Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

Corrected entry: When Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon ignite their lightsabers in the Trade Federation ship, you can hear the sound of, not two, but three lightsabers igniting.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The buzzing sound is heard three times during that second yes, but that sound isn't made from igniting the lightsaber. Every time you move the lightsaber with some speed it makes that sound. So the third sound is made when Qui-Gon moves his lightsaber a little to the right.

Corrected entry: As Qui-Gon is weighing his options for payment, Anakin states, "there's a big race tomorrow..." However, the race is the day after tomorrow, as Anakin spends the next day getting his pod ready for the race and another evening follows.

Correction: Anakin says that line during lunch, they go back to the shop to make the deal, Anakin preps his pod-racer that afternoon and when he is talking to Qui-Gon that night, Gui-Gon says "you have a big day tomorrow."

Corrected entry: Near the end of the film during the final lightsaber battle, Darth Maul stabs Qui-Gon in the stomach with his lightsaber blade. When he pulls it from his body, Qui-Gon abruptly collapses to the ground. When he falls, his hands and position change between shots.

xx:xx:xx

jesus32567

Correction: There is a shot in between, and Qui-Gon isn't dead but dying, so could have moved himself.

Corrected entry: When Darth Maul is kicked off the platform by Qui Gon Jinn, his lightsaber blade bounces off of his chest when he lands, but no damage is done to his clothing or body.

Correction: With careful examination you can see that the hilt bounces off his chest, but the blades do not. The blades do not even touch his clothing, thus no damage.

Corrected entry: When Jar-Jar drops the wrench after electrocuting himself we can see it fell into the hole of the engine but he retrieves it in the front intake (jammed, of all things) which is more than a foot away from the hole.

Correction: An engine is not one solid piece. The wrench fell into a hole on top, but went through the various inside openings of the engine and stopped at the end rotor.

Quantom X

Corrected entry: During the meal in Anakin's home, Jar Jar snatches a fruit with his tongue, but in the next shot the fruit is not attached to his tongue any longer (easier to see frame by frame), even though we see him swallow it.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: If you look more closely, or play it in slow motion, you can see that he doesn't manage to take the piece of fruit and that it stays in the bowl. When he swallows, he actually gulps in embarrassment.

Kylantha

Corrected entry: Darth Maul only blinks once, just after he is sliced in half by Obi-Wan.

Correction: It is a misconception that Darth Maul blinks only once. He also blinks just after his lightsaber is cut in two.

BaZeL

Corrected entry: In the opening story text of The Phantom Menace, it refers to Obi-Wan and Qui Gon Jinn as Jedi knights- but Obi-Wan is still a padawan and not yet a Jedi knight.

Correction: He's a Jedi Knight in training and is ready for the trials. Close enough, particularly as the opening text must, by necessity, be brief.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: As the cockpit of Anakin's starfighter closes, his mouth is moving as if he's talking, but nothing is heard.

xx:xx:xx

Kylantha

Correction: His mouth is barely moving. Regardless, people make soundless mouth and facial movements all the time.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: When Darth Maul takes his hoverbike thing after finding the missing Jedi, you can see a pair of tire tracks from a car or truck.

Matty W

Correction: Vehicles with tires/treads can be seen in at least one of the Star Wars movies. Just because we don't see them onscreen is no reason to believe that wheeled vehicles don't exsist on Tatooine or Naboo.

Guy

Corrected entry: The same actor plays Nute Gunray, one of the Naboo pilots, one of the Senators, and the Jedi Ki-Adi-Mundi.

Correction: Information that can be gleaning simply by watching the credits is not good trivia.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: Darth Maul should feel how strong Anakin is in the Force, yet he doesn't mention to his master that a Force-strong boy is traveling with the Jedi. If Sidious had told Maul about Anakin ahead of time, then Maul wouldn't try to hurt the boy with his speeder bike.

Correction: Saying what a character should or shouldn't do is generally a character mistake, if that. Maul was intent on getting the Jedi he was instructed to eliminate. From what we can see he only came close to hitting Anakin nothing else. While he may have been told to watch out for the boy or felt he was strong with the force this is just presumptious and there is no film mistake here.

Lummie

Corrected entry: Jedi are not supposed to have a lot of possessions, yet when Anakin leaves Tattooine, he gets to take a whole pack of stuff with him. Because Qui-Gon is so sure that the Council will want Anakin trained, he shouldn't have asked or allowed Anakin to bring stuff from his old life.

