The "Floating" Interrogation Droid 0h 39m 21s
0h 39m 43s SE
    SCENE:   As Leia is about to be tortured on the Death Star.
EVENT:   In Leia's cell, you can see the crane that they used to make the interrogation droid float. This is between the droid and the right edge of the door.

The Outrider 0h 41m 18 SE
    SCENE:   Only noticeable in the Special Edition, while Luke drives his landspeeder down the main street of the Mos Eisley Spaceport.
EVENT:   We see a humanoid type droid smack down a little annoying flying robot. Luke's speeder drives behind this scene from left to right, and the camera pulls back as we follow them. From the right, and flying to the left, near the top of the screen, you can see Dash Rendar's ship, the Outrider. Dash Rendar and the Outrider figured prominently in George Lucas' 1996 multimedia experience of Shadows Of The Empire, a story taking place between Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars VI: Return Of The Jedi.


A Galaxy HOW Far Away? 0h 42m 27s
0h 43m 19s SE
    SCENE:   Luke and friends have entered the Cantina.
EVENT:   We cut to the first wide shot of the bar, which pans from left to right. In the top left of the screen, one man in a traditional looking astronaut suit walks out from the bar and into view. On the left shoulder of this man, you can see what appears to be the flag of the United States Of America.


Empty Headed Alien 0h 42m 27s
0h 43m 28s SE
    SCENE:   Luke and Ben first walk into the cantina and the camera pans across the room showing us the vast diversity of aliens in the bar.
EVENT:   As the camera cuts around the room, we see a small little "mousy" alien beg for a drink at the bar. As he turns his head look closely at his eyes, as you can see through one eye and out the other, right through his head.

Cantina Characters 0h 43m 25s
0h 44m 17s SE
    SCENE:   When Luke is sitting at the bar in the Cantina after ordering a drink.
EVENT:   He takes a glance around the Cantina. The camera then gives us shots of various aliens. After the shot that shows a big alien apparently laughing, they cut to two blue skinned aliens known as Duros engaging in a conversation. One is holding up his hands like he doesn't understand what the other one's saying. If you look at their hands, the one on the right has big, purple, very alien hands. The one on the left is wearing white gloves over human hands.

Flurry Of Action 0h 44m 20s
0h 45m 13s SE
    SCENE:   Two aliens pick on Luke and start a fight.
EVENT:   The man with the crushed in nose pulls a gun out into view and aims it at the lightsaber wielding Ben Kenobi. If you look closely, this gun has a very long sight along the top of it. Kenobi attacks, and Walrus Man's (the other alien) arm is sliced off. When we see the severed arm on the floor, it is near the gun. The gun, presumably the one that the other man had drawn, is missing the sight that was on it before. You are also able to detect this blooper, because when Walrus Man is first shown, he doesn't even have hands at all, but has hooves for hands instead, obviously different than the hand shown at the end of his severed arm.

No Co-ordination 0h 46m 36s
0h 47m 29s SE
    SCENE:   Just after Ben and Luke bargain with Solo and Chewie for transport aboard the Falcon.
EVENT:   After Han says "It looks like someone's beginning to take an interest in your handy work," the camera pans over the crowded bar to a pair of stormtroopers walking their way. If you look in the middle of the screen for the "mousy" alien with the see-through eyes, as he takes a drink of his beverage, he clearly misses his mouth and hits his chin instead.


That Wasn't Greedo, Was It? 0h 47m 58s
0h 48m 51s SE
    SCENE:   The Greedo/Han Solo "meeting" at the Cantina.
EVENT:   If you watch by freezing the frames right before Han blasts Greedo, you see the actor who plays Greedo replaced by a really bad dummy that explodes. The dummy doesn't even come close to matching the actor (much thinner, slightly taller, different jacket, and it's not even holding a gun!). In fact, even the background is totally different, as you'll notice a set of lights to the left of the screen are not there when the dummy comes on screen.

All Terrain Artoo 0h 49m 57s
0h 52m 19s SE
    SCENE:   Our heroes enter Docking Bay 94 to prepare for their voyage to Alderaan.
EVENT:   Everyone walks down a set of steps to get to the docking bay floor. Artoo however is having VERY much trouble navigating the steps, and it is quite humourous to watch. As soon as the camera is off him by panning to the right, take notice of where Artoo was. He was about halfway down the stairs. All of a sudden, Artoo appears, rolling from the left of the screen. There is no way he could have made it down the rest of the stairs that fast given the trouble he had been experiencing before.

NOTES:   This can only be seen in the widescreen editions.
