Corrected entry: When Luke is standing over the trap door in Jabba's palace, it appears to be at some distance from Jabba. After he falls in, the scene shows Jabba's platform from a different angle, and the trap door is almost directly in front of Jabba's platform.
Corrected entry: Look at the ewok that first meets the Princess. You can see the actor's normal pink thumb sticking out of the costume while he is holding the helmet.
Corrected entry: When the Ewoks start worshipping C3PO as a deity, Han Solo tells him to use his "divine influence," but C3PO refuses saying that it is against his programming to impersonate a deity. Later, though, Luke instructs C3PO to tell the Ewoks to threaten to his magical powers - impersonating a deity - which C3PO does, apparently no longer against his programming.deatc
Corrected entry: Special Edition: In the first shot of the Bantha herd crossing the Tatooine desert, the second Bantha from the left has no head. Only the horns are there.
Corrected entry: When the Rebel fleet is assembled, there are two Calamari cruisers being shown. (The really big ships). But later, when the fleet is going to jump to hyperspace, the small fighters move first and the big ships move after. But when the big ships move into hyperspace, the two Calamari cruisers are gone.glapp
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie., When R2-D2 plays the message, the stage lights are reflected in Jabba's eyes.
Corrected entry: During the battle on the skiff, Luke kicks the air and his opponent a few inches away falls back.
Corrected entry: When Luke and Vader activate their sabers and clash them, there is a shot of the Emperor laughing. During this shot, the two lightsaber blades can be seen going through each other.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the slave dancer is arguing with Jabba, in some shots of her, one of her breasts has popped out of her costume.
Corrected entry: In the scene right after Ackbar says, "It's a trap!" tie fighters start swarming the Millennium Falcon. But if you look at the very next shot, four tie fighters at the bottom of the screen appear out of nowhere.
Corrected entry: Look at Leia's sex slave costume carefully in the shot of her hip/hand next to Jabba's twitching tail. Notice how there are no panty lines, right? Then look at the scene of her running to the gun on the Sail Barge - her skirt blows back, revealing a pair of dark panties underneath.
Corrected entry: Notice the eyes on Darth Vader's helmet throughout most of the movie. Then notice the eyes on his helmet in the scene were Luke is getting crispy-fried by the Emperor. When Darth Vader is looking from his son to the Emperor and back, the eyes are much wider and less menacing looking. That is to give the audience the image of concern and goodness.
Corrected entry: During the attack on the Death Star, Lando says, "Watch out. Squad at .06." and Grey Leader says, "I'm on it, Gold Leader" and shoots a TIE. Then Wedge says, "Good shot, Red Two".
Corrected entry: When Luke cuts off Vader's right hand, wires are exposed suggesting that Vader's hand was bionic. However, as Episode 3 shows, Anakin's right arm was the only limb that was left intact and shouldn't have been bionic.
Corrected entry: During the speeder bike chase, Luke jumps off his speeder, and when he hits the ground, you can see him bounce on something, probably a pad or cushion for the actor to land on.
Corrected entry: In the lightsaber duel in the Emperor's throne room, when Luke evades Vader's strike by somersaulting backwards onto the catwalk 3 meters above him, you can see that the actor/stuntman actually somersaults down from the catwalk by the way his hair flies (watch frame by frame). Then the shot is just shown backwards.
Corrected entry: In the space battle, when Lando says "Fighters coming in!" the millions of TIES come in. Watch in slo mo - a TIE can be seen going through the Millennium Falcon.
Corrected entry: It is indisputable from multiple explanations throughout the movie and from the 3D graphic used by Admiral Akbar in the rebels' war room that the Death Star's shield emanating from Endor protects the Death Star, not Endor itself. Yet, shuttle Tyderium requests and receives deactivation of the shield expressly for the purpose of landing on the forest moon. If use of the code was simply a checkpoint or other imperial confirmation procedure, deactivation of the shield would not have been necessary, much less discussed.
Corrected entry: When the droids enter Jabba's throne room, R2-D2 stops by the stairs, but as soon as the camera is off him, he rolls out on the main floor. As seen in "Attack of the Clones," Artoo uses his third leg to get down stairs, but he couldn't have done it that quickly.
