    Han: If they follow standard Imperial protocol, they'll jettison their garbage before they make the jump to light speed. Then we just float away.

    Leia: Along with the rest of the trash.

    Re: The Star Wars Thread

    CHECK OUT THESE ERRORS IN THE FILMS

    • Continuity: Footage of R2-D2 turning his head skeptically during the Jawa auction is used twice.
    • Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When C-3PO and R2-D2 are in the control room of the Death Star, as the storm troopers get the door open and go storming in one of the storm troopers hits their head on the door.
    • Continuity: In the original theatrical release, there is the scene where Grand Moff Tarkin gives the order to destroy Princess Leia's home planet, Alderaan. But when the laser bolt from the Death Star is fired at Alderaan, two separate explosions take place, not one, and some rubble that is fired from the planet during the first explosion disappears when the second explosion is taking place.
    • Continuity: Most of the times, when Luke or Ben ignite or deactivate a lightsaber, the saber is not shown igniting or deactivating; just the sound effect his heard. And the times when it IS shown, even though it is supposed to be one shot, the character or his/her body part is in a slightly different location after the weapon is ignited than before the weapon is ignited, indicating two separate shots.
    • Revealing mistakes: When Luke activates his light saber after Obi Wan gives it to him, the reflection on C3P0 only shows the hilt, not the blue blade
    • Continuity: When Han Solo is 'interrogating' Jabba the Hutt, Jabba yells: "Come on!" and jerks to the left. As he jerks, we see something small and dark appear right where his animated head is. The dark thing is in the shape of a crescent moon and is clearly Jabba the actor's head, not fully covered by the animated figure of Jabba that was added to the picture later. Since Jabba was re-animated for the 2004 DVD release, that is the only time it is seen.
    • Continuity: In the scene where C-3PO and R2-D2 take over the control room, three guns are leaning against the little window that overlooks the hanger. But in a few different shots, there are four guns.
    • Revealing mistakes: Actor visible through R2-D2's eye when in the Sandcrawler.
    • Audio/visual unsynchronized: Just before Alderaan is destroyed, Governor Tarkin asks the Princess "You would prefer another target, a military target, then name the system!" In the reaction shot of the Princess you can see Tarkin's mouth moving but there is no sound.
    • Continuity: Luke's rag as he cleans up C-3PO and R2-D2.
    • Miscellaneous: As Luke cleans R2-D2, watch C-3PO in the background. When Luke jumps back, surprised by Princess Leia's message, C-3PO slips off the steps (but recovers in time not to ruin the shot).
    • Continuity: Han Solo jumps into garbage compactor a few seconds after Luke jumps in. After landing, Solo tries to blast the door, which ricochets around the compactor for a few seconds. Luke tells him to forget it "I've tried that already." Luke did not have enough time to regain his footing, look around, shoot the door, and watch it ricochet before Solo landed behind him.
    • Continuity: In the scene with the oil bath in Luke's garage, C3PO is holding a rag. We cut away to R2D2, then cut back to C3PO, and the rag is gone. Then cut to R2D2 again and cut back to C3PO, then the rag is back.
    • Miscellaneous: Tatooine is an all-desert planet with no large bodies of water - or any large water sources whatsoever. Yet somehow, in many of the C3PO and R2D2 wandering the desert scenes, dark clouds appear in the sky. Clouds like this couldn't form without evaporation from a massive water source Tatooine certainly does not have.
    • Revealing mistakes: The Jawa's eyes are obviously just light bulbs.
    • Continuity: After C-3PO and R2-D2 escape from the Blockade Runner, the Blockade Runner has vanished from the Star Destroyer's underside tractor beam hatch. This is most evident in the last frame of the scene that shows the Star Destroyer flying by.
    • Continuity: Rebel pilots have a radar in their X-Wings they use to target enemy fighters. However, in at least one scene, this radar depicts the "bent wing" Darth Vader model TIE fighter as the target, when in actuality the pilot is shooting at a standard model TIE fighter.
    • Continuity: When Vader is strangling the officer aboard the "consular ship", a stormtrooper in the background holds his blaster at waist level in one shot and chest level in another.
    • Continuity: When C-3PO is separated from R2-D2 on Tatooine and walking among the sand dunes, clear skies and cloudy skies keep trading places between shots.
    • Continuity: The hologram of Leia that Luke discovers changes for one repetition as Luke and C3PO discuss it.
    • Continuity: When 3PO explains how the tractor beam is powered (in later versions like the Special Edition only), his voice is of a higher pitch than in the rest of the film, indicating an obvious dub.
    • Continuity: In the first shot of the Millennium Falcon, the ship is missing its radar dish.
    • Continuity: When Luke is practicing with the lightsaber in the Millennium Falcon, his lightsaber is green. He turns it off to talk to Ben and when he turns it back on, it is back to its "proper" light blue. This mistake is only in the 2004 DVD release.
    • Continuity: C-3PO sustains a dent on his head during the Sandpeople attack, but the dent appears, disappears, and swaps sides frequently during the movie.
    • Continuity: Luke's sleeve when he is lying unconscious after the Sandpeople attack.
    • Continuity: Items on Ben's table as he watches the hologram.
    • Continuity: The shrubs on the edge of the hole in Luke's desert home.

