Next time, before watching the movie to freshen up your Star Wars trivia skills, check out this list of cool hidden stuff and Easter Eggs and try to spot them in the film.
Han's Dashboard Dice
These are a big deal in both the original and the latest trilogies. Though no character even mentions them, you can clearly see them above the crew heads in Episode IV. And they make a new appearance in the Last Jedi.
A clumsy Stormtrooper
This one has been noticed by many fans. But if you haven't ever paid attention to Stormtrooper enough to spot a really clumsy one who hits his head on a Death Star when pursuing the heroes, you've missed one of the most hilarious accidents in the movies. This small mishap just makes them so relatable.
Lucas' debut reference
This is a small easter egg that only the fans of George Lucas would understand. In the first Star Wars movie, he added a little reference to his debut movie THX 1138 in the "Chewie prisoner scene," where Luke mentions cell block 1138. After that, you can find this number reference several times throughout the franchise. Can you spot them all?? Share your results in the comment section!
The technical challenges of creating an elaborate futuristic setting in the 70s and 80s resulted in many intelligent decisions. ANd many of them are simply hilarious. Next time you watch The Empire Strikes Back, pay close attention to the asteroids flying by. Can you guess what props were used for them? They are genuinely edible! For joke's sake, the team used potatoes to imitate the asteroids. And guess what...they really look like a rock on screen.
I believe you are ready for this Star Wars test with all these small hidden details in mind.
