Star Wars Cantina scene, extra special addition

No, that's not a typo.

Looks like Lucas has re-redone the cantina scene.

And Greedo doesn't shoot first this time!

Re: Star Wars Cantina scene, extra special addition

Part of me wants to scream at the sacrilage of sullying such a classic with crass commercialization. The other part wants to go - Hahaha LOL!

Re: Star Wars Cantina scene, extra special addition

Isn't it ironic that the tagline is "Celebrate Originality"...but they are using something old and classic... or un-original.

I don't have idea who those people are besides Snoop Dogg. That's enough, though.

The dude who shot Greedo was Jay Baruchel.

He's been it a metric buttload of films over the last couple of years...

Other folks include:
David Beckham (talking to Greedo), Daft Punk (the robot-head dudes), Snoop Dogg with the lightsaber, Franz Beckenbauer (former German soccer coach is standing at the back talking with an alien after Greedo gets shot), Noel Gallagher & Ian Brown are the dudes tossing the discs, Ciara is the girl by the bar, and DJ Neil Armstrong is the dude in the white jumpsuit.

I must confess I didn't know who half of those people were without some google-fu!

But I did recognize Becks, Baruchel, and snoop right away.
