Disney just released those Rebels easter eggs in Rogue One, in case you missed them

The Star Wars animated series Rebels is set just a couple of years before the events of Rogue One, and director Gareth Edwards made sure to slip in a few nods for keen-eyed fans. But this should help in case you missed them on the big screen.

Disney has released some official images from Rogue One featuring the Rogue One easter eggs, including the crew’s Ghost ship and the sassy droid Chopper. The shots show the Ghost ship during the film’s climactic battle (which fans had already spotted in the trailers), and parked at the Yavin 4 base. There’s also a wider shot of Yavin 4 that shows Chopper buzzing around in the background. There were apparently more shots that featured Chopper, though the film's hefty edits left many of them on the cutting-room floor.

Along with those easter eggs, there was also a moment on Yavin 4 where "General Syndulla" is paged, which is a reference to the Rebels character Hera (who will apparently be getting a promotion in the future). These nods were great, but it’s a shame we didn’t actually get to see any of the Ghost crew on base.

Check out the images below (and above), and let us know which ones you spotted while watching Rogue One.
