loved by fans.

And in conclusion, BLAM! *tosses coin* "Sorry about the mess." XD

Well, now I know he's just trolling, because this picture exists.

Hahaha man, he IS a freaking troll isn't he?

It's one of those few fannish things that really bugs me once I think about it, though. I loved Han in the movie when I was a kid, precisely because he wasn't initially the hero guy, he was this sneaky gunrunning SOB who wasn't going to do anything unless he got paid... so when a guy like that does the right thing for nothing, you really get that he's changing and becoming heroic. It cracks me up that Lucas himself doesn't seem to know why Han is a favourite or how arcs of character development work (like, there's no arc if he starts out being just as good as he ends up).
