Corrected entry: When Palpatine, Anakin, and Obi-Wan are in the elevator tracks, they jump from the elevator coming down, shoot out a grappling hook then they all go through the door onto the floor of the hallway. They all go in at an odd pace. Palpatine gets thrown into the hallway first, then Obi-Wan and Anakin. But really they should all be getting thrown in at the same time, since only Anakin and Obi-Wan have the grappling hooks and Palpatine is holding onto Anakin's leg, which he should be influenced by him, and get thrown at the same time.
Corrected entry: During the battle between Sidious and the 4 Jedi, just after Sidious kills Tiin(the second Jedi he kills), you can see something in the bottom of the image, crossing from left to right that looks like the head of a crew man.
Corrected entry: At the beginning, when Anakin and Kenobi rescue Palpatine, the two Jedi ride an elevator to the "top of the control spire" to find Palpatine. However, when they leave this room (when the ship is tipping or falling out of the sky), they climb into an empty lift tube and start running down it. After the ship rights itself and the 3 are hanging, an elevator begins plummeting towards them. Where did this elevator come from? They came from the top of the spire, i.e. the top floor, so how did they end up with an elevator being above them?
Corrected entry: After Anakin gets his arms and legs mutilated by Kenobi, he is transported to a facility to adapt the bionic parts to him. Amidala is delivering the twins about the same time. It's obviously all for the sake of drama, but it makes absolutely no sense that a society so technologically developed as to have invented hyperspace jumping, had not invented a simple glass cover, or even an umbrella to shield Anakin from the rain while transporting him, nor painkillers or a way to sedate him through the medical procedure. Amidala is delivering the old-fashioned way, so apparently they haven't invented cesarea either. This is unacceptable, even for our universe.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Zett Jukassa (the young padawan) saves Bail Organa from the clones, he kills 3 clones, but when he goes to kill the fourth, the clone flies back before the lightsabre hits him. This is better seen in slow motion.
Corrected entry: When Beru is showing the baby (Luke) to Owen, in the shot facing them, Owen straightens almost fully up. In the beginning of the next shot, he's still crouching, but he's crouched down more than in the previous shot, best seen from the height difference between him and Beru.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Emperor declares that "the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire", his hands change position between shots twice.
Corrected entry: This appears in all light sabre battles. Why is it that the only thing a light sabre can't go through is another light sabre? aren't light sabres just a focused beam of light? And why do light sabres reflect blaster shots? ?They are just a laser as well.
Corrected entry: When Padmé is lying on the "bed" at the medical centre at Polis Massa, she changes position a few times her head moves up/down the black "pillow"
Corrected entry: General Grievous takes a big risk in breaking the bridge window exposing it to space knowing that his boss, Lord Sidious, was also on the bridge and could possibly be sucked out before the shield closed.
Corrected entry: When Anakin, Palpatine and Obi-Wan are hanging in the elevator shaft, the elevator comes rushing towards them, forcing them to jump. How did the elevator activate? R2D2 wasn't around (he was in the heap of droids) and at the top of the shaft, after fighting Dooku, the elevator was shut down.
Corrected entry: In the opening shot, the Starship is the only thing floating above the entire surface of Coruscant. However, when the two Jedi starfighters fly underneath the Starship, the entire planet is covered with ships, missiles, lasers, and there is fighting everywhere.
Corrected entry: When Beru is showing the baby (Luke) to Owen, in the shot facing them, Owen straightens up. In the next shot, he repeats this movement.
Corrected entry: When the vulture droids are approaching the Jedi starfighters, Obi-Wan says, "Let them pass between us." As he stops talking, his mouth is still moving.
Corrected entry: When Aayla Secura (the female Jedi with blue skin) is killed on Felucia, in the first shot of her, she's holding a lightsabre in her right hand. In the next shot, the same sabre is clipped to her belt, and her right hand is empty. In the following shot, she's holding it again and there's no lightsabre hanging from her belt. (Even if she carries two lightsabres, it offers no explanation for this specific mistake.)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Anakin and Obi-Wan rescue the chancellor, the chair that Palpatine is sitting in and the pedestal it's standing on keeps changing position between shots, sometimes dramatically. For example, in the second shot of the scene, the chair and the pedestal are standing in the middle of the floor in front of the great window, in the next shot, they are standing on the right side of the window.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the great space battle, Odd Ball says, "Set S-foils in attack position" but his mouth is closed.
