#3 Luke winks at C-3PO

In episode 8, Luke winks at C-3PO when he arrives at the abandoned rebel base. A gesture of complicity which certainly means that the droid spotted that Luke was not really present. In addition, it is also a question of perpetuating the emotional bond which unites two iconic characters of the saga.

#4 Finn and Leia have the same number

Princess Leia’s inmate number and Finn’s stormtrooper number are the same. During the rescue of Princess Leia by Luke, Han, Obi-Wan and Chewbacca in episode 4, the name of his cell bears the inscription 2187.

#5 Chewbacca improvisation

In The force awakens, Han Solo drops his parka during a scene. Later, Chewbacca gives it back to him, which provokes a slight reaction of astonishment from the smuggler played by Harrison Ford.

This reaction is due to the fact that said scene is not included in the script, and was therefore improvised by Chewbacca actor Joonas Suotamo. He later confirmed this to Hollywood Reporter.

#7 Luke’s Training Drone Returns

Lightsaber training against Luke’s combat drone on Tatooine in episode 4 (1977) is a cult passage in the saga. In The force awakens, released in 2015, almost 40 years later, the small drone returns, unearthed by Finn on the Millennium Falcon. A beautiful tribute to the very first film released.

#8 Blue squadron is destroyed in RogueOne

The Death Star attack scene in A New Hope is, for the time, a real visual slap for the spectators, and a sign of technological prowess on the part of Georges Lucas and his teams. But the yellow squadronWhere gold in VO, which accompanies the red of which Luke is a part was originally supposed to be blue. For technical issues related to the display, they will eventually be replaced.

RogueOne (2016) decided to refer to it, since during the Battle of Scarif, taking place just before the events ofA New HopeIhe blue squadron is completely destroyed by the forces of the Empire, thus making a technical problem a true coherence in the Star Wars universe. And yes, we know that Rogue One is not part of the postlogy!
