Continuity mistake: When Bodhi Rook is first introduced on Jedha, there is a fallen statue in the sand, first shown lying on its left, but at the end of the scene, the statue is suddenly lying on its right.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: At the point of the movie where K-2SO slaps Cassian on Jedha, you can see Cassian cover up with his face to cover his smile, as the entire slap was improvised, then a shot with his hand down, and then back to a similar shot of the first one with his hand covering his face.

Continuity mistake: When Baze shoots all the Stormtroopers, he begins walking over to Chirrut. Chirrut is seen placing two hands on the top of his staff, and then puts one hand lower down on the staff, holding it with just that hand. In the next shot, he is suddenly holding the staff with both hands.

Casual Person

Factual error: When they are trying to navigate the shuttle through Eadu, the shuttle abruptly collides with a rock, which causes Bodhi to jolt backwards. If the shuttle hitting the rock had caused the shuttle reduce speed so abruptly, in the way that was shown, then Bodhi would have jolted forwards, not backwards.

Continuity mistake: After the facility on Eadu is ambushed by the Rebellion, Krennic is escorted back to his ship and looks back at Galen Erso's body. When he looks over, Galen is shown with his right leg completely straight and his left leg at an angle, but when he is next seen, a few shots later, it is now his left leg completely straight and his right leg at an angle.

Continuity mistake: When Baze fires the bazooka at the AT-AT, he can be seen lowering the bazooka immediately after firing, but when he realises that the AT-AT is still functioning, the bazooka is suddenly placed back over his shoulder.

Continuity mistake: When approaching the landing area on Scarif, the pilot says that the landing gear is locked in position. Then in a later shot when the ship is just above the ground, that's when we see the landing gear actually emerge.

Continuity mistake: When Jyn meets Saw, in most shots the hose for his mask is well through the loop on his suit, but in one closeup shot the mask is right up against the hose, then jumps back.

Continuity mistake: When Jyn and Cassian are hugging on the beach after the Death Star has fired on Scarif, the first shot from behind Jyn shows her hugging Cassian with one arm, but when the shot cuts to behind Cassian, she is suddenly hugging him with both arms.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: As the shuttle lands on Scarif, the man doing the ground guiding kneels in the dust and thruster wash. From another angle, the man has suddenly disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Galen and Krennic are talking at the farm, in some shots the wind is very strong, judging by Krennic's cape and Galen's hair. In others there's virtually no wind at all. This changes immediately between shots, there's no time for the wind to swell or fade.

Plot hole: The shuttle in the opening sequence is flying to the farm, over Jyn's head, directly to the farm, but somehow arrives after she's got home and been hidden in the cave.

Factual error: After the corvette escapes at the end, Darth Vader is standing at the edge of the hanger, and his cape is fluttering in the breeze. Only problem is they're in space, with no wind, or high enough that the atmosphere is so thin that there's no wind. Or there's a forcefield closing off the hanger from the outside, so no wind. And even if it's that air is rushing out of the ship due to the vacuum, his cape would be blowing towards the hole, not away from it. Plus the troopers behind him would all be asphyxiated - their suits aren't space suits.

Continuity mistake: At the start when Andoor meets Tivik, Tivik's coat over his shoulders keeps moving between shots - on both shoulders, then on one, then both, etc.

Continuity mistake: When Jyn reunites with her father after the attack on Eadu there are a few strands of hair draped in front of her, with some on the left side of her forehead and some on the right, but a few shots later, the strands of hair are now draped evenly.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Krennic is first talking with Galen Erso on his home planet, the coat that Galen is wearing is visibly drenched, presumably from rain water, but later in the scene, when Lyra Erso intervenes, the dampness on his coat is now much lighter.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Director Krennic and Governor Tarkin are discussing testing the Death Star, Krennic says he will not fail and turns around to leave. As he turns, an Imperial officer is seen standing a couple of meters away from him in the background, but in the next shot, the Imperial officer is suddenly right behind him.

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: After Jyn has retrieved the data file containing the Death Star plans, Krennic is shown walking in a hallway with two other Death Troopers and pushes a button to open a door. The door begins to open before Krennic actually pushes the button to open it. While his hand is not seen touching the button, the sound of the button being pressed is still heard.

Continuity mistake: When the Death Star fires on Scarif, Jyn and Cassian settle down on the beach and Jyn is shown with her back straight whilst she is kneeling, but in the next shot, she is suddenly leaning more forwards.

Casual Person

Plot hole: At the end, it would be impossible for Cassian to climb up to the platform in his condition and save Jyn from Director Krennic; he wouldn't be able to get through the very fast opening and closing hatch like Jyn did.