Correction: First of all its not a lot of stuff only a small backpack, second of all the boy would have a hard enough time having to leave his mother, why make it harder on him by denying him a few possessions for the trip.

Andreas[DK]

Corrected entry: In the space battle when Anakin starts the explosion inside the space station, a male pilot says "We didn't did it." It's correct to say "We didn't do it."

Correction: The pilot says "We didn't hit it". Even if he had said the line as the submitter suggests, it would only be a character mistake, since a little slip up like that would be understandable in a situation where you are fighting for the survival of your people.

Andreas[DK]

Corrected entry: During the race, the amount of dirt on Anakin's face change from shot to shot.

Dr Wilson

Correction: Obviously, because as the race goes on he gets more and more dirt on his face. That's common logic.

Corrected entry: When Darth Sidious talks to Darth Maul on the balcony, it is the same as Senator Palpatine's apartments.

Dr Wilson

Correction: That is not in the least bit surprising seeing as Darth Sidious and Palpatine are one and the same. Furthermore, this is not even valid trivia in that it is pointing out something which is obvious to anyone who watches the movie.

Corrected entry: When Obi-Wan and Qui Gon are fighting Darth Maul, they leap onto a ledge where Maul is at. Watch closely as the camera pans out, you can see Maul trip and almost fall down.

Toolio

Correction: Believe it or not but when you listen to the DVD commentary, this is supposed to happen.

Corrected entry: Just before the announcer says, '...that's gotta hurt.' (about midway through the pod race) and again at the end of the race, watch carefully when the shot focuses on the audience cheering and you'll see a giant skeleton head being lifted a bit by the person next to it. (They may have used the same shot twice.) There's no way this prop can be confused with an alien audience member; I guess the extras were bored that day.

JustJudy

Correction: It is not a skeletal head, and it is not being lifted. It is the head of an alien standing up. You can see another member of his/her species in the lower right hand corner.

Corrected entry: After Obi-Wan cuts Darth Maul's lightsabre handle in half, one half falls to the floor. It can't have fallen into the pit, because of Maul's position when the sabre was cut in half. But in the following wideshot, the part that got cut off is nowhere to be seen, and it did not make a sound if it hit the ground.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The half that Obi-Wan cuts off flies into a panel on a wall. If you look closely in said wide shot, you can see the wall panel with smoke billowing out of it.

Cubs Fan

Corrected entry: In the scene when princess Amidala, Qui Gon, Jar Jar and some other characters are recovering the palace, Amidala was sitting in a chair and then she opens some kind of box next to her and takes out a weapon; in the next shot she stands up and it seems as if she is almost going to fall.

Correction: How is this a mistake? People do find themselves off-balance at times.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: When Obi-Wan gets Qui-Gon's light saber and cut Darth Maul in half, when he falls he doesn't fall cut in half. They have to wait until they press standby to get the cut in half dummy. Basically even before Darth maul would fall he would be cut in half.

Correction: Since no one has ever been cut in half by a lightsaber, we don't know that. The two halves could have "stuck" together, from the blood and fluids acting as a glue of some sort. We also don't know the phisiology of Maul's species (Zabrak), so we simply can't make assumptions about how long it'd take for him to fall into two pieces.

Gary O'Reilly

Corrected entry: When Obi-Wan is hanging on to the ledge when he fights Maul, he sees Qui-Gon's lightsaber on the ground next to him. The design of the hilt is the same as Obi-Wan's. No two Jedi have the same hilt design.

Correction: There's no rule stating that Jedi must have a unique design - Jedi build their own lightsabres using whatever design they see fit to use. There's nothing to prevent Obi-Wan from building one similar to his master's sabre.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: After Obi-Wan cuts Darth Maul in half and he falls into the pit, You see Obi-Wan and his lightsaber is off, a couple of seconds later you see that his lightsaber is on, with no sound of it reactivating.

