Revealing mistake: When Bavmorda and Raziel struggle for control over Sherlindrea's wand (up in the tower Ceremonial Room), lightning bolt shoot out of the wand's tip, and a monolith (among other things) is blasted. The monolith looks like it has been pieced together from cast plastic parts; the fragments' edges are too smooth.

Continuity mistake: When Elora is floating down the river, the close shots show her head standing out of the bundle, but the close shots don't.

Revealing mistake: When Cherlindrea starts levitating Elora into Willow's arms (the distanced shot, not the one where Willow takes her), you can, if faintly, see the two wires by which the bundle was pulled up.

Continuity mistake: When Madmartigan comes rolling down as a huge snowball and hits the wall, snow splatter through the window and hits Willow's head making his hair wet. But a few seconds later when Willow comes out of the hut his hair is dry. (01:13:20)


Other mistake: When Madmartigan runs aways from the dragon, he cuts the catapult and launches a stone against a baddie, who falls off his horse. Watch the guy behind, he is the worst stuntman: He slowly steps off his horse and then suddenly throws himself to the floor for no reason at all.

Revealing mistake: Whenever Rool and Franjean have been blue-screened into the movie, the ground does not react to their movements. This is particularly noticeable when they are standing by the base of a tree, surrounded with dirt and pebbles, and when the entire group of brownies are dragging Willow and Meegosh through the dirt.

Other mistake: The two headed monster's heads are pretty big. Big enough to swallow a person whole. But when Val Kilmer jumps on one to impale it, the sword comes out of the bottom of the monster's head. For this to happen, the sword would have to be unbelievably large, larger than a man, which he would be unable to wield anyway.

Continuity mistake: When Elora is put on the cradle of branches in the river, two big branches in front of her swap from straight to fallen between angles.

Revealing mistake: During a battle at the castle where a troll turns into a huge 2-headed monster, Willow charges with a sword. However, the sword wobbles; it's a rubber sword.

Willow: What are you doing?
Madmartigan: I found some blackroot. She loves it.
Willow: Blackroot? I am the father of two children and you never, ever give a baby blackroot.
Madmartigan: Well my mother raised us on blackroot. It's good for you. Puts hair on your chest. Doesn't it, Sticks?
Willow: Her name is not Sticks. She's Elora Danan, the future empress of Tir Asleen and the last thing she's gonna want is a hairy chest.

Trivia: Pat Roach - General Kael - intended to do the stunts by himself, but there was one thing that prevented this: "Insurance - they wouldn't let me." So horsemaster Greg Powell did the stunts for him.
