Here’s all the Star Wars Rebels Easter Eggs in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story


Now that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has made its theatrical debut, the speculation on what Easter Eggs and connections to other Star Wars films and properties were in the movie….

Thanks to some help from the awesome folks at Nerdist, we now have a complete list of the Star Wars Rebels Easter Eggs in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and there are more than you may have originally thought. Weeks before the film premiered, a trailer showed the Ghost — the ship in which our favorite band of Rebels use to fly missions across the galaxy — and that set the internet afire.

And that’s where we’ll start our Easter Egg hunt, with the Ghost:

  • The Ghost is also on Yavin 4, at the great temple, and can be seen when Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor take off for Jedha. Nerdist notes to look to the top left of the ship platform outside the base on Yavin 4, and that’s where you’ll find the Ghost, there in the corner.
  • The Ghost is also seen from the bridge of Admiral Raddus’s ship, during a battle.
  • The Ghost can be seen several times during the battle of Scarif.

Next, we look for Chopper:

  • Chopper shows up in the scene where Mon Monthma is learning about the Scarif attack. As you can see in the photo above, Chop is on the bottom left, while Mon Mothma is in the bottom middle.

Hera gets a promotion:

  • According to Nerdist, after Jyn Erso delivers the news about her father’s true allegiance to the Rebel Alliance council, if you listen carefully, you will be able to hear “General Syndulla” being summoned to report in the background, over a loudspeaker.

Commander Sato’s ship is in Rogue One:

  • Sato’s ship, the Liberator,  can be seen in two space battles. The best and clearest shot of the Liberator is the one where TIE Fighters are attacking Admiral Raddus’ command ship.

The Hammerheads attack:

  • Of course, Admiral Raddus commands the Hammerheads in a brilliant tactical move, which is something we’ve never seen in a Star Wars film before. But these beauties were obtained on Star Wars Rebels.

According to Nerdist, Zeb’s favorite swear word, “Karabast!” can be heard from the big-mouthed alien, Pao, during a battle scene. The scene is on Scarif as the AT-ACTs are approaching.