Correction: There is no shot of Kenobi with his lightsabre off - in one shot, the beam follows the line of the wall, making it less clear, but it is there.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: When Darth Maul kicks Obi-Wan off the walkway, he falls off the walkway feet first. In the next shot, he falls down head first.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Firstly, he falls off sideways, not feet first. Secondly, he falls a pretty long way - remember that Maul also falls to a lower walkway (Qui-Gon jumps down to join him), and Obi-Wan still has to leap upwards to get to them. We certainly don't see the entire fall, making it entirely plausible that he twisted in mid-air during the part of the fall that's off-camera.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: When the astromech droids are going to repair the shield generator, two of them start moving towards the lift that will take them up to the hull of the spaceship. One has yellow marks, the other has red marks. In the next shot, neither of them can be seen in the area near the lift, but when R2-D2 rolls out on the hull, both of them are there.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: There is no way to tell how much time is between when the red and yellow marked droids go up the lift and when R2 goes up the lift.

Corrected entry: After Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are gassed at the beginning, the door opens and they come out to fight the robots. During the entire fighting scene, the yellow gas remains inside the room although the door is wide open. In reality it would come out and diffuse.

nightline

Correction: By the time the droids get there, the rather large room has filled with gas, which is still being blown into the room after the door opens; therefore, it only seems like it's not diffusing, since the gas is so voluminous and ever-increasing in mass.

Xofer

Corrected entry: During the Podrace, the announcer says, "Skywalker's been forced onto he service ramp" before it happens.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: It may not have actually happened yet, but the annoucer has probably seen a good number of races and could have been able to tell that Skywalker would be forced onto the ramp.

Corrected entry: Andy Secombe based his vocal performance of Watto on Alec Guinness's performance as Fagin in "Oliver Twist." So essentially, Anakin is passed from one Alec Guinness impersonator at the beginning of the film to another one at the end.

Correction: Andy Secombe actually based his performance for the voice-over on an English 1960's TV commercial for antacid tablets: 'Settlers bring express relief.' The brief he received from George Lucas was for an imitation of an 'Italian second-hand car salesman.'

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film we see two viceroys speaking to TC-14. After the point when Dofine says "I knew it! They're here to force a settlement" if you look closely at TC-14's left shoulder you can see the face of someone, maybe female.

Correction: I've watched this scene closely several times, and the only face reflected in TC-14's shoulder is Dofine's face.

Corrected entry: Similar to the trivia entries for "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" (1977) about the Imperial officer who unleashed the whole chain of events by ordering not to shoot the pod containing the two droids, have you ever thought about that stupid droid TC-14 in "The Phantom Menace" (1999)? Had not she warned Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray and his lietentant about the ambassadors being Jedis, Qui-Gonn and Obi Wan would have forced the settlement and none of all the events in the film would have happened; including the attack to Naboo leading to the finding of Anakin Skywalker and thus that very Imperial officer issuing that order, since the Empire would never have happened.

Correction: This is getting to be extremely coincidental. Even if the droid had not warned the Trade federation that the ambassadors were Jedi they would have noticed easily, and the call to Sidious would have been made in any event. The events may have been slightly altered or delayed in this manner, but the eventuality of the battles would have remained unchanged.

Corrected entry: Anakin's Rodian friend is, according to the original script, Greedo, the bounty hunter blasted by Han Solo in A New Hope.

Correction: No he's not. Greedo's scene (where he's beaten up by Anakin and warned by Qui-Gon that he'll get into trouble with his attitude problem) was cut from the film. The Rodian is named Wald. (http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/wald/index.html).

Corrected entry: Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are up to the same hovercraft to Naboo, but Qui-Gon is walking alone till Obi-Wan comes out from the opposite direction.

Correction: Qui-Gon specifically says "Let's split up. Stow aboard separate ships and meet up down on the planet."

Garlonuss

Corrected entry: When Qui-Gon is walking with Jar-Jar in the city of Tatooine, look at the side, and you will see Luke Skywalker's speeder standing next to two aliens.

Correction: A) This isn't a mistake, if anything it'd be trivia and B) You can't expect Luke's speeder to be the only one of that model ever made. Chances are there are mass produced speeders, droids, ships and weapons in the Star Wars universe, just like there are in ours.

Gary O'Reilly

Corrected entry: During the parade on Naboo, in the shot where Anakin and Obi-Wan look at each other, a girl in a peach-coloured dress is standing behind Anakin and R2-D2. A couple of shots later, the same girl is with a group of children throwing confetti (she can be seen on the right side of the screen). Then she's back behind Anakin and Artoo at the end of the scene.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: It is not the same girl, they are just dressed similarly.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Obi-Wan, Jar-Jar, and Qui-Gonn are in the Gungan watercraft, they lose power for a bit. When they reach the surface later, it shows that the canopy disipates like a force field. If the pod lost power under water, the force field would not have operated drowning the crew.

