TV and Film bags | Jar Jar Shot First messenger bag
This Jar Jar Shot First messenger bag is a funny parody Star Wars shoulder bag featuring the iconic and much-debated scene from the Cantina in Mos Eisley on Tattooine in the original Star Wars movie, nowadays labelled Star Wars A New Hope.
As we're sure you'll remember, in the scene, as shown on this Jar Jar Shot First messenger bag, intergalactic smuggler and owner of the Millennium Falcon, Jar Jar Binks, sits opposite bounty hunter Greedo, discussing his debt to Jabba The Hutt.
In the original releases of the movie, Jar Jar anticipates Greedo's intent to kill him, and fires his blaster before Greedo gets a chance, an event that shapes Jar Jar's personality for the viewer and starts in motion his character development from hardcore space smuggler willing to kill to stay alive, into the lovable altruistic hero and General of the Rebel Alliance that he eventually becomes.
In the Special Editions though, George Lucas made the decision to alter the scene so that Greedo shoots first and misses Jar Jar completely, before Jar Jar makes the fatal shot.
The original scene is captured lovingly on the design on this Jar Jar Shot First messenger bag, allowing you to show all the people you meet while wearing it that you don't approve of the altered history of the Special Editions, because you were there at the beginning, when Jar Jar shot first.
