Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

Continuity mistake: When Anakin is crying on Tattooine, he starts to cry and the tears are running down his face, but then they disappear and his face is completely dry, then there are more tears, and the same thing happens again.

Continuity mistake: When Obi-Wan is talking to Anakin before they enter the nightclub, in the shots facing Anakin, they're standing in the middle of the doorway. In the shots facing Obi-Wan, they're standing by a wall. (00:20:55)

Continuity mistake: In the bar on Corascant, Obi-Wan cuts off Zam Wessell's arm. Her arm is on the floor and it appears that it is cut off at her mid-forearm (a little past her glove). But in the scene where she is hit and killed by the toxic dart, her arm appears to be cut off at the elbow.

Continuity mistake: During the fight with Jango Fett, when Obi-Wan's hands are tied, Obi-Wan jumps up to kick Jango. Before Obi-Wan hits Jango, Jango fires off a shot. The blaster bolt is headed straight for Obi-Wan, but then it disappears mid-frame before it hits him.

Continuity mistake: When Anakin and Padmé are talking to one another in the field, Anakin says, "Well, then they should be made to." In this shot, there's a ribbon in Padmé's hair that can't be seen during the rest of the conversation, even though it should be visible, because of its position. (01:46:55)

Continuity mistake: When Anakin says, "Jedi business. Go back to your drinks." at the nightclub, he is standing next to the bar, but in the previous shot, he was several metres away from it. (00:22:55)

Continuity mistake: When Dooku is about to kill Obi-Wan, Anakin blocks the blow. In the next shot showing Obi-Wan, their light sabres are interlocked in a different position from the previous shot. (02:01:30)

Continuity mistake: During Shmi's funeral, the lights in C3PO's eyes are not on. (01:27:45)


Continuity mistake: When the acklay first attacks Obi-Wan in the arena, he is standing with his back against the pillar. In the next shot, the pillar is to his right. (01:42:20)

Continuity mistake: When Obi-Wan and Count Dooku are duelling, in the second shot after Padmé and the clone trooper run away, the positions of their lightsabres is different from the first shot. Dooku's lightsabre is on the other side of Obi-Wan's, and strikes it higher up. (02:01:10)

Continuity mistake: When Obi-Wan and Senator Amidala shake hands in Amidala's apartment, in the first shot, they are standing in front of a doorway, and there's a small table and a couple of chairs by to the corner behind them. In the next shot, Obi-Wan and Amidala have suddenly moved to the right side of the doorway, and there are no chairs or table by the corner. Anakin, Dormé and Captain Typho have changed position as well. (00:07:50)

Revealing mistake: After R2-D2 begins to drag C-3PO's head across the arena, there's a shot of several Jedi fighting. A man wearing a dark brown tunic falls over dead, but if you watch closely, you can see that he was never actually hit by any laserbolt. (01:50:15)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where, because of the laser blasts from two of Count Dooku's pods, Padme and a clone fall off the ship chasing Count Dooku, they fall next to each other, then Padme rolls down a dune, with the clone to the middle right of the screen. Later, before Padme tells the clone to gather as many troops as possible, the clone approaches from the lower right corner of the screen.

Continuity mistake: In the overhead shot where Obi-Wan grabs a Geonosian's spear, the Geonosian and the animal (orray) it's riding are directly in front of him. In the beginning of the next shot, the Geonosian and the orray are to his right. (01:43:40)

Continuity mistake: Watch Mace Windu's lightsabre when he is deflecting shots from the Super battle droids on the balcony of the arena. The blade, which is supposed to be purple, has switched colour to blue. (01:46:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dooku's "escort" is shooting at the Gunship you see the ship trying to dodge the shots, but when Anakin and Obi-wan are arguing about Padme the ship isn't moving at all.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Obi-Wan lands on the cloners' planet. Rain drops go from right to left as he walk to the door. In the next 180 degree scene change as he enters the building they are still going right to left. (00:41:35)

Continuity mistake: When Anakin and Padmé are in the dark corridor on Geonosis, Anakin says, "Wait" and holds Padmé back with his right hand, which switches to his left hand in the next shot. (01:33:35)

Revealing mistake: When Obi-Wan is talking to Jango and Boba in their "apartment", Obi-Wan pauses. He's not moving and you can see the back of his head. When Jango walks behind Obi-Wan on the screen, you can see Jango's "shadow" through Obi-Wan.

Revealing mistake: In the fight scene between Obi-Wan and Jango Fett at Kamino, Obi-Wan is seen jumping and deflecting blaster shots as he approches Jango. Look closely, the first shot he swings to deflect never gets fired, and he is left swinging at nothing.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: [To Anakin.] Why do I get the feeling you're going to be the death of me?

Trivia: The first scene in which Obi-Wan and Anakin appear was filmed after principal photography had finished. Ewan McGregor had shaven off his beard, so he had to wear a fake one.