Corrected entry: When the Emperor tells Commander Cody to execute order 66, it cuts to a shot of the Emperor looking at a hologram of Commander Cody. The device that Commander Cody is holding doesn't project a hologram in the hologram. Yet when Yoda is talking to the Jedi council on Kyahsak, other members, such as Ki-Adi-Mundi appear as holograms inside Yoda's hologram.
Corrected entry: When Grievous arrives on Utapau after the battle with Obi-Wan & Anakin, he talks with the hologram of Sidious in his disfigured state, but this disfigurement is caused by his battle with the Jedi Mace Windu (as he tells an audience himself later in the film)later on in the film. So really Grievous should be talking to the healthy looking and normal speaking Palpatine.
Corrected entry: When Obi-Wan and Anakin escape from their bounds and tackle Grievous's bodyguards at the beginning of the film Obi-wan decapitates the last bodyguard. But it still lives and is able to fight him. Later when Obi-Wan drops the huge block on the bodyguards, before he fights Grievous, one bodyguard gets up and goes for its weapon. Obi-Wan kills this bodyguard by cutting off its head.
Corrected entry: When Mace Windu is talking to Yoda, Ki-Adi-Mundi and Aayla Secura via holograms in the Jedi war room, as he says, "The Jedi Council would have to take control of the Senate in order to secure a peaceful transition.", his lightsabre is visible. A short time later, when he confronts Darth Sidious, he is carrying a different sabre. (He only has one sabre.).
Corrected entry: In the scene where Anakin is holding onto the ledge in the elevator shaft, with Obi-Wan holding onto Anakin, Palpatine is holding onto Obi-Wan's ankle. When they decide to jump down, Palpatine lets go of Obi-Wan's ankle to free fall. In the very next shot, Palpatine is magically holding onto Obi-Wan's ankle again.
Corrected entry: What the heck happened to Yoda between the trilogies? In Episode III, he was strong, wise, solemn, like Mace Windu. But when Luke meets him in Episode V, he's nearly insane. He says to Luke, "Away put your weapon, I mean you no harm." while cowering to Luke's blaster. Yoda is a Jedi Master & very strong in the Force. Why is he nothing like he was in the 1st trilogy?
Corrected entry: When Aayla Secura, the blue-skinned female Jedi, is killed, in the first shot, she's holding her lightsabre in her right hand (look closely in the lower left hand corner). In the next shot, the sabre is clipped to her belt, but in the following shot, she's holding it again.
Corrected entry: During the Opera scene Palpatine tells Anakin about the dark ways of the force which he listens to without question. However later in the movie when they next meet Anakin asks him, "How do you know about the force?" as if he didn't know that Palpatine already knew about it. Anakin even acts as if he didn't know that Palpatine knew about the force.
Corrected entry: When General Grevious's ship begins to de-orbit and crash, it turns its bow towards the planet's surface. The next shot of the characters inside the ship has them all tumbling towards the bow. This is wrong. Since they are accelerating towards the planet, the force they feel should pull them to the stern of the ship (much like accelerating in a car, the force pushes you back into your seat, opposite the direction of your acceleration). They should have been "falling uphill" in that shot.
Corrected entry: Obi-Wan & Anakin manage to pilot what's left of General Grievous' star destroyer to a survivable landing on Coruscant. As they do, the ship is steered towards a long, straight landing strip in the city. Since when do spaceships & aircraft in the Star Wars universe need landing strips? Everything, including even the largest ships, use advanced hovering technology, and can make pinpoint vertical take offs & landings.
Corrected entry: A physics-related mistake in the scene in which Obi-Wan and Anakin attack Gen. Grevious's ship: As they approach the hangar bay in their fighters, Anakin shoots out the forcefield generator, rendering the hangar bay completely exposed to the vacuum of space. The Jedi crash-land their craft in the hangar just before the emergency doors close on them and then they instantly leap from their respective cockpits to engage the guard-droids. There is no conceivable way to replenish that huge volume of air in the few seconds elapsed between the hangar doors closing and the Jedi exiting their ships. Even if the air (and heat) could be replenished that quickly, the massive pressure difference it caused would've produced a shock wave, and likely ruptured their ear drums.
Corrected entry: When the babies are born they are too big to be newborns. They appear to be 9-11 months old. Also there are no umbilical cords when they are born.
Corrected entry: The cartoon Clone Wars was the only record of General Grievous besides Stars Wars III. In the cartoon, he put his lightsabers around his waist allowing him to kill two Jedi at once, not in his cape, in the movie. Grievous probably would've killed Obi-Wan since he would also have 2 more lightsabers.
