A mistake was just discovered in The Empire Strikes Back — here are other notable goofs and errors from the original Star Wars movies

Mouthing/not mouthing words

Star Wars stars have occasionally had trouble with their words.

In The Empire Strikes Back, Han (Harrison Ford) can be seen mouthing Leia’s line during the Millennium Falcon’s journey into the space slug: “Captain, being held by you is quite enough to get me excited.”

It’s unclear how many takes they had undergone for the scene — or if Ford was merely trying to help his co-star Carrie Fisher. But that take was kept in the movie.

The opposite problem occurred for Luke in the Dagobah scene. After Luke and R2-D2 crash-land, Luke sets up a makeshift camp and plugs something into his droid colleague.

“Now, all I gotta do is find this Yoda — if he even exists,” Luke says. But his mouth doesn’t move during the second half of the sentence.

Maybe it was Luke’s inner monologue? He was merely thinking it?

No, it was an error … but it doesn’t take away from what occurs moments later, when Yoda appears.

“I feel like … we’re being watched,” Luke says, pointing his gun at the strange figure lurking nearby.
“Away put your weapon, I mean you no harm,” Yoda tells him. “I am wondering: why are you here?”

“I’m looking for someone.”

“Looking? Found someone, you have, I would say. Hmmm?”
