"Star Wars" Movie Mistakes You Never Caught

When it was released in 1977, "Star Wars" took the world by storm. Who could've dreamed it'd be the franchise it is today? We're certain you've seen this film a handful of times, but did you catch these filming mistakes?

"Look out for that door..."

Easily one of the most popular and notorious filming mistakes in film history has to be when a Stormtrooper accidentally bumps his head on the door as the troops make their way into a room. On the DVD release they've even added a thump noise when he hits the wall.

Goofy Greedo

Many people were outraged at how the remastered versions of Star Wars have Greedo shooting first as opposed to the original film which showcases Han Solo shooting Greedo in the Catina.

In the original film, right before Greedo is shot you can see the film makers replaced him with a dummy set to blow up that looks like a cheap version of the original costume.