Corrected entry: Chewbacca is good friends with Yoda in Episode 3, but joins in with Han Solo in making fun of Obi Wan in Episode 4: " You said it Chewy. Kid, where did you dig up that fossil?" If he was such good friends with the leader of the Jedi Council, why would he later make fun of one of the last remaining Jedi? Maybe he never met Obi Wan but you'd think he would be thrilled to meet anyone who claimed to know the ways of the Jedi. After all, Obi Wan was instructing Luke on the ways of the force right in front of him on board the Millennium Falcon.
Corrected entry: The "ignition" sound for specific lightsabers in this movie, as with the other two prequels, rarely matches up from one fight to the next. For example, when Anakin is a "good guy", his lightsaber sounds just like Obi-Wan's when it starts up. But when he goes in to kill the Younglings, it sounds like Darth Vader's in the original trilogy.
Corrected entry: In the 3 Tantive IV (Senator Organa's ship) hallway scenes, small details in each scene show that they are all the same hallway (red symbol above door, arrangement of metal plates on both sides of door, location of black squares on side walls, location of side doors). The same exact small details can all be found in the hallways Darth Vader makes an entrance into in A New Hope, meaning this is supposed to be the same hallway (that's also been confirmed by official sources - they went to great length to recreate the ship exactly, based on photos of the original set). However, the hallway in ROTS is much narrower.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Plo Koon is killed (the Jedi that dies while piloting an old Jedi starfighter), one shot shows him in his cockpit before it explodes from clone fire. The cockpit window shows that there are three separate window panels, much like the design in the fighters Anakin and Obi-wan fly in the beginning of the movie. The old Jedi Star fighter only has one full window panel.
Corrected entry: Early on in the film we see General Grievous escape from the Jedi by leaving a ship and skipping around in space. It is later established that the General has some internal organs (heart and maybe lungs) when Obi Wan kills him. How did these internal organs survive the vacuum of space, not to mention the cold and radiation?
Corrected entry: For someone who needs a mask in order to breathe, Vader does a good job of screaming loudly while on the operating table.
Corrected entry: The final scene of the movie shows Vader and the Emperor looking out at the Death Star being constructed. This doesn't fit with the storyline as there is almost 20 years between episodes 3 & 4, that is quite a slow construction. Compare this to the time in which the second and more powerful death star is almost finished. Some time could be accounted for through prototype versions and testing, but not 20 years.
Corrected entry: After Palpatine has been rescued the ship starts to sink directly downwards. However there is a cut to Grievous at the front of the ship and everything is upright.
Corrected entry: On the bridge of Grievous' ship, Obi-wan cuts the head off of a magna droid and it keeps fighting. However, right before Obi-wan faces off with Grievous on Utapau, he cuts off the head of a magna droid and it falls dead.
Corrected entry: As Anakin tries to land General Grievous' ship on Coruscant, they are escorted by ships that try to put out the fire on Grievous' ship by shooting liquid on the flames. Given the intense speed at which they are traveling, the liquid should immediately fly backwards in a mist rather than stay mostly in a stream as it leaves the escort ships. (Try throwing water out a car window at 60mph to understand).
Corrected entry: After the crash landing on Coruscant, Anakin, Kenobi, and Palpatine take a shuttle to the Jedi Temple. While Anakin and Kenobi are talking by the shuttle entrance a droid behind them picks up a single piece of luggage. After a few more moments of dialogue the same droid picks up the same single piece of luggage.
Corrected entry: After Padme gives birth, her body was sent to her home planet to be laid to rest. Presumably this is a week or two later. However if you look at her stomach, it is partially inflated - can't be the babies, and wouldn't be gases either, given she's clearly been prepared for burial.Joseph Z
Corrected entry: In the opening battle General Grievous shatters the front glass on the bridge to escape. A metal barrier slides into place to stop the bridge from decompressing. But when Anakin is trying to land the disabled ship the metal barrier is gone and the glass appears to be back in place. If the metal barrier had just withdrawn everyone on the bridge would be being buffeted around to an insane degree by inrushing wind.
Corrected entry: In Return of the Jedi, both Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi were not aware that there was another Skywalker, Leia, until Yoda explained to them. In Revenge of the Sith, it was very obvious that Obi-Wan was holding Luke and Leia was born while he was still nearby. Therefore the fact Obi-Wan did not know about Leia is somewhat strange.pboy2k5
