the war of stars Franchise is loved by fans around the world. The movies that started the release of the 1977 classic Star Wars: A New Hope, have inspired and delighted generations of viewers – and to this day the films are considered classics of the modern age. Still, there are plenty of plot holes in the universe, and serious continuity issues have been pointed out by many fans over the years. One of the most obvious mistakes is the scene in Return of the Jedi where Princess Leia tells Luke that she has certain memories of her mother, although it is later revealed that Padmé Amidala, Leia and Luke’s mother, actually died in childbirth.

During a memorable scene in Return of the Jedi, Luke and Leia have their first conversation after realizing they are brother and sister. After Luke tells Leia that he has no memory of his mother and remarks, “I never knew her,” Leia shares that she has some memories of her mother, but only pictures and “feelings,” and tells Luke, that she “died when I was very young.” In particular, she tells Luke that she remembers her mother being beautiful and sad.

According to a video on MrsMojo’s YouTube channel, this scene would open up a major plot hole in the universe decades later Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith was published. This film, a prequel to Return of the Jedi, revealing that Padmé Amidala, Leia and Luke’s mother, had died in childbirth and didn’t get a chance to name her children until she died. Therefore, there’s no way Leia can have complete memories or memories of her time with Padmé.

For years, fans viewed this striking difference as a continuity error. However, there is a simpler explanation that might explain why Leia has some clear memories of her mother. It’s possible that Leia is stretching the truth to maintain her belief that she spent some time with her birth mother and therefore lied to both Luke and herself. Eventually, Leia was adopted and raised by Bail and Breha Organa and raised in a privileged life from birth – but she was always aware that she was adopted.

Live About also notes that Leia’s strong Force sensitivity could have filled in some of the missing blanks in her memory and that she may have had Force visions that revealed images of Padmé Amidala to her.

There are several fairly significant plot holes throughout war of stars movies. At Obi-Wan Kenobi, known as “Old Ben” Kenobi in A new hope, R2-D2 and C-3PO in the film, he seems to have no recollection of the two droids, although he worked closely with them some twenty years ago. According to Esquire, the prequel films also prove that it takes years of training before anyone can become a Jedi Knight — while at it Reich strikes backLuke seems to achieve this after just a few days of training with Yoda.

Despite these glaring plot holes, many fans don’t seem to mind the continuity concerns, choosing to accept them as lapses in the larger story or finding ways to make them make sense.
