Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Continuity mistake: After the speeder chase, everyone lands in quicksand. In one shot, 3PO is buried headfirst. In the next, he has flipped and his upper body is visible.

Continuity mistake: When Rey is shown for the first time while undergoing training in the forest she falls to the ground face-down. When she gets up her clothes are soiled with dirt as expected, but in all shots after that, in the same forest sequence, her clothes are perfectly clean again.

Continuity mistake: When Rey enters the Emperor's vault on the Death Star she is wearing her satchel, slung across her body. When she falls out backwards after seeing Dark Rey she is still wearing it, when she stands to confront Ren, it's gone.

Continuity mistake: When Rey receives the talisman from the young alien who asks her who she is, the chain sits on the collar of her vest differently between shots.

Continuity mistake: Despite Rey having several struggles with the storm troopers and going through quicksand, when she gets to the cave her outfit is very clean.

Suggested correction: His scar fades on screen when Rey heals him on the Death Star. As she heals the wound in his stomach, she also heals the wound she gave him the year before in The Force Awakens. It's an intentional detail.

He has the faded scars since the beginning of the movie.

Scars do fade over time (and Star Wars is a universe in which you can attach an artificial limb and leave no visible marks), but they are present throughout the film.

More trivia for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Question: How did Palpatine come back? Cloned? Or somehow survived the Death Star explosion, which seems unlikely.

Jon Sandys Premium member

Answer: It is not said exactly how he came back. He says that he had died before which presumably is him dying in ROTJ. The most we get is the reference to Sith ability that some consider unnatural.

It is not said how he came back, but I get the idea that he was using the Force to keep himself alive. At least that's the message I was getting when I saw that Palpatine's fingers were wilted away. And I thought that the power he was using was urging his life to go on, but his physical appearence was being dragged behind.
