But there are a few STAR WARS aficionados (like me) who study every detail no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. For example: it doesn’t take six light years to go from Endor to Bespin. It takes thirty light months. Stuff like that takes me right out of the picture.
And that’s just for starters. Here now are some of the continuity errors I’ve discovered. A few are glaring. I’m sure there are others. You’re welcome to add them.
Much is made about the “Dark Side,” but in truth you can still make out shapes.
In STAR WARS Episode II we learn Geonosis is where battle droids are manufactured. But if you look closely, on each one it says: “Made in Korea.”
Admiral Gial Akbar was a Navy Admiral so his commanding a rebel fleet against the Death Star was impossible since there are no oceans in outer space. They’re going to drop the anchor to where?
Darth Vader? Darth Andeddu? Darth Sidious? Darth Bane? Darth Caedus? Darth Cognus? Just pick one and stay with it.
The only difference between the Old Republic and the New Republic was that the New Republic had Trader Joes.
When Nom Anor enters a bar, do the patrons yell “Nom!” or “Anor!?” Again, pick one.
Senator Bana Breemu, representative of the Humbarine sector in the Galactic Senate – votes yes for farm subsidies in STAR WARS IV and no in STAR WARS VII.
Tatiana Maslany was not involved in a single Clone War.
Mustafar is a volcano planet yet there is still housing. Good luck getting insurance.
If you have a fast pass for STAR TOURS you still have to wait five minutes.
Donatas Motiejunas, is not the commander of the Death Star. He’s a forward for the Houston Rockets. Meanwhile, D’Qar received a ten-day contract from the Sacramento Kings.
And finally, with names like Triclops and Lumpawarrump, there’s a character named Ken?
Hopefully, the filmmakers will take a little more care next time. Although I hear the next chapter begins immediately after this last one and the first scene takes place at Ryan O’Neal’s Malibu beach house.
