Harrison Ford, Galaxy’s Most Lovable Grump, Addresses the “Who Shot First” Debate

Sorry about the mess.



If you feel strongly about one of the most oft-debated issues in the nerd universe, Harrison Ford probably has a Han Solo-esque eye roll for you, princess. In a Reddit AMA on Saturday, Ford was asked what really happened in that Mos Eisley cantina, and surprisingly, he doesn’t think Greedo’s to blame.

Judging from Ford’s interactions with fans during the AMA, he’s grown no less sassy in his old age.  When asked

I think we would all like to know: Who shot first? Han Solo or Greedo?

Ford responded,

I don’t know and I don’t care.

There we have it, sportsfans! The debate is still as open as the belly of a tauntaun, although Han Solo himself says it’s a non-issue. Other semi-surprising facts from this weekend’s Q and A? Ford himself actually likes snakes, and no, he does not carry a whip or keep a walking carpet around the house. Disillusioning, I know.

The actor also encouraged participants to watch his new environmental docu-series Years of Living Dangerously and take action against climate change, although God knows how I will be able to focus on the environment with pressing issues like Greedo v. Solo left unresolved.
