The 20 Coolest ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Easter Eggs
This post contains SPOILERS for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, specifically about the Easter eggs in the movie. Like, it basically spoils all of them. Sorry about that.
You had to know that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was going to have a ton of Easter eggs. From the moment the film was officially announced, it’s been described as the final film in the original “Skywalker Saga” that began with the original Star Wars from 1977. As the conclusion of a massive nine-part franchise — and as the conclusion of the smaller sequel trilogy that started with 2015’s The Force Awakens — it has a lot of Star Wars material to reference and honor. This is Lucasfilm’s last chance to sneak it all in one last time.
Below, you’ll find our 20 favorite Easter eggs in The Rise of Skywalker, including surprise cameos and interesting echoes of past movies (particularly Return of the Jedi, the finale of its own Star Wars trilogy). There are many more references in the film, particularly if you’re a fan of the Expanded Universe. (We generally restricted ourselves to callbacks to the films themselves.) If you saw something you think everyone else missed, feel free to let us know on social media. And until we have a new Star Wars movie to write about, may the Force be... uh... line?