Correction: Since the watercraft is semiorganic (like all Gungan technology), it no doubt has some sort of failsafe that keeps the canopy closed whilst under water.

Xofer

Corrected entry: During the invasion of Theed, Queen Amidala is looking out of a window. In the wideshot, in the bottom right corner, you can see ILM (short for Industrial Light and Magic) written in what looks like red spray paint on the wall.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Trivia?

Corrected entry: Qui-gon says to Watto, "My ship will be the entry fee." How does he know for sure that the people in charge of registration for the pod race will accept a damaged ship? I realize it's a moot point, since Qui-gon talked Watto into supplying the entry fee.

Matty Blast

Correction: These are Hutts we're talking about - they'll likely accept just about anything of sufficient monetary value.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: At the start, we see Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan running very fast to get away from the Droidekas. Yet near the end, Obi-Wan is cut off from Qui-Gon and Maul by the large number of force fields, and when he tries to run through them as fast as he can to help Qui-Gon, he just misses and is cut off by the last force field. Why did he not just use the super force running trick to get through them all in one run?

Correction: Because he was out of energy. The same could be said about him running to the Force shields in the first place, but Obi-Wan was simply out of energy.

Corrected entry: When R2-D2 shows the holographic plan of the palace, the palace turns, but not the red path.

Dr Wilson

Correction: Not so. The path does in fact change orientation as the palace itself turns. It is most noticeable at the left edge; note how the red line moves from several inches into the hologram but shifts leftward until it is almost at the edge. It is also very evident at the square reverse-C-shaped curve of the path; the lower bar of the reverse-C decreases noticeably in length.

Phil C.

Corrected entry: When the neimoidian vice-roy is watching the battle on a screen Darth Maul comes, but his make-up seems different than during the rest of the film.

Dr Wilson

Correction: "Seems". Only to the person that submitted this, I'm afraid. The fact is that Darth Maul's makeup is the same in that scene as everywhere else in the film.

Phil C.

Corrected entry: When Anakin tries his podracer for the first time, his hair and clothes move as if there was wind. There are three problems with that. First, his pod isn't moving, hence no wind. Second, other persons near him don't seem to be affected by wind and third, it doesn't do that at the beginning of the Boonta Eve race, when they start their motors.

Dr Wilson

Correction: It isn't wind that's causing his hair and clothes to move, but rather exhaust from the pod turbines, which he has just switched on. The other characters aren't affected by it because Qui-Gon and Kitster are out of range to the left and Amidala, C-3PO, R2-D2 and Jar-Jar are out of range to the right. As for why you don't see his hair moving at the start of the Boonta Eve race, it's because his helmet has plastered it to his head and only a few strands are loose.

Phil C.

Corrected entry: After Anakin speaks the last time to his mother, he return with Qui-Gon. There is a water evaporator besides them. On the top, there is something looking like a Pepsi logo.

Dr Wilson

Correction: There is another shot closer to it and it doesn't look like a Pepsi logo.

Dr Wilson

Corrected entry: If combat droids are radio-controlled by a computer on the neimodian ship, why do they need to be spoken to via hologram too?

Dr Wilson

Correction: The droids are powered by the ship, they are given artificial intelligence and thus must be spoken to in order to receive orders.

Corrected entry: During the scene where Anakin is flying the Naboo starfighter we see him telling R2-D2 to switch off the auto-pilot. When R2-D2 does so we can see the red auto-pilot light switch off, but in the next shot it has mysteriously switched itself back on.

Correction: It's the red colour of the dial-displays that signifies that the auto-pilot is on. They stay blue once it is turned off. We have no way of knowing what the central switch with the red light does, so it could turn on and off for other reasons.

Jez

Corrected entry: Darth Maul, like the Jedis, would have amazingly fast reflexes, yet he isn't quick enough to block Obi-Wans death blow. Watch the scene again. Even a normal person could react to that quick enough and be able to block it in time. Yet Maul just casually watches Obi-Wan jump over him and kill him.

Correction: But Maul isn't expecting such a great move from the young Jedi apprentice. He is surprised; caught out by his arrogance. Isn't that the point?

