With The Force Awakens already the biggest-earning movie in North America, it’s worth noting how humble Star Wars’ roots were. Take these 20 mistakes from 1977’s A New Hope, for example, which prove that the first instalment isn’t as perfect as you remember.
10. Chewie’s wardrobe malfunction
Despite wearing few items of clothing, Chewbacca still experiences a wardrobe malfunction when the Millennium Falcon makes the jump to hyperspace. In the first shot, the Wookie is seen without his trademark sash; moments later it reappears around him.
7. Colliding lightsabers
Speaking of lightsabers, the filmmakers asked Guinness and David Prowse, who played Vader, not to hit their weapons too hard for fear of breaking them. They evidently ignored the request, if the dust particles that can be seen flying off them are anything to go by.
5. The dead pain-fearing rebel
