When George Lucas first wrote Star Wars, he was going to have Wookies in Endor but he thought that the movie was going to be so unpopular the he would never release "Return Of The Jedi," so he put Chewbacca in "Star Wars" and the Ewoks in "Return of the Jedi." See more...

Continuity: During Luke and Vader's conversation on Endor, as Vader says, "That name no longer has any meaning for me," he is pointing the hilt of Luke's lightsabre at Luke's chest. In the next shot facing Luke, the hilt is nowhere to be seen, even though it should be, because of its position in the previous shot.
Continuity: When Jabba pulls Leia's chain in the sail barge, Bib Fortuna is standing on the right side of the screen, a few meters away. He then takes one step forward, but in the next shot he is suddenly standing behind Leia, as he's pushing her against Jabba. He was too far away from them in the previous shot to have reached them that quickly.
Revealing: When 3PO and R2 are being assigned to their droidly duties in Jabba's palace, there is a shot of a poor droid having hot irons branding his feet. The irons are never closer than an inch from the droid's feet, and the steam that allegedly comes from the burning is obviously being shot out of holes in the droid's feet.
Continuity: When they get ambushed in the shield generator complex, an imperial in black appears from the right of the screen in front of the ledge with the railing. Han throws the container in his hands at the imperial. If you notice, the imperial actually begins to jump over the railing before the box even hits him.
Other: During the final confrontation with Vader on the Death Star, Luke bashes a catwalk railing with his light saber several times, but there are no burns, marks, or indentations on it at all. Considering the power of a light saber (Qui Gon melted a steel door in Phantom Menace), some damage should be visible. Only when he hacks off Vader's hand does the light saber slice through the rail.
