Deliberate mistake: When Obi Wan deactivates the Death Star's force field, there's a electronic gauge going down and a sign in clear English with the word POWER - as we've seen in shuttles and other places, they don't use English. The studio decided it was better to show "power" and "tractor beam" in English so that the audience would know what Obi-Wan was doing. The lettering we see in Jedi doesn't really affect the plot, so it doesn't need to be English. Still doesn't really fit though. This is fixed on the DVD.

Other mistake: After the escape from the Death Star, the first TIE destroyed is not shot.

Continuity mistake: When Aunt Beru speaks to Luke about buying droids, there are many shrubs besides Luke. In the next shot, they are gone.

Revealing mistake: After the tractor beam pulls the Millennium Falcon into the Death Star, there's a shot of a MSE-6 droid ("mouse droid") at the feet of four stormtroopers. The trooper in the back right, is holding onto his helmet in a desperate attempt to keep it from falling off.

Revealing mistake: When R2D2 has finished showing Leia's holo-message to Luke, C3P0 says something like "he has become a bit eccentric". When he say that, there is a wire coming from his belly. It was not there before or after.

Continuity mistake: In the control room when Obi Wan decides to leave them, the red beam on the radar behind him points down. When it cuts it is suddenly pointing up. It couldn't have moved that fast.

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.

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...

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.

Revealing mistake: When the droids head towards Tatooine in their escape pod, a rotating imperial ship is shown in the pod's window, getting smaller as the pod moves away. Regrettably, the star field gets smaller at the same rate as the ship, something that would only happen if you were moving away from a photograph, painting etc.

Continuity mistake: When the walls of the trash compactor start moving, the bar Leia uses to brace them is easily obtainable, but in the previous shots, it was partly buried in garbage.

Continuity mistake: Watch Luke's shadow when he walks toward his aunt to talk to her, and when he turns around. In the following shot, where he is walking toward the Jawa sandcrawler, his shadow is cast in another direction.
