Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

Other mistake: When the Falcon gets hit by an asteroid, Leia falls and is caught by Han. She tells him that "being held by you isn't quite enough to get me excited". As she is saying this you can clearly see Harrison Ford mouthing her exact words. (00:44:05)

Other mistake: In the original version, when the Rebel Transport ship leaves Hoth before the ion cannon is fired, an X-wing flies past it, and you can see the transport ship through one of its wings. This has been fixed in the Special Edition.

Other mistake: When the Star Destroyers are seen for the first time, in the second shot, some of the TIE fighters that fly over a Star Destroyer are transparent.

Other mistake: In the original version, in the first wideshot of the Super Star Destroyer, on the right side of the screen, the light of a Star Destroyer (but nothing else of it) can be seen just flying through space for two seconds before it disappears. This mistake is fixed in the Special Edition.

Other mistake: In the ending credits, Denis Lawson's name is misspelled "Dennis." The filmmakers made the same mistake in "Star Wars."

Suggested correction: And in the Star Wars corrections page, you will find that mistake with the explanation that Lawson has used both Denis and Dennis in his career.

Other mistake: When the Millennium Falcon escapes Hoth and is pursued by the Star Destroyers, frantic movements cause them to collide. Watch the interior shot of the Star Destroyer as everybody is thrown around. Near the bottom of the screen one of the computer consoles comes away from the wall and is hurridly pushed back into place by a controller! (00:35:55)

Other mistake: When the Falcon speeds away from Hoth just as Darth Vader steps out, watch carefully as the Falcon exits the hangar. You will notice that a very small spot of the Falcon is visible through the roof of the hangar as the Falcon exits and flies upwards.

Other mistake: After Vader cuts through a pillar with his lightsabre in the beginning of the duel, the hole in the pillar is much bigger than it should be. (01:37:35)