Corrected entry: When entering the Death Star's center Lando orders Wedge to go for the energy regulator at the north tower. But since they are in space there is no northern direction because it takes a planet and its magnetic field to pinpoint north. And it is highly unlikely that the Death Star would have such an magnetic field since it would be quite different from that of a planet, considering that it is full of technology that might create magnetic fields itself.
Corrected entry: When the rebels blow up the bunker and the shield generator at the end of the battle on Endor, the explosion is enormous, and appears to scorch huge amounts of the area around it, but when Han and the rebels run out of the bunker before the explosion, they run about 20 feet before it goes off. There's no way they would have survived that huge of a fireball.
Corrected entry: When Han was frozen in carbonite in "The Empire Strikes Back", there were straps around his upper arms, which were not removed before he was frozen, like the handcuffs were. But when he's unfrozen this film, the straps are gone.
Corrected entry: In Jabba's dungeon, Han says to Chewbacca, "Chew... Chewie.", but his lips don't move.
Corrected entry: When Oola the dancing girl is trying to get away from Jabba, we can hear her talk, but her lips don't move.
Corrected entry: In the first shot of the scene where the Emperor tells Vader to send the fleet to the far side of Endor, the stars seen through the great window move very fast. In the next shot, they don't move at all.
Corrected entry: When Han was frozen in carbonite in "the Empire Strikes Back", his arms were bound by a leather strap. But when he is unfrozen, his arms are free.
Corrected entry: When the Ewok steals the speeder to distract the stormtroopers (first time code), he gets on it, starts it up and takes off at a high enough rate of speed that he is left dangling horizontally from the handlebars. In an earlier shot (second time code), however, we see that the throttle for these bikes is a foot pedal which he couldn't have reached in the first place. How did he get this thing moving?
Corrected entry: Several times during the speeder bike chase, the rails for the camera are visible on the ground.
Corrected entry: When Luke asks Leia if she remembers her real mother, she says yes, and that she died when Leia was very young. She also says that she was very beutiful, but sad all the time. In Revenge of the Sith, Padme dies in childbirth, so unless Leia has super newborn memory, she couldn't remember her mother.
Corrected entry: When Luke is fighting Boba Fett on the prisoner skiff, Boba fires a lasso to tie up Luke. Luke uses his lightsaber to cut himself free from Boba. Luke does not remove the remains of the lasso around his body and in the next shot he is completely free to jump onto the other skiff.
Corrected entry: In the Ewok village, Leia's hair is long and loose. During the final battle a short while later, it's now tightly braided and coiled in numerous strands and done in an elaborate style that would take hours to arrange. It's unlikely she would have the time, the inclination, or the resources to have her hair so stylishly coifed.
Corrected entry: After the ambush in the shield generator bunker there is a cut to outside where you'll see lots of stormtroopers and the captured rebells with their hands above their heads. However, a white and black dressed soldier (speed biker?) stands to the right of the captured rebells - also with his hands in the air.
Corrected entry: Right after C-3PO has informed the rebels they can still beg for their lives a ship flies in between Jabba's caft and the one Luke and Han are on. It has no shadow, yet the other ships have long ones.
Corrected entry: After the shot of C3PO talking to the ewoks in the scene in which the ewoks surround Han, Chewie, Luke, C3PO, and R2-D2, there is a shot of two ewoks talking. The first ewok says in plain English "That guy's wise."
Corrected entry: When Vader throws his lightsabre at Luke during the duel, watch in slow motion: in the first shot of Luke, the blade is coming out of the wrong end of the hilt.
Corrected entry: The idea that Han, Luke and the gang would jeopardize the mission by wasting time looking for Leia in the forest and hanging out with the Ewoks as long as they do is insane. They have a thousand ships on route to destroy the Death Star and they decide to go after one missing soldier?
Corrected entry: Watch as Lando and Wedge are flying into the main reactor. Right as Lando is coming around the reactor you can see a glimpse of Emperor Palpatine's face and his right hand within the blue and white explosion of the reactor, still with lightning bolts around him.
