Audio problem: When Luke, Han, Chewie, Ben and the droids are in the control room, and Luke says "but they're going to execute her," watch closely: his mouth doesn't move for half the sentence.

Continuity mistake: Just after the scene where R2-D2 is riding shotgun on Luke's X-Wing fighter and is hit by a shot from Darth Vader, there's a shot of C3-PO standing beside Leia in the rebel HQ, and the dent on C3-PO's head is on the right side (it's on the left side throughout the rest of the movie).

Revealing mistake: When Wedge leaves the Death Star trench, the green screen is visible behind him for a few frames.

Continuity mistake: During the shoot out on Tatooine the same stormtrooper can be seen falling in the background from 3 different angles as Han boards the Millennium Falcon.

Continuity mistake: When Luke and Ben enter the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon during the meteor shower, Ben enters the cockpit twice between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Ben says to Han in the Millennium Falcon, "In my experience there's no such thing as luck", you can see Han is resting his arm on the surface near the control panel, but in the next scene his arm is no longer on the surface.

Revealing mistake: During Darth Vader and Ben's lightsabre duel, sometimes you can see a white wire attached to Ben's lightsabre, for example after he says, "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."

Revealing mistake: On the Death Star, before Luke and Leia try to cross the pit, Luke shoots a panel to close the door. Firstly, he shoots beside it, and secondly, after it explodes, no electronic components are visible in it.

Continuity mistake: When Han yells at Chewbacca to "Get in there, you big furry ape", Chewie steps in. It cuts away, then cuts back and Chewie steps in a second time.

Continuity mistake: When everyone is getting in fighters for the final battle, they all have white helmets with blue insignias. However, they aren't wearing them when they're flying.

Audio problem: [Special Edition only] In the scene where Luke and Leia swings across the missing bridge, a number of the shots fired by Leia are "bangs" instead of the laser "zap" sound. The bang is probably from the prop gun used (it shot blanks) and was never dubbed over (until the 2004 DVD release).

Continuity mistake: When Luke and C-3PO run out of the house to find R2-D2, Luke takes out his binoculars and can't find him anywhere. The shot returns to Luke and C-3PO, where C-3PO's arms are by his side. In the next shot, C-3PO's right arm is suddenly raised.

Continuity mistake: Right before Luke yells at Han after he fires his blaster in the trash compactor, there's a wideshot where Han is sitting among some garbage and holding his blaster with one hand. In the next shot, he has turned the other way and is standing, holding the blaster with two hands.

Continuity mistake: When Leia's holo-message is being played in Luke's garage, and C-3PO explains about R2-D2's restraining bolt, the background behind the hologram has been flipped.

Revealing mistake: When Ben and Luke are transporting C3P0 after the attack of the Tusken Raiders, the arm of Anthony Daniels, the actor that plays the droid, is visible during the transition to the next shot showing Ben's house.

Continuity mistake: When the rebel leaders are studying the tactical illustration of the Death Star, it shows a large, round indentation positioned at the Death Stars equator. The Death Star actually has a smaller, round indentation in its northern hemisphere. Can't be due to intentional differences between the plans and the finished thing, otherwise the rebels would have no way of knowing that the vulnerability was still there either.

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, the leader of the fighters (not the group that was to blow up the Death Star, but the leader of Luke's group), got killed. Then it goes back to the home base where Leia, C3PO, etc are watching the action and you hear a transmission from that leader.