    -------
    MORE........

    Continuity: When Ben gives Luke the lightsaber, and Luke activates it, the cape hanging on the wall behind him disappears while the saber is active, and re-appears when it is shut off.

    Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Although Tatooine has two suns, the angular distance between them is quite small, so only very large objects would cast two distinct shadows.

    Continuity: A cloud appears over one of Tatooine's suns too quickly.

    Continuity: Shot of Princess Leia and C-3PO monitoring the Rebels' attack on the Death Star has been reversed.

    Revealing mistakes: Rubber sole of Chewbacca's foot visible as he follows Han Solo in the Death Star.

    Continuity: The shot of R2-D2 being propped for reading the Death Star plans is a mirror image.

    Continuity: The shot of Darth Vader dueling Ben and saying "You should not have come back" is a mirror image - the three silver buttons on his chest plate are on the right instead of the left.

    Continuity: As the two spaceships are flying over Tatooine in the opening sequence, sunlight strikes Tatooine from above. However, sunlight is hitting the two moons from the left.

    Continuity: Red Leader's helmet mike switches sides several times just before he crashes.

    Factual errors: Denis Lawson's name is misspelled "Dennis" in the credits, and was not fixed in the 1997 special edition.

    Incorrectly regarded as goofs: It is frequently claimed that upon returning to the Rebel base after destroying the Death Star, Luke exclaims, "Carrie!" when he hears Leia (Carrie Fisher) call "Luke!" Sound designer Ben Burtt has confirmed that, after extensive listening, it appears to be "Hey" or "Yay"; 'Mark Hamill' reports that he said, "Hey! There she is!" but mumbled the last word. Yet, trained lip readers report only two syllables being spoken and they look like Carrie.

    Audio/visual unsynchronized: When Darth Vader says to Tarkin, "I told you she would never consciously betray the Rebellion," he then continues to gesture as if still talking.

    Continuity: The windows of the TIE fighters are shaped differently when viewed from the inside and the outside.

    Continuity: The windows at the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon do not match when viewed from outside and when viewed from inside.

    Continuity: After C-3PO and R2-D2 split up on Tatooine, C-3PO has an oil streak down his right side. When he comes across the large skeleton in the sand, the oil streak has switched to the left (film was flipped). When he is calling and waving to the Sandcrawler, the oil is back on the right side.

    Continuity: As Luke prepares to board his fighter prior to the climactic space battle, he brushes his hand along the underside of the wing. The markings on the wing clearly indicate it is "Red One," shown by the one red stripe. However, during the battle it is repeatedly established that Luke is in fact "Red Five," and exterior shots of the spacecraft model have five red stripes. This is corrected in the special edition by adding the scene of Luke talking to Biggs. They start talking under red one and continue to walk to Luke's fighter. This scene was cut from the original.

    Continuity: When the Falcon is escaping the Death Star, they are pursued by four fighter craft. After three of the fighters are destroyed, what should be the lone remaining craft is next seen accompanied by another. The second craft apparently reassembles itself just long enough for this one fly-by, as it is not seen again (this was corrected in the Special Edition, as only one TIE fighter is visible in the shot).

    Revealing mistakes: During Kenobi's final lightsaber battle with Vader, Kenobi tips his lightsaber downwards, right before a scene change. The white "glow" that should be there isn't, showing the stick-like prop the actors used in filming. There is a small white light at the tip, too. This was not fixed in the Special Edition, but it was finally fixed on the 2004 DVD.

