Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The Rise of Clovis - S6-E6

New this week Continuity mistake: While Anakin and Obi-Wan are talking about Rush Clovis, a droid head Anakin is working on disappears from a table between shots. (00:07:30)


Sphere of Influence - S3-E4

New this month Continuity mistake: When Anakin and Padmé are walking towards her ship while discussing the situation, as happens with surprising frequency, Rex, walking behind them, is missing his kama (the kilt). (00:04:35)


Sphere of Influence - S3-E4

New this month Continuity mistake: When Baron Papanoida walks into Jabba's court, his half-cape is missing. (00:10:02)


R2 Come Home - S2-E21

New this month Continuity mistake: The canopies of Anakin and Mace's starfighters appear different than they did in the previous episode, now possessing an opaque rim around the outside.


Death Trap - S2-E20

New this month Continuity mistake: When Commander Ponds orders some other clone troopers to evacuate because he's staying onboard with the Admiral, his kama (kilt-thing) is missing. (00:16:46)


Death Trap - S2-E20

New this month Continuity mistake: When the alarm goes off, Sergeant Crasher tells his cadets that there's been an explosion and that they'll show the crew how the Clone Youth Brigade does things. As he's saying this, the camera cuts from him to a closeup of Hotshot before back to Crasher, who is walking through the same group of cadets in the exact same way in both shots. (00:10:36)


Duchess of Mandalore - S2-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When Satine is falsely identified as a suspect in a shooting, she pulls her hand with her holdout pistol under her cloak, but when two police droids approach, her hand is back out again. (00:11:23)


Voyage of Temptation - S2-E13

New this month Continuity mistake: When Anakin is facing down one of the assassin droids, after it throws Redeye's body at him, he and the droid are suddenly in a different part of the cargo hold, with fewer crates around them. (00:09:04)


Dooku Captured - S1-E11

New this month Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the briefing about the visit to Florrum, Rex's kama (kilt-thing) is missing. (00:15:49)


Bombad Jedi - S1-E8

New this month Revealing mistake: When Jar Jar demands that Padmé be released while posing as a Jedi, his ears clip through the back of the hood he's wearing. (00:19:16)


Revival - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When the two factions of Hondo's pirates are fighting each other, the ones who sided with Maul and Savage are using blasters that fire red bolts, while the ones that stuck with Hondo shoot blue bolts. When Hondo persuades the traitors to work for him again and they attack the two Sith, all of the pirates' blasters are now firing blue bolts. This is Star Wars, not G.I. Joe, and weapons don't just change colour like that.

Rookies - S1-E5

Other mistake: The battle droids - including the commando droids featured here - habitually have two broad fingers and a thumb. So how can a commando droid squeeze itself completely into clone trooper armor without its broad fingers tearing open the gloves, since it can't separate its fingers?

Nightsisters - S3-E12

Deliberate mistake: At the beginning, Asajj Ventress is wearing an outfit with a long skirt. When she is rescued from her damaged starfighter by the scavengers, the skirt has vanished. This was done because the animators found the skirt too difficult to animate. This is also why she receives a brand new outfit that never had a long skirt later in the episode. (00:08:20)

The Deserter - S2-E10

Plot hole: When Lawquane spots the droids in the field, he identifies them instantly as commando droids. But as he had left the Republic Army shortly after the first battle on Geonosis (the one which started the war) and has lived as a farmer ever since, and since the commando droids are relatively new (see "Rookies"), how can he know what they are? With his lack of battlefield experience, he should simply call them battle droids.


Pursuit of Peace - S3-E11

Other mistake: During Padmé's big speech to the Senate, Duchess Satine is visible in the background watching at one point. Satine is the ruler of Mandalore, a neutral planet, not a Senator, and thus has no reason to be present at a normal session of the Galactic Senate.

Mystery of a Thousand Moons - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, the Republic troops blasted huge holes into the Separatist lab to enter it. In this episode, in which the highly contagious airborne virus is unleashed into the facility, the holes are conveniently nowhere to be seen, so it can't get loose onto Naboo.

Counter Attack - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: Besides Obi-Wan, Even Piell and Commander Cody, the exact number of people in Obi-Wan's group keeps changing.

Duel of the Droids - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After Grievous has received R3's message, he assures the dismembered R2 that he will not come to harm. We see R2's head lying on the dissection table with his electronic eye dangling from a cable. When Grievous stands up again, just before his MagnaGuards enter, R2 has his eye back in place. It's a brief shot, so you'll have to be quick to catch that glitch.

Ambush - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After the droid advance force has split up to hunt down Master Yoda, the Jedi Master and his clone escorts attack each group on their own. When Yoda ambushes his group, it has six battle droids; but he is seen finishing only four of them. The remaining two just vanish from the scene.

Rookies - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: During the end scene, when Echo and Fives are honored for their services, in the first shot, Echo's helmet is missing, despite his arm being positioned as if he's holding it. When his helmet appears, it's missing the red binocular attachment, which only appears later in the scene. (00:22:00)

Mystery of a Thousand Moons - S1-E18

Obi-Wan: Very impressive. You just destroyed seventeen defenseless battle droids without suffering a scratch.
[Another battle droid falls apart.]
Anakin: Eighteen, actually.