Jez

Corrected entry: At the end when Darth Maul knocks Obi Wan back into the reactor pit using the force, Maul's lightsabre is on. When Obi Wan jumps out of the pit and over Maul, you can see Maul's saber is off. Next thing you see, when Maul gets sliced in half, the lightsabre is back on again.

Correction: This is not true. His lightsabre remains on until he is sliced in two, when it turns off as he falls. It is just out of shot when Obi-Wan jumps, but you can see the red glow.

Jez

Corrected entry: When Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon enter the underwater city they are wet for the first shot but dry in the second. Plus the floor does not get wet.

gandolfs dad

Correction: They do in fact stay wet. The floor is not shown enough to tell is it gets dripped on or not. If they do appear at all drier, this can be attributed to the barrier they went through, which, as it is designed to stop water coming in, would surely remove some of the surface water from their bodies/clothes as they entered.

Jez

Corrected entry: When Qui Gon is fighting Darth Maul in the desert, it shows a view from inside the ship. There are three very thin and closely placed together windows. When it switches to the outside of the ship. There are only 4 very thick windows that are spaced far apart.

Correction: There are 6 windows, split down the centreline of the ship into two groups of three. The view from inside looks through one of these groups. The sizes and shapes match up fine as well.

Jez

Corrected entry: How come droids (with computer brains) CAN'T HIT ANYTHING?!?! Stormtrooper syndrome, methinks.

Correction: When you can field an army of tens of thousands of robots and it's no big deal, accuracy isn't a problem - there's no point putting effort into pinpoint targeting when another 5 dirt cheap droids will ensure you get the job done. When precision is needed, they use the Droidekas.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the film, there are about 30 Federation ships blockading Naboo but after the planet is invaded, only one remains. How does the Federation maintain the blockade with only one ship? And why did they leave only one ship to control every robot on the planet? Shouldn't they have realized that, if this one ship was destroyed, their entire plan would instantly fail?

Correction: Once the Federation has what they believe to be complete control of the planet, there is no need for more than one ship there to control the droids. The Federation knows that the Naboo are a peaceful people and the thought of them actually being able to blow up their control ship is absolutely preposterous to them.

Corrected entry: Rupee is the currency on Tatooine, and the currency in India.

gandolfs dad

Correction: Not true. The currency of Tatooine is "wupiupi", not "rupee"

Corrected entry: When Qui-Gon is talking with Watto about thier bet after the race (on a balcony above the track) you can see Qui-Gon move to the edge of the balcony. He stands there for a moment and then moves back in just in time to miss being spotted by one of Darth Maul's probe droids! Jedi intuition, or just good luck?

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The probe droid DID see Qui-Gon during its flyby. This is why Darth Maul gets on his hoverbike and rides off when the probe droids return to him - because he now knows where the Jedi are.

Corrected entry: If C3-PO is from Tatooine and R2-D2 was there, why in Star Wars are they completely unfamiliar with the planet? How come R2-D2 doesn't know Obi-wan and Obi-wan doesn't recognise the robot that saved his life?

Correction: In "A New Hope", Uncle Owen tells Luke to take R2-D2 to get its memory erased as if the memory erase isn't a big deal at all. Most likely, in the thirty or so years between episodes 1 and 4, an owner of the droids did exactly what Uncle Owen wanted to do. Also, Obi-Wan must have worked with hundreds of droids in his career as a Jedi - this may be disproved in the forthcoming films, but for the moment we can only assume that R2-D2 was one of many.

Corrected entry: When Senator Palpatine informs Amidala that he is a candidate for the Chairman, she asks who are the oponents. He answers: "...and Bail Antilles of Alderaan." Antilles (Wedge) was from Correlia, and Palpatine's greatest opposition was Bail Organa of Alderaan (Leia's father).

Correction: It's been explained that Antilles is a fairly common surname, and Bail is a relatively common first name, so the similarity is entirely coincidental.

Corrected entry: When Qui Gon first enters Watto's shop he is greeted by Watto in a language other than English (let's just abbreviate this language as OTE - Other Than English). Even though Qui Gon is greeted in OTE he then speaks English to Watto. This would indicate that he either understands OTE, or knows that Watto can also speak English. Watto then calls in Anakin and speaks to him in OTE. Yet he always speaks to Qui Gon in English. Even though Anakin and Watto speak both languages, they usually speak English to Qui Gon. Watto seems to speak OTE to Anakin whenever he doesn't want Qui Gon to understand him. However, in the scene where Qui Gon and Watto bet on the race there is a shot where Watto speaks to Anakin in OTE and the translation is something along the lines of "Better stop your friend's betting or I may end up owning him too." Then Anakin looks to Qui Gon and asks, "What did he mean by that?" Then Qui Gon replies, "I'll tell you later." This would indicate that Qui Gon understood what Watto had just said AND that he understands OTE.

