11 Glaring Plot Holes in Star Wars

In honor of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we are going to remind you of 11 glaring plot holes in Star Wars to curb the manufactured hype.

Now don’t get me wrong: I love Star Wars.  The Original Trilogy (A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi) did some really masterful storytelling, even if some of the writing and acting was a little stilted.  The story of Luke’s journey to become a jedi and save the galaxy is absorbing, and most of these plot holes aren’t all that obvious while you’re watching the film.

11 Glaring Plot Holes in Star Wars

The same cannot be said about the Prequel Trilogy (Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith).  The Prequel created more noticeable errors by forging extraneous ties to the Original Trilogy, like the decision to include C-3PO and R2D2. As a result of the Prequel Trilogy, the statements and actions of the earlier movies become contradictory or silly.  Not even Star Wars is perfect, and this list will show some of the questionable writing choices.

For the purposes of this list, we are going to be looking exclusively at the 6 live-action Star Wars movies.  While the animated TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Rebels and the now non-canon material that makes up the Expanded Universe have addressed some plot choices, a moviegoer shouldn’t have to spend additional time looking up answers to obvious issues in the movie.