    Continuity: When the Millenium Falcon is pursuing an enemy fighter after discovering that Alderaan was destroyed, Han Solo repeats several times that the fighter is not yet within range to fire, yet it is shown to be quite close; in several battle scenes later in the movie, enemy fighters are destroyed at similar or even longer ranges.

    Continuity: The pitcher in Luke's hand while he is talking to Uncle Owen changes hands a few times.

    Incorrectly regarded as goofs: During the final Death Star battle, Red Leader says, "Stay there, I just lost my starboard engine" shortly before we see his fighter get hit. However, he may not have lost it due to a hit; it may have had a mechanical failure that just came at a really bad time.

    Continuity: The blue panels on R2-D2 appear black when he is in the X-Wing with Luke in space. This is a blue screen shot which effectively makes R2's panels transparent. In the Special Edition, they left them as black but the newly added CGI X-Wing shots with R2-D2 are blue.

    Continuity: In the trash compactor, the metal bar that Leia uses to try and brace the walls is buried in debris. When she needs it moments later she is already resting her hands on it and it is easily obtainable.

    Continuity: When R2D2 and C-3PO are in the escape pod, the rotation of the pod and the view rearward of the star cruiser don't agree.

    Audio/visual unsynchronized: When Luke, Ben, and the droids first enter the cantina and Wuher the bartender yells, "Hey! We don't serve their kind here!" his voice does not match his lips. (His voice was redubbed by an American due to his thick cockney accent.)

    Audio/visual unsynchronized: In the first scene with the landspeeder, C-3PO does not speak, yet gestures as if he is talking.

    Revealing mistakes: When Darth Vader releases the admiral and he slumps on the desk, the force of the impact makes the whole set wobble.

    Revealing mistakes: Just before Leia and Luke swing across the chasm in the Death Star (and at other times), the "blasters" they are shooting are seen to eject shell casings. This is because the guns used in the movie are just dressed-up blank-firing prop guns.

    Continuity: Upon our first view of the cockpit in the Millennium Falcon, a pair of golden dice can be seen hanging from the ceiling. After the jump to hyperspace the dice are missing.

    Miscellaneous: In the music in the ending credits, a trumpet overblows and hits a wrong note

    Revealing mistakes: When Luke and Han are fighting storm troopers while trapped in the corridor leading to Leia's prison cell, make-up can be seen smeared all over the collar of the storm trooper suit that Han is wearing.

    Revealing mistakes: As Princess Leia is about to undergo interrogation by a droid in her cell, the needle bears the legend "Made In England" (of course, England could be a small planet on the outer edge of the Empire, famous for its medical suppliers).

    Continuity: When leaving the Yavin base, many of the rebel pilots are wearing brand new helmets. In the scenes that follow the helmets are clearly old and battered.

    Revealing mistakes: During a gun battle just before Luke and Han Solo escape down the garbage chute, some close-ups of Luke and Han show flesh-colored make-up smeared from under their chins onto the white plastic Imperial armor they are wearing. These makeup smears do not appear in longer shots, but show up in a couple of close shots during the scene.

    Revealing mistakes: At the start of the Vader vs. Ben lightsaber battle, when Ben turns his on, a cord can be seen that runs up Ben's sleeve.

    Revealing mistakes: After a Stormtrooper stuns Leia in the opening scene, he walks over to inspect her. However, when he tells his companions to inform Lord Vader, the stripes on the tube-like part of his helmet are missing.

    Continuity: In the Special Edition, as a figure passes in front of Luke and Biggs in the rebel hangar, R2D2's position jumps as he is being lifted up to the top of the X-Wing fighter (right side of the frame). This is a result of editing out a section of the scene where Red Leader mentions having known Luke's father. The passing figure is intended to mask the edit, but the jump in R2's position reveals the edit. This is mainly evident in the wide-screen format.

    Continuity: On the way to the turbo lift to the detention area, the position of the rifle Han Solo (dressed as a stormtrooper) jumps from shot to shot.

    Revealing mistakes: When Luke is searching for the runaway R2D2, a rope can be seen dragging a droid that passes in the foreground from right to left.

    Continuity: In the escape from Mos Eisley, Obi-Wan is visible in the background, out of position, with a green light shining on his white shirt, making it appear green.

