- In the prologue, Mace Windu, Anakin and Obi-Wan play with Jango Fett's head before Boba Fett gets it.
- In the prologue, Boba Fett has brown hair and white shirt with red sleeves. In the movie, Boba Fett has black hair and blue shirt with violet sleeves.
- In the prologue, Mace Windu is eating an ice cream and beats off energetic shells with a lightsaber; then Jango Fett switches on his flamethrower, so the ice cream melts. That scene wasn't actually in the movie.
