Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

Continuity mistake: In the scene on Geonosis where the droids are closing in on the remaining Jedi, the camera keeps cutting close and cutting back out. In only two of these changes is a blue Twilek (Aliens with tentacles on their heads like Bib Fortuna) visible. She has disappeared in the other camera angles. (01:56:00)

Continuity mistake: The Nimoidian mouths are inconsistent with The Phantom Menace. The mouths of Nimoidians (Nute Gunray and his assistant) work inconsistently to how they did in Episode 1. In this film the centre of the mouth moves outwards rather than the edges moving out. (01:47:35)

Continuity mistake: When Anakin and Padme are talking in the star freighter, in the shot where Anakin says, "You're exactly the way I remember you in my dreams.", Padme lowers her head. In the next shot, her head is straight, and she repeats the movement. (00:34:30)

Continuity mistake: As Anakin and Amidala are landing on Tattooine, the sun on the set and the sun reflection off their ship are in different directions. The double sun would not account for this, as they are not far enough apart. (01:03:45)

Continuity mistake: After Padme shoots the Geonosians off the chariot, we see a shot of Anakin slicing down come droids. When he turns his body around to face the camera, we can see that he is using the incorrect lightsaber hilt, instead using what looks to be the one that is broken in the factory earlier in the film, judging by the black grips on it. (01:51:30)

Suggested correction: The lightsaber he is using was given to him by other Jedi, they threw one each to him and Ben so I doubt very much it is that particular lightsaber from earlier.

Revealing mistake: When Amidala and Anakin are eating and he cuts her a piece of the fruit and "floats" it back to her, the bite appears in the fruit a split second before she actually eats it. [This appears to be fixed in rereleased versions]. (00:53:40)

More trivia for Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

Question: When Anakin and Padme get married, Anakin is wearing an outfit that is often seen on Jedi and is displaying a Jedi Padawan's hair braid. Do he and Padme not care that the man who performs the wedding is seeing him (as Jedi are not supposed to have relationships and marry)? Why not disguise him? It's a huge risk to let even one person see a Jedi getting married.

Answer: Agolerga, who officiated the wedding, would have known who both people were, especially Padme. Remember they were also keeping the marriage secret because of Padme's position as Senator. Assuming Agolerga was aware a Jedi can't marry, he may simply not care or agree with the rule. Also, as a holy man of Naboo, Anakin and Padme may have trusted him with their secret.
