Was watching Ep2 and taking some screenshots when i came across a scene where Mundi is swinging a green saber, a few seconds later he has his normal blue saber in his hand again.

pretty bad screwup methinks, heres some screens.

You make it sound like it's so improbable. Because it is!:D

There is another Jedi Knight who switches lightsaber colours during the Battle of Geonosis. Luminara Unduli is seen igniting a blue lightsaber at the beginning of the arena battle, then fighting with a green, then boarding a LAAT/i with her blue blade back in action. Just think about it, though: you're a computer graphics man making AOTC. Your task is to make all the long metal poles on the screen glow either green or blue. You are bound to make one or two mistakes, and when I first saw AOTC I didn't notice any of the mistakes that I did on the fourth or fifth viewing. It doesn't spoil the film, and is forgivable.

Hell, become a Sith Lord. You only have one colour to worry about then!

Yeah i didn't notice the colour changes the first few times i watched it either. Its not that big of a deal but the rotoscoping guy SHOULD have done a better job IMO, when you are making a movie of such magnitiude theres no excuse for mistakes like that.

I say give the folks at ILM a break, i mean seriously, it's not like all they had to do in that scene was worry about lightsabers....they had to put in the blaster bolts, droids, geonosians, creatures, not to mention all the other work they ALREADY did earlier in the movie, and all they had to do after that.

Who really cares, u must be concentrating on this film a lot finding these mistakes. Wow somebody changed there lightsaber colour, WHO CARES ??? Bet ur all gonna go watch it now just to see, how sad !!! And i gotta agree with ET Warrior, give the guys at ILM a break the wrk they do is amazing, there can't get everything right all the time.

heh sorry i've always been somewhat of a perfectionist, little things like that bug me. I know its not a big deal but i want the movies to be as believable as possible and seeing something like that detracts from it a bit. I guess i should take the good with the bad, they may have messed up on the sabers but they did throw in some extra cool stuff in the background too.. like the Acklay picking up a battledroid in its mouth and flinging it across the arena. ;)

oh and call me sad if you want but i've been a starwars fan for 22 years.. so yes i am a little obsessive. :)

well spotted I say! :thumbsup:

I like knowing all the continuity errors :D You should submit your findings to TheForce.net.

Hmm never thought of doing that, whereabouts on theforce.net would i submit it?

Here is another one:
In one scene, we see Yoda standing with his front to the camera, and his shadow is on the left. We cut away, and then return to Yoda's front: the shadow is on the right (during the Jedi Training scene). Plus, on the subject of shadows, one of the Geonosian Warriors in the Droid Factory scene has no shadow, when all his other mates clearly do (when they surround Padme, look carefully).

Quite franky, I don't really care about little mistakes like that. I only notices these because I have an eye for detail, but as long as they don't accidently make Yoda blue and give Obi-Wan a red lightsaber, I'm fine. These movies are absolutely great, so who cares about little things like these?

It's still nice to know, though...