    Revealing mistakes: Leia blasts a hole in the wall to escape the detention level, leaving the remains of bars at the top of the hole. When Luke jumps down the garbage chute, his feet hit the bars lightly, making them shake, since they are made of foam.

    Continuity: When Luke returns to the Lars homestead to find it destroyed, in all shots from behind Luke (or from his point of view) the wind is blowing from his left; all shots facing Luke show it blowing from his right.

    Revealing mistakes: The arm of the crane supporting the floating torture device is visible for a second or two when it enters Leia's cell.

    Continuity: The position of Luke's head and arms while he's unconscious.

    Continuity: For the 1997 Special Edition, Industrial Light and Magic made CG models of the X-Wings (based on the "Red 2" filming model, Wedge's ship) and the Millennium Falcon (based on the filming model built for The Empire Strikes Back (1980)). Thus in the new, CG Special Edition shots, Luke's X-Wing incorrectly has two red stripes on each wing (instead of five), and the Falcon has the two extra landing gear bays on its underside it didn't *originally* have until Empire (it also has a slightly different paint scheme).

    Continuity: In the escape from Tatooine, Chewbacca'a sash disappears and reappears between shots.

    Revealing mistakes: When Princess Leia grabs the bar to stop the compactor, her hand puts a dent in the bar itself.

    Revealing mistakes: After Vader strikes down Obi-Wan by the hangar door inside the Death Star, Vader's lightsaber is revealed only as a white stick. The lightsaber's red glow is gone and you can clearly see the white pole as the actors used it on the set. This mistake has been corrected for the CGI-enhanced special edition and DVD edition, but is still visible in the old VHS and Laser Disc versions.

    Continuity: In the Death Star conference, the back of Tarkin's chair is higher in the wide shots than it is in the close-ups.

    Continuity: When Luke and his uncle are talking at supper he takes the cup of blue milk away from his face and in the next shot when he asks, "He knew my father?" the cup is at his mouth again and he is again taking it away.

    Continuity: When Han, Luke, and Leia meet the group of stormtroopers just after seeing the Millenium Falcon, Leia's hair is falling apart, but when they meet up again at the ship, it has been fixed.

    Revealing mistakes: When R2 is being picked up by the Jawas after he is stunned and has fallen onto his face, a Jawa's sleeve pulls up revealing a portion of the actor's bare forearm.

    Continuity: Just after R5D4 "blows a fuse" when the droids are purchased from the Jawas and C3PO recommends R2D2, we see R5D4 behind R2 (as R2D2 stands against the sandcrawler). In the next shot, R5D4 is once again beside C3PO being taken back by the Jawas.

    Continuity: Just after Leia has been rescued from her cell on the Death Star and says sarcastically, "Great Rescue!" as they are being fired at, her fringe is smoothed away from her face. The next time we see her part of her fringe is falling across her forehead, and in the shot after that it is back in place.

    Revealing mistakes: When Obi-Wan activates his lightsaber to fight Vader, he is clearly just holding the saber so the long end points directly at the camera, and rotating it slowly to create the illusion of the blade appearing.

    Miscellaneous: When Vader interrogates the ships captain at the beginning of the movie he eventually strangles him and his body goes limp indicating that he has died. However, in the next shot when Vader throws his body into a wall he can clearly be seen putting his hands out to protect himself from the impact.

    Crew or equipment visible: When the Falcon is on approach to the Death Star's docking bay, you can see the support prop under the vehicle. This was not corrected on the DVD releases.

    Continuity: When the Death Star is approaching the Yavin Base to superlaser it, the times to arrival at the laser firing point don't even come close to matching the ones on the clock on the monitor of the control room.

    Revealing mistakes: In the 2004 edition, in the duel between Vader and Ben, if Vader's lightsaber was so visibly redder, then why did it not have a reflection on his mask?

    Continuity: Even after Darth Vader's TIE's laser hits R2, he appears undamaged for the rest of the Battle of Yavin. He doesn't even appear damaged until the return to the base following the Death Star's destruction.

    Revealing mistakes: In the Special Edition, when Luke and Obi-Wan first enter Mos Eisley, the shadows (real and CGI) indicate the sun is near overhead. However, the large CGI beast that is passed has a shadow that indicates it is several hours later. Shadows appear consistent after that.