Correction: The OTE language that Watto speaks is consistent with the Star Wars world - English being known as Basic - the common language. It can be assumed that senior jedi and businessmen know a variety of languages, OTE being something common in the Outer Rim like Huttese or whatever (if OTE were Watto's own language, and Qui-Gon were familiar, why is it he did not know Watto's resistance to the Force). So Qui-Gon would be familiar, but not proficient in such a language, while Basic would be the common language denominator.

Corrected entry: When Qui-Gon and Maul are fighting on Tatooine, Qui-Gon's lightsabre hits the handle of Maul's. This would do exactly the same as it does near the end of the movie except that this time Maul is in a position where he would have been chopped.

Correction: Qui-Gon's final swing of his green blade contacts the red blade of Maul's saber itself, several inches past the edge of Maul's saber handle. Qui-Gon never lands a blow on the handle itself.

Corrected entry: Towards the beginning of the movie when the two jedi are confronted by the three destroyers (Droidikars), they see that it's a "stand-off" and run away very quickly just barely being missed by laser blasts. As they run, go frame by frame during this section, and you'll notice that the jedi disappear for several frames although their lightsabers do not. I'm sure this a film flaw. Or do Jedi have the power to disappear at will?

Correction: They don't really disappear. They actually are using Force Speed to escape them. Just watch the shot after they run. You can see them clearly running faster than normal.

Corrected entry: At certain times in the podrace, a red light, like a laser pen, is in Anakin's eyes. This happens when the race is about to start and half way through.

Correction: It's just a reflection from the pod racer's instruments.

Corrected entry: Not really a mistake, but every time I see it I wonder why the princess and her guards just don't open fire on Darth Maul when he opens the hangar doors. There's no way he could have blocked all of the blasts and it would have taken all of 2 seconds to crispy-fry him. Instead they let the Jedi face him, resulting in Qui Gon's death.

Correction: A Jedi fully attuned to the Force is able to deflect energy bolts from multiple sources almost as an afterthought. A Sith Lord of Maul's caliber (remember, it took two Jedi Knights at the height of their powers to defeat him) armed with a double-bladed lightsaber would have little difficulty defending himself even against a dozen blaster-wielding assailants.

Corrected entry: After Darth Maul is cut into two pieces, his body splits in half as he falls. Notice how the cape on his lower half remains attached as he falls. I would think it would flap away from his lower torso if it was severed in half also.

Correction: The Cape is held around the body by the belt. Darth Maul is separated above it.

Corrected entry: If all the other Jedi in the previous movies disappear, why doesn't Qui-Gonn do so when he is killed by Darth Maul?

Correction: Multiple explanations for this. My preferred one is that he didn't accept his death (Yoda and Obi-Wan both do), and as such he doesn't disappear.

Corrected entry: After Queen Amidala and her crew enter the palace and escape through the window, because the droids don't let them pass the hall, they use ropes to climb to the upper floor. Look at the movement of the people while reaching the upper window, you can clearly see that the filmed action is shown backwards. The way everyone lifts his legs to the edge of the platform outside the window indicates that the shot was taken from actors letting themselves down from the window on ropes and reversed.

Correction: Listen to the film's commentary track from Lucas, who complains that the shot had to be done repeatedly because they could never get the winches to *pull everyone up* in unison.

Corrected entry: Why is technology so much more advanced in this film than in the others? Surely technology should progress, not regress!

Correction: It'll hopefully all be explained in the next two films - linked in to the clone wars, etc. Have patience...

Corrected entry: Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan and Jar Jar travel through the planet Naboo's core to get from the Gungan City to Theed. Two points: 1) If the planet's core isn't molten, the surface should be frozen and uninhabitable. 2) Even if it's water all the way down, the pressure would eventually reach hundreds of tons per square inch and squish our heroes like bugs.

Correction: This could just be a Gungan phrase for going throught the underwater caves.
