Star Wars The Last Jedi Easter Eggs

12 Easter Eggs You May Have Missed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

For dedicated fans of the previous films, Star Wars: The Last Jedi's record-breaking runtime may just be a dream come true. But a long movie also means there's a lot to take in, like new characters, new locations, and a lot to miss. Given how vast the library of Star Wars media is and the universe's rich world-building, there's no question that there are at least a few Easter eggs strewn about the film. Did you catch these little details?

  • Hyperspace Tracking. The First Order gains an advantage over the Resistance by learning how to track their ship through hyperspace. This technology was first mentioned in Rogue One, when Jyn Erso discovers plans in the Galactic Empire's files.
  • The Raddus. The Resistance Star Cruiser is named after Rogue One's Admiral Raddus, who assisted the Rebel Alliance in the Battle of Scarif.
  • Luke's X-Wing. On Ahch-To, Luke Skywalker's X-Wing is visible underwater. He's repurposed one of its wings into a door to his stone hut, though Chewbacca ends up busting it open for Rey.

  • Green Milk. Part of Luke's daily island routine is obtaining green milk from a creature called a Thala-Siren. The colourful drink is similar to the infamous blue milk that's first featured in A New Hope.
  • Luke's Compass. Fans of the video game Star Wars Battlefront II might recognise a certain compass on Luke's shelf on Ahch-To. In the game, he takes it from one of Emperor Palpatine's observatories, and it possibly leads him to the remote island's Jedi Temple.
  • Leia's Message. R2-D2 boots up Princess Leia's famous holographic message from A New Hope in an effort to get Luke to help the Resistance. While not a totally hidden Easter egg, it's still a very fun and heartwarming visit back to the original trilogy.
  • The Jedi Texts Survive. Because Luke hesitates to burn down the tree containing the sacred books about the Jedi, a Force ghost Yoda does it for him, saying that Rey already possesses all of that knowledge. As it turns out, she really does — the texts, completely intact, make a brief appearance on the Millennium Falcon when she's on Crait.
  • Rebel Scum. General Hux refers to Poe Dameron as "rebel scum" after the pilot expertly pushes his buttons, and Finn uses it to refer to himself when Captain Phasma tells him he's always been scum. The phrase is first heard in Return of the Jedi, when Imperial Officer Renz uses it to insult Han Solo.

  • Gold Dice. The gold dice first seen hanging in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon in A New Hope play an emotional role in The Last Jedi. Luke takes notice of them when he sneaks onto the ship, then gives them to Leia before his epic battle with Kylo Ren.
  • Master to Student. During their final showdown on Crait, Luke says that he failed Kylo. This is similar to another case of a Jedi Master's padawan going dark; Obi-Wan Kenobi says, "I have failed you," to Anakin Skywalker when they battle on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith.
  • Binary Sunset. After using astral projection to assist in the Battle of Crait, Luke disappears as he stares off into the distance on Ahch-To. The last thing he sees is a twin sunset — a callback to the iconic A New Hope scene featuring him gazing at Tatooine's two suns setting.
  • Cameos Galore. Just like The Force Awakens before it, The Last Jedi is full of cameos, including Justin Theroux as the Master Codebreaker, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Slowen-Lo, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards as a Resistance soldier, and even Carrie Fisher's dog, Gary, as a Canto Bight alien.
