Star Wars: Turns out George Lucas added Greedos “maclunky” line to A New Hope on Disney Plus

Update: According to Fandom’s official Twitter account (opens in new tab), the proper spelling of Greedo’s last words are “ma klounkee” which translates to “it’ll be the end of you.” It’s been said before in the Star Wars saga: Sebulba says it to Anakin in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Check it out below.

Greedo’s last words to Han in the Disney+ version sound like the phrase ‘ma klounkee’ which translates to ‘it’ll be the end of you.’ This is the second time it has been said in #StarWars canon, after Sebulba threatened Anakin in Episode I(via @seaniccus) 12, 2019

Original Story: You gotta love the age of the internet, where mysteries never go unsolved for long – even the Maclunky mystery. In the wee hours of the first day of Disney’s new streaming service, Disney Plus (opens in new tab), Star Wars: A New Hope gave us more questions than answers. Fans noticed an additional line of Greedo’s dialogue in A New Hope during the infamous, often-debated cantina scene. Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab), we’ve got answers.

Whether or not Han shoots first is irrelevant in this scene (we know the truth, no matter how often you change it, Lucas), because now we’ve got this. Just before Greedo fires at Han, the alien firmly says, “Maclunky.” 

How…? Who…? How is this something someone decided to do? I can’t even make a clear thought about this. 12, 2019

Naturally, this sent us into a tailspin of speculation. Is Maclunky a space slur? Is it a nickname? Is it a death rite? Why in the Maclunky is it in there? It’s the only piece of Greedo’s dialogue that isn’t translated, so naturally we’re all going mad with wonder.

Well, we don’t have answers to any of those questions, really. But we do know who added it in there. George Lucas, of course. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Disney rep maintains that Lucas “made the change before the property was acquired in 2012.” That means that Maclunky has been canon for seven years, guys. I know, I’m having trouble coping with it myself. If we get any more details as to what Maclunky means, or if it was just an unfortunate last word for ol’ Greedo, we’ll fill you in.
