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

Continuity mistake: During the sequence where Obi-wan goes to meet Yoda regarding the absence of Kamino from the Jedi Archives, look closely at the collection of children Yoda is training. While most are human, there is one that is alien, with a reptilian face of dark skin. He sure moves fast, because at first he is at the back in the centre of the group of trainees, in the next shot he is at the front of the group of trainees, and by the end of the scene, he is on the far left, yet we never see him, or any of the other children, move.

As soon as Boba warns Jango about Obi-Wan's presence, Jango tells Boba to get in the ship, the scene switches view, the fight between Jango and Obi-Wan starts and where did the crates go? (00:58:15)

Continuity mistake: When Anakin and Padme are about to eat, Anakin uses the force to levitate her pear-like fruit to his plate. He then proceeds to cut it pretty much in half. However, the piece he sends over to her is much smaller than half - we even see the remainder of the pear on his plate which is substantially larger than it was in the shot before. (00:53:25)

Continuity mistake: When Anakin and Padme are standing outside the Lars' house, we see their shadows projected on to the side of the house (with Anakin's shadow looking worryingly like Darth Vader's). However, in the next shot their shadows have moved about 4 feet to the left, and the shadows on the ground also change size and intensity between shots several times. (01:14:00)

Continuity mistake: When Palpatine is speaking to the Jedi very near the beginning, the ships in the suspended invisible freeways on the background are always going on the same pattern. Notice that there is an elongated ship with a large rear tip, and then two smaller ships always seem to catch it at the same time. This goes on for about 3 minutes. (00:04:15)

During that shot of Padme, over her right shoulder, Ki-Adi can be seen with a green lightsaber. It then changes back to blue when he is on the transport ship deflecting laser shots. (01:56:50)

In the next shot showing Padme, her hair is gathered to one side and hanging over one shoulder, yet we never see her change it. (00:04:00)

Continuity mistake: When Anakin and Padmé embrace outside the moisture farm, there's a dark, round spot in the sand next to them, that wasn't there in the previous shot of Anakin. Anakin can't have been standing on it in the previous shot, because he is standing about one metre away from the position of the spot in both shots (watch his shadow, it is in the same position in both shots). (01:11:00)

The small one had already been carried away in the previous shot, where it can be seen standing in the upper right hand corner of the screen. (00:42:20)

Continuity mistake: In the bar scene on Coruscant, when Anakin is tracking Zam Wessel through the bar, his Jedi braid changes sides - it is on the left side of his head in a shot where he is seen from behind. At all other times in the movie, the braid is on the right side of his head. (00:22:40)

Plot hole: When Amidala and some of the clone troopers get blown out of the ship chasing Dooku, later the trooper approaches Amidala and asks about making their way back to the front lines, but Amidala says they should go to the hangar to help Obi-Wan and Anakin.

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.