Corrected entry: In the Special Edition, when the first of Jabba's henchmen is thrown into the Sarlacc pit, the Sarlacc has reverted to its original design (without the beak). Then when the next one gets thrown in, the beak has returned. Later on, when it burps after eating Boba Fett, the beak has vanished again.DaveJB
Corrected entry: During the final celebration scene, Artoo is all fixed again, but who fixed him? We know from Part 5 that Han, Leia and Chewbacca had no idea how to fix droids (not forgetting the poor job Chewbacca did with Threepio). Threepio couldn't have because he didn't even know how to put his own leg back on in Part 5. The rebels who went with them were only trained as fighters and the Ewoks weren't intelligent enough. And Artoo was fixed when Lando arrived.Gavin Jackson
Corrected entry: This can only be seen in the widescreen version: in the wideshot where Luke jumps from Jabba's prisoner's skiff over to another skiff, Lando is hanging underneath the prisoner's skiff, and although the skip casts a shadow onto the sand, Lando's body doesn't.
Corrected entry: This is only noticeable in the widescreen version, but during the scene where Luke levitates Threepio there is a wide shot of the droid in midair about to start his descent. If you look closely to the far left you can see Chewbacca's head emerge from behind an Ewok hut. Not bad, considering we've already seen him hanging from a log alongside Han and Luke.
Corrected entry: After the Rebels have been captured, C-3PO walks out from behind a tree. An officer says, "Bring those two down here." However, you can't see R2-D2 anywhere until after the order is given. How did the officer know there were two of them?
Corrected entry: When Chewbacca goes to engage the hyperdrive, he does it by flipping overhead switches. Yet in the past the hyperdrive is engaged with a large lever in the center console. (Another mistake is Han squeezing 3 levers together to go to light speed, yet other times he pulls a single lever).
Corrected entry: EV-9D9, the droid that assigns C-3PO and R2-D2 to their duties in Jabba's palace moves its mouth when it speaks. But when it says, "We have been without an interpreter since our master got angry with our last...", as it continues, "...protocol droid and disintegrated him", its mouth does not move.
Corrected entry: When a damaged Rebel ship is heading towards the bridge of a Star Destroyer, an Imperial officer begins to run for cover, as does Admiral Piet--immediately afterwards. In the next shot, Piett is further away from the window of the bridge than in the previous shot.
Corrected entry: During the battle on Endor when the walker gets hit by the swinging logs you'll notice that the walker crushes before the logs actually hit.
Corrected entry: When Han says, "You stay here, we'll take care of this," you can see a man's head in the background as 3P0 begins to exit the shot.
Corrected entry: In the entire sequence involving Luke and Vader's final duel in the Emperor's chambers, the blades of their lightsabers (presumably made of light) cast shadows on the floor.
Corrected entry: Admiral Ackbar displays the 3-D map showing that the Death Star's heavy defense is a shield generated from Endor. Indeed, this is why Darth Vader's shuttle, at the very beginning, needs a code confirmation to have the shield taken down so he can land on the Death Star. Han Solo's strike team, however, wished to land on Endor, the moon around which the Death Star was orbiting. There is no mention of Endor being protected by a shield; just the Death Star itself. Why did shuttle Tyderian need a code clearance for Endor?Matty Blast
Corrected entry: When Han strikes Boba Fett's jetpack and it goes off, note the trajectory of his flight: When the pack fires, he is standing only slightly bend over, so the jet should carry him upward, not straight forward.
Corrected entry: When Luke is on Jabba's skiff, he gets shot in his bionic hand. If you watch in slow-motion, you will see that his hand sparks before the laser even hits it. Also, the laser is heading for his wrist, but the sparks explode from higher up.
Corrected entry: Throughout the time we see Jabba, his tail appears to be relatively dry (at least the final couple of feet or so). However, when Leia is strangling Jabba with the very chain he enslaved her with, his tail thrashes about madly, glistening moistly in the light and making a thick slimy sound.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: When Luke is slicing all the guys over the Sarlacc pit with his lightsaber, he cuts one of the guards. If you pause it quickly, when he rolls down into the pit you can see the actor's mask come off and roll away revealing his blond hair and face. (This may only be in the original version.)
