So for those of you out there who like to keep your eyes peeled for surprises lurking in the backgrounds of your favorite blockbusters, it sounds like Saw Gerrera’s cave may have more than a few in store. Whether they’re just references to Edwards’ past films or not will have to wait to be seen, of course, but with iconic characters like Darth Vader, Mon Mothma, and possibly, Grand Moff Tarkin, appearing in the film, it’s likely Gerrera’s cave won’t be the only place in Rogue One containing references to other films.
Previous rumors and reports have indicated that Rogue One may end immediately before the events of A New Hope. If so, then that should provide the film with an ample amount of opportunities for references and name drops along the way, though that’s somewhat already expected considering how closely linked Rogue One‘s story is with the rest of the Original Trilogy. Nonetheless, the confirmation of not only Easter eggs being in the film, but also where some are and what they are should come as exciting news for fans anxiously counting down the days until Rogue One‘s release in a few weeks. They may not be just Star Wars Easter eggs either, it turns out.
