We all love Star Wars for its massive budgets and incredible special effects, but part of what makes it such a charming franchise is that it's not perfect. Really, it's not even close. In the original trilogy alone, there are countless mistakes that would make it into the final cut, mistakes that we can all look at now and laugh. Whether these mistakes are from bad editing, continuity mistakes or botched special effects, they make Star Wars more special; they give it a little character. It's the little trivial things like these that have become embedded in the Star Wars mythos and made the entire thing so much more fun on multiple viewings.
At this point in the game, we're allowed to make fun of Star Wars. We can laugh at the silliness because the franchise is so beloved and so brilliant. No one's feelings are going to be hurt because of this. Even if they are hurt, that's ok because, when you're as rich as the people are who were involved with Star Wars, money can buy happiness, or something like that. With this list, we're giving you another reason to go back and watch the original trilogy, assuming you needed another reason. You can tell your partner or friend or family, it's a project. It's for science. Go through and spot these mistakes, laugh at them and be merry. You're going to look like the brightest person in the room and the hugest nerd all at once, for science. Be bold. Here are 15 mistakes from the original Star Wars Trilogy.
15 Stormtrooper Head Bump
14 Visible Power Cord
13 Lando's Disappearing Gloves
12 What Color Is This Jacket?
11 Dusty Lightsabers Or Special Effects?
10 The Mysterious Changing Holster
9 AT-AT Leg Pole
8 Black R2D2
7 Missing Restraints
6 The Unspoken Words
5 Darth Walking Through The Ship
4 Chewbacca's Shoe
3 Unknown Passenger
2 Han Won't Give Anyone A Solo
1 Ghostly Luke
In A New Hope, R2D2 goes off and Luke follows after to find him. Back at his home, Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen find out that Luke is gone, but maybe he was there the whole time, in spirit. Or maybe George Lucas just mucked up a shot because in one of the scenes at Luke's homestead, we're made to believe that we're seeing a rolling video of the property, but really it's a still photo. How do we know this? Well, there's a faint image of Luke in the upper right doorway, like a ghost haunting his family. This little screw up might actually be a blessing later on for the newer Star Wars films to use. Maybe Luke dies in one of the subsequent films and comes back as a force ghost, visiting his family's home while they're out. Called it first.
