When Luke, Han, and Chewie are to be killed in the Sarlacc pit, Jabba pulls Leia toward him and her mole on her lower back is on her left side. Then when visible during the rest of the scene, it is on her right, lower back.
Opening crawl: "Luke Skywalker has returned to his home planet of Tatooine in an attempt to rescue his friend Han Solo from the clutches of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. Little does Luke know that the GALACTIC EMPIRE has secretly begun construction on a new armored space station even more powerful than the first dreaded Death Star. When completed, this ultimate weapon will spell certain doom for the small band of rebels struggling to restore freedom to the galaxy..."
In at least one earlier video release of the movie, Lando inexplicably says "now," right before saying "Come on, Han, old buddy. Don't let me down." The Special Edition restores the rest of the scene and shows that Lando says "We're sure in the middle of it now." The restored dialogue with Lando mentioned above is also present in full on the CBS/Fox 1990 U.S Widescreen Laserdisc, which is a re-issue of the 1986 Japanese Widescreen Laserdisc.
