Revealing mistake: In the shot where Han Solo and Luke jump down the garbage chute, Smoke outlines the end of the corridor, revealing it is a board with the scenery on it.

Continuity mistake: Special Edition: When Han is talking to Jabba the Hutt, when Jabba begins to says, "What if everyone who smuggled for me dropped their cargo at the first sign of an Imperial starship?", Chewbacca can be seen walking behind them. In the next shot, he is suddenly walking next to a wall that was nowhere near him in the previous shot. In the following shot, he is back to his original position.

Continuity mistake: When a confrontional alien thug threatens Luke and Ben interferes, the thug has his hand on Luke's upper arm. In the next shot, his hand is on Luke's shoulder.

Revealing mistake: In the Death Star, when Chewbacca and Han arrive in the hangar, the shadow of Luke and Leia waiting for their signal is visible.

Continuity mistake: When Owen is talking to C3PO, the droid has a wire coming from his head to his back. It's not there in the rest of the film.

Continuity mistake: When the garbage compactor is almost completely closed, Chewie holds the walls with his weapon. In the next shot, he is standing by the wall crying and in the other shot, he is holding the walls again.

Continuity mistake: When the Millennium Falcon escapes from the Death Star, each time we see Chewbacca, the sky behind him is dark grey with a few stars rather than black and and full of stars. Some shots later, the sky is normal.

Continuity mistake: After Darth Vader kills Obi-Van Kenobi, Luke shouts "No!" and then there is a gunfight with stormtroopers. During this, R2-D2 is seen going up the ramp into the Millennium Falcon. But a few shots later, when Han Solo says "Come on!", you can see R2-D2 at the bottom of the ramp and he going back into the Falcon for a second time.

Continuity mistake: When Han is about to fire his blaster at the door of the garbage compactor, Chewie moves away from the door. In the next shot, he is back in his previous position, and moves away from the door again.

Continuity mistake: After Owen buys C-3PO from the Jawas, Luke says, "All Right. Come on." and R2-D2 begins to turn his head/dome. In the next shot, his head is still turning, but his dome is in a different position from the previous shot, evident from the droid's features.

Continuity mistake: When Han and Leia try to use a pole to stop the trash compactor, Leia says, "Help me." Two shots later, Han can be seen lifting the pole. In the next shot, Leia is suddenly lifting it with him, and Han is holding the pole differently.

Continuity mistake: In the trash compactor, Han says, "One thing's for sure, we're all going to be a lot thinner." In the next shot, Han and Leia are both standing in a totally different position. For example, both of them are looking in another direction, and Han's left hand is in a different position.

Continuity mistake: As R2-D2 is rolling through the canyon, he's on a smooth part of the land. He then stops and looks around. When he starts moving again, the terrain has changed and is now full of rocks and pebbles.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Luke finds the remains of his aunt and uncle, in the shots from behind Luke, the wind is blowing from his left. In the shots facing him, the wind is blowing from his right.

Other mistake: During the chasm crossfire scene, Leia says, "Here they come" and points the blaster upwards as she aims at the stormtroopers above. But the laser moves downwards.

Other mistake: In the trash compactor, after C-3PO realises that he turned off the comlink, Leia grabs the bar used to stop the compactor and her hand sinks in and puts a dent in the bar. When she loosens her grip, it returns to normal. No wonder it was useless at bracing the walls...

Revealing mistake: After the Death star, the stick that is used to move the Millennium Falcon is visible when the first TIE fighter attacks it.

Continuity mistake: In the Death Star, when they are running into the Millennium Falcon, Leia tells Luke to come. She is behind a piston of the door but the shot later, she is in front of it.

Revealing mistake: Many times during the film, when someone shoots with a blaster, the shot does not came from the gun. A good example is in the detention block of the Death Star. Luke shoots and the laser comes from 10 centimeters over the gun. Special edition.

Audio problem: In the French version of the film, Han Solo tells Obi-Wan and Luke to go to hangar 49. 94 is written at the entrance.
