Star Wars: The Force Awakens mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Poe and Finn steal the TIE/SF, both of Finn's torso harness straps have thin pieces of ridged plastic attached to them - nothing else, but when Finn wakes up on Jakku those pieces attached to the straps are entirely different. (00:20:45 - 00:24:00)

Continuity mistake: While Finn, Rey, and BB-8 are hiding in the maintenance bay to unfix the poisonous gas, when Finn lifts the floor's slotted deck plate and pokes his head out there are specific grooves at the edge on top of the plate, but no grooves underneath at the edge. The problem occurs when Chewie lifts the deck plate, and those grooves should be on the side facing him (the top side), but instead they're facing out. Then when Han tells Finn "that thing" can understand him, the grooves are gone - the top side of the deck plate is properly facing out. (00:40:05)

Continuity mistake: When Finn asks Rey if she can unfix the poisonous gas they rush to get the air masks, and as Finn climbs down to the maintenance bay below deck we see the floor behind Rey when she starts to kneel to help BB-8. Then after the closeup of Rey helping BB-8, in the next shot as Finn takes BB-8 from Rey we see the corner of the floor's deck plate that has suddenly appeared behind Rey, which she reaches for in the following shot to cover the maintenance bay.

Star Wars (1977)

Star Wars mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After the Stormtrooper tells Darth Vader the Death Star plans are not in the main computer, when Vader lifts the Rebel off his feet by his throat as the Rebel tells him they intercepted no transmissions, take note of the leg plates on the Stormtrooper to Vader's right. In the wideshot, the Stormtrooper's left leg armor does not have the knee protector plate (it looks as if it's at his right knee because the extra switched them), but in the next closeup the knee plate appears at his left knee, as it should be. (00:05:40)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The perspective of this comment is incorrect. The trooper behind the boots of the lifted character is the one pointed out in the first image. You can't see his knees.

The correction is simply wrong. This is quite clear when watching the scene. The Stormtrooper who as is stated in the correction, "behind the boots of the lifted character" is only blocked in the provided screenshot, and we do actually see his legs in the shot. He is standing in the doorway (to the left) with a dark hall behind him, and the other Stormtrooper with the problem leg plates is standing beside the tall console (torpedo shaped) near the doorway to the right. When the Rebel tells Vader, "We intercepted no transmissions," we see both Stormtroopers and their legs, then in the next shot as the Rebel continues, "This is a consular ship," we see the legs of both Stormtroopers, and the one on the right has the continuity issue with the leg plates.

Continuity mistake: After Kylo Ren uses the Force to lift Rey and slam her into a tree Finn kneels beside her. When Ren calls Finn a traitor, Finn turns to his right and starts to stand up, but in the next shot Finn has stood up by turning to his left. (01:51:40)

Continuity mistake: After Rey scrubs the salvaged parts clean, when it cuts to Rey standing in front of Unkar Plutt her shoulders are quite a bit taller than the shelf in the wideshot, but in the closeup the shelf is at Rey's chin level. (00:13:15)

Continuity mistake: After Rey touches Luke's lightsaber she begins to have the vision, and when she falls to the floor the blaster is missing from the back of her belt, but after she "sees" Luke and R2 and then stands up the blaster is back again, tucked into her belt. (Even though Rey's having her vision of things all around her, she herself is not a vision).

Continuity mistake: While Rey's fixing the motivator, when Finn asks her if she wants to go back to Jakku because of family or a cute boyfriend, Finn's kneeling on his hands and knees, but in the next shot he's not, just as Rey tells him it's none of his business. (00:39:00)

Continuity mistake: When Rey reaches the top of the ridge and shouts at Teedo, we see there are no footprints in the sand between her and Teedo, so when Rey rushes to BB-8 her lone set of footprints are the only ones behind her in the sand. When Rey walks away from BB-8 telling him "No," there are many more footprints in the sand between her and the droid, even though there should only be the two sets of Rey's footprints - from both coming and going. (00:15:10 - 00:16:05)

Continuity mistake: When Rey unloads the net filled with parts at Niima Outpost, as she picks up her staff to her right we see the black bag hanging on the side of the speeder (note the bag's straps are now much shorter than when she drove off on the speeder), but in the next shot as she continues to pick up her staff, which is now to her left, the black bag is suddenly gone from the speeder (when Rey pulls the net it looks as if the black bag is lying in the net with the parts, though she didn't put it in there), and the net is entirely unattached as well.

Continuity mistake: When Snoke orders, "If what you say about this girl is true, bring her to me," Kylo Ren is wearing his hooded cape. It cuts to Rey restrained in the holding cell, and when it cuts back to Kylo Ren rushing to the holding cell to get Rey and bring her to Snoke his cape is gone. After Rey uses the Force to trick the guard, it cuts back to Kylo Ren arriving at the cell and he's once again wearing his hooded cape. (01:30:40 - 01:31:20)

Continuity mistake: When Rey wakes up restrained as Kylo Ren's "guest" at Starkiller Base, Kylo Ren's mask has distinctive surface markings and a hole, but when he removes his mask and sets it down in the closeup it's a flipped shot - the marks and hole have switched sides. (01:25:50 - 01:26:25)

Continuity mistake: After the spy, Bazine, communicates that she's found the droid at Maz Kanata's, in the following side closeup of Kylo Ren we have a good view of the distinctive surface dents/hole on the side of his mask (his left side) and this is a flipped shot, then in the front closeup of Ren those dents/hole are now on the opposite side of his mask with different marks the other side.
