Suggested correction: It's pretty obvious that this was done on purpose for comedic effect (growing noses are usually an homage to "Pinocchio"), and thus is not really a mistake. Remember, this is a hand-drawn show, so it's not like the animators would simply overlook a very noticeable detail like this.

Sands of Jakku - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Rey grabs BB-8 and her staff, and then jumps up onto a fallen AT-AT Walker.

It cuts to a shot of the Nightwatcher from over Rey's shoulder and then back to a frontal view of her again from a higher angle. Rey didn't move once during those shots. But now she's suddenly standing further away from BB-8 to show the junk part between them, BB-8 now has much less slime on him, and the groove in the metal of the walker going down vertically behind BB-8 has vanished.
