All the call backs found in The Rise of Skywalker (and a few Easter eggs)

The Rise of Skywalker call backs and Easter Eggs 

The new Star Wars films have done a fine effort in making callbacks to the films that came before. By going back and forth the films become a more comprehensive story where their elements and themes entwine, offering a really sustaining viewing experience.

Or perhaps callbacks are just fun fan service...

Either way, just like The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi did some pretty awesome shout outs to the past films, The Rise of Skywalker has done some amazing riffs and rhymes on what has come before.

It does a fine job of rounding out the sequel trilogy and ending the saga.

JJ Abrams and fellow scriptwriter Chris Terrio (Batman v Superman, Justice League) have slipped in a few Easter eggs as well...
  • When Rey trains in the forest, she uses a training orb, the same as Luke did in ANH. The same one was found again by Finn during the Force Awakens when he was looking for first aid items for Chewbacca. 
  • B-Wing space fighters are seen for the first time since the Return of the Jedi.
  • The Emperor's 'spider' throne was inspired by a design that concept artist Ralph McQuarrie made for the Return of the Jedi. 
  • In the scene were C3PO has his circuits rewired by Babu Frick, look in the background - you'll see a retired Battle Droid which was first featured in The Phantom Menace. Roger Roger!
  • Lando Calrissian's return marks a gap of 36 years since he was last seen in Return of the Jedi. 

Check out Rise of Skywalker quotes and what Kylo Ren said. There's a star destroyer load of TROS trivia as well.
