Each Star Wars film feels like a culmination of all the ones before it, and The Last Jedi is no exception. So it makes sense that the film would be chockablock with Easter eggs to other Star Wars stories.
We definitely knew about some of them, but Lucasfilm Story Group's Leland Chee, Pablo Hidalgo, Matt Martin, and Rayne Roberts knew... well, as much as you’d expect the Star Wars folks to know about a Star Wars movie.
These fine folks do a half-hour deep dive into all the minutiae of the latest in the Skywalker saga, highlighting details like Poe Dameron’s uncanny knowledge of the First Order’s Dreadnought, the hyperspace tracking system, and Han Solo’s dice.
Take a look:
DJ’s naming origins, the Porgs, and the ironing gag that helped lighten one of the film’s most intense sequences — all these and many, many more are addressed by the team of experts, along with hi-def footage of a film whose clips have mostly remained secret, aside from those in the trailer.
So if you want relive some spectacular renditions of the film’s best shots, this video has something for you, too.