Corrected entry: As R2-D2 and C3PO are being led to Jabba, the camera pans R2-D2 out of the picture. C3PO then walks down a small set of stairs. Shortly after, R2-D2 is panned back in. How did he get down those stairs?
Corrected entry: The Rancor pit is directly beneath Jabba's throne room, so that huge solid iron gate that releases the Rancor should logically rise through the floor of the throne room, yet it doesn't.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Luke is chasing the last Imperial Scout on the Speeder, he approaches two trees with very little room between them. He turns the Speeder on it's side in order to squeeze through them. This would only work if what he is flying is wider than it is tall, i.e. an X-wing fighter. By turning the Speeder on its side, he makes himself wider, giving himself less of a chance to survive the maneuver.
Corrected entry: I think that this is only on the Special Edition version. What is that annoying little black spot on the left side of Emperor Palpatine's face? This takes place while the Emperor is sitting on his throne and talking to Luke (he is looking out of the window) about his friends failure. It is like this error on the side of his hood that the restoring people forgot to edit out.
Corrected entry: This is in the "Special Edition" one, in the very last few scenes as the Death Star has been destroyed it shows all the different cities celebrating. I believe it is the shot of Corascaunt city, you can see a Storm Trooper crowd surfing over all the people.
Corrected entry: In one of the scenes where Vader and the Emperor are trying to turn Luke, the Emperor is trying to get Luke to "strike him down" with his lightsabre. Luke finally gets annoyed enough to give it a try, but as he swings down to slice the Emperor in half, Vader suddenly whips out his sabre and blocks the blow; then the camera cuts to a nifty closeup of the crossed sabres and the Emperor laughing. However, according to that shot, the Emperor should be dead. Look carefully at the position of the sabres: Vader's (red) is on top of Luke's (green) - a position which should have driven Luke's sabre straight into the Emperor's body.
Corrected entry: Look at Jabba: he is slimy, slimy slimy, but only around his mouth, nose, and upper stomach. His arms look dry. When he bats Threepio with his arm, the droid gets a notable amount of green goop on his armor. However, whenever Jabba pulls Leia to himself, he pulls her close; her body gets smooshed against his multiple times, and yet she somehow manages to stay completely dry. Unless there are major - not to mention unmentioned - time shifts in which she either cleans up or the slime dries up and crumbles off, there is no way Leia could stay clean.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: In the scene where the stolen imperial shuttle is flying past the star destroyer the bridge of the ship looks massive, yet in episode 5 the millenium falcon clips onto a stardestroyer's bridge and looks a lot smaller.
Corrected entry: Why does Leia acquiece to Jabba's horny demands? Knowing her from the other movies, she would have been resisting him at all times. However, as it is seen in the Sail Barge, if Jabba only so much pulls her chain (and he obviously is not strong enough to toss her around with the chain), Leia runs from the window, up to his throne, and presses herself eagerly against him. Unless Jabba had been up to something with her before Luke showed up, this is a plot hole.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: When Jabba pulls Leia from the window on the sail barge, the chain is attached to the back of the collar on her neck. However, when she runs to him and jumps onto his throne and presses her body against his, look carefully--the chain is attached to the front of the collar.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: Why does the Imperial Fleet give up as soon as the Death Star blows up? They still have more than enough firepower to wipe out the Rebels' ragtag fleet.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Admiral of the rebel fleet indicates that the ships should wait for his signal before entering hyperspace to go to attack the death star all of the ships make the jump immediately.
Corrected entry: When Luke is in the pit fighting the Rancor, he finds himself trapped in a tunnel with a locked door at one end and the approaching Rancor on the other. To save himself, he picks up a skull and throws it at a button on the far wall, which brings a heavy gate down on the Rancor, killing him. Why does Luke, who by this point has basically mastered the Force, pick up the skull? He could just move it with his mind.rbryant73
