Before & After the Special Editions: Han and Greedo (Part 1) Stuart Tullis
Change is a part of life. It’s a part of growing up. Seasons change. Feelings change. Even friends change as we move from school to school, job to job, town to town, or even simply through the natural progression of events. But until the end of the last century, there were some things we took for granted would never change. Then came the Star Wars Special Editions, and even our presuppositions changed.
In truth, Star Wars has been changing since the first releases of the original film in 1977. There were different audio mixes with various voices in familiar roles even then. Most fans are aware that “Episode IV” and “A New Hope” were not in the opening scroll of the original cut; these were added in a later release. These changes, however, are usually overlooked (quite possibly because the earliest copies available on home video already included these early alterations).

Mitchell Stein: Last week I discussed Ezra and Zeb’s complex friendship, which I speculated would lead to some very interesting story arcs. This week, we return to focus again once more on Ezra and Zeb, but not quite in as entertaining a way this time.
As it being just the third episode of this brand-new series, Fighter Flight was pretty dull for me, especially in comparison to Spark of Rebellion and Droids in Distress. There’s not much more character development, which this show so urgently needs, and the story itself was rather dull.
We’re brought into the marketplace where we are introduced to a character named Morad Sumar, who seems to have a connection with Ezra from his past. When Morad is captured, Ezra and Zeb set off to save him, thwarting the Imperial troops once again, and knocking ‘em out with space pineapples. Really.
