See every Easter egg and reference in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is absolutely dominating at the box office and fans are loving it. One of the things that fans usually love are Easter eggs and reference in a film. However, did JJ Abrams pack a little too many into The Force Awakens? Mr Sunday Movies attempts to answer that question with his new Easter eggs and references video for the film and there are a lot.
"All the Easter Eggs, references and cameos from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’re talking Easter Eggs and nods to the original Star Wars Trilogy, the prequel trilogy, JJ Abrams tropes and some cameos you wouldn’t believe (that you’ll probably believe).
A lot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens pulls directly from A New Hope including the Starkiller super weapon being pretty much a bigger Death Star, Jedi mind tricks and a hero stranded on a desert planet to just name a few. Then we get into how Finn’s Stormtrooper number harkens back to Princess Leia’s imprisonment, limb loss and how a stack of original Ralph McQuarrie’s concept art informed the look and design of so many elements of The Force Awakens including the new X-Wings and a whole lot of unused material.
As mentioned the prequels aren’t entirely left out with hints towards podracing, Jango and Boba Fett, Cloning an army and more. Darth Vader obviously informs a lot about Kylo Renn (he does posess his ashes and helmet after all) but he also has a lot in common with some expanded universe charaters including Jacen Solo and Ben Skywalker.
There’s so much ore though! Links to not only the expanded universe (now not canon) but the new expanded material including the origin of Po Dameron, how Han Solo lost the Falcon and Princess Leia’s flashback to Darth Maul on Naboo. Check out all that and more in the video and if you could leave anything I’ve missed in the comments that’d be super."Mr Sunday Movies isn't perfect. If you caught an Easter egg or reference in the film that is not in this video be sure to let me know. Enjoy!
