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)

Suggested correction: His lightsaber is always blue, although he does help Kit Fisto board the gunship. For a moment, it could look like Kit Fisto's green lightsaber blade is coming from Ki Adi Mundi's hand.

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.

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.

Other mistake: How is it that one slash on Amidala's back ripped off the entire midriff of her shirt, and a sleeve? (01:47:00)

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

Question: After the clones were discovered, Palpatine used the Separatist-Republic tension as a excuse to take control of them, but was the Separatist movement real? He could've faked it from the beginning just to take the clones out himself knowing that he would have power because of the senate. Or was the movement real at first, and he later used it to take control of the clones? The attempt on Padmé's life (which caused the Kamino reveal) besides being the price that the Viceroy requested to enter the Separatists I suppose, was to provoke the war, what do they achieve then, if they didn't know the clones would be discovered?


Chosen answer: Palpatine was playing both sides. As Sidious he was controlling and helping the separatists (which sprung from the actions of the trade federation) and as Palpatine he was defending the Republic. Both sides did not know they were being played and both sides thought their cause was "real".
