Magic Braid 0h 12m 57s
 
 
   
 
    SCENE:   Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are telling Jar Jar about all the "terrible things" that will happen to him if he doesn't take them to the Gungan's underwater city.
 
BLOOPER:   In one of the first shots, Obi-Wan's braid is hanging behind his back, but when they cut to Jar Jar, and then back to Obi-Wan his braid is now hanging in front of his shoulder
 
   
   
 
     

 
 
   
Magic Braid II 0h 14m 44s
 
 
   
 
    SCENE:   Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon and Jar Jar have just entered the Gungan city and Captain Tarpals comes to capture Jar Jar.
 
BLOOPER:   When met by Tarpals Obi-Wan's braid and mole are on the other side of his face. The film was most likely reversed before the addition of the CGI elements. Obi-Wan is looking in one direction with the braid over the wrong ear, and then the next shot shows him looking the other way with the braid corrected.
 
   
   
 
     

 
 
   
Palace Graffiti 0h 20m 38s
 
 
   
 
    SCENE:   The Trade Federation army is approaching Naboo, and the Queen is nervously looking out the window at her people.
 
BLOOPER:   Look in the bottom right hand side of the screen, near the pillar. You will notice the letters "ILM" written in red on the walls. ILM is the abbreviated name of Industrial Light and Magic, George Lucas' company that handled all the special effects shots for the film.
 
   
   
 
     

 
 
   
Shadowless Battle Droid 0h 22m 32s
 
 
   
 
    SCENE:   The Queen and her entourage are being marched out of her palace by the battle droids.
 
BLOOPER:   Note the battle droid standing at attention on the steps towards the right of the picture. He is not casting a shadow towards the right as all the other battle droids, people, and objects in the scene are. This is most likely due to an animator forgetting to draw it in.
 
   
   
 
     

 
 
   
Backwards Padme 0h 29m 33s
 
 
   
 
    SCENE:   The Queen's handmaiden, Padme, is cleaning up R2-D2 after he saved the starship.
 
BLOOPER:   Jar Jar walks into the scene and asks Padme "Whosa are yousa?" At this point you should notice that Artoo's holoprojector on his head is in its normal position, that being on his left hand side of his main photoreceptor eye. As Jar Jar walks to the other side of Padme and Artoo, and just before the scene ends, there will be a medium close-up of Padme and Artoo. Padme is now on the other side of the little droid, and his holoprojector has flipped to the other side of his head. This is because of the film being flipped in post-production.
