Make no mistake about it – modern cinema just wouldn’t be the same without the Star Wars franchise. It has dazzled audiences for decades with its cutting-edge special effects, wowed cinema-goers with its fantastical tale of good vs. evil, and bowled fans over with its otherworldly lore – ultimately redefining what it means to be a big blockbuster movie in the process. However, with such an enduring legacy, it’s no surprise that there are tons of hidden secrets, Easter eggs and obscure plot points. Furthermore, the latest installment is no different. Entitled The Last Jedi, the film was a runaway success. But it also included one of the most ingenious and well-crafted Easter eggs to ever grace the series. And it all leads back to Rogue One.
Fans of the Star Wars franchise clambered at the end of 2017 to see the latest installment in the film series, entitled The Last Jedi. The movie – which saw the return of Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill – served as the follow-up to 2015’s The Force Awakens.
The film chronicles Rey’s battle against the nefarious Kylo Ren, as she looks to restore balance to the galaxy. With the help of Leia and the Resistance, Rey must face the First Order under the tutelage and guidance of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker – using the mysterious Force to bring them down.
