Luke on Falcon for the first time in decades

In one of the most touching scenes in The Last Jedi, Luke Skywalker climbs aboard the Millennium Falcon for the first time in decades. While holding Han’s lucky dice, he reminisces about time’s past. His old friend R2-D2 makes his presence known, dropping a few f-bombs in the process.

After Luke tells R2 that he’s not coming back, the droid pulls a “cheap move” playing a recording that begun Luke’s hero journey in A New Hope. 

"Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope."

Not only this recording of Leia reminds of the past, but by also on the here and now. Luke now is capable of fulfilling the Obi-Wan Kenobi role, but refuses. He is indeed the only hope for the Resistance like Ben Kenobi was the Rebel Alliance.

Vice Admiral Holdo.

Our first Star Wars encounter with Holdo is well before the events of The Last Jedi. In the Leia: Princess of Alderaan novel both Holdo and Leia served together as Apprentice Legislature in their teens. During the Galactic Civil War, Holdo served Leia in the Rebel Alliance, where the two developed a rich friendship in the process.

Holdo’s purple hair represents her rebellious nature, which is revealed when she tells Leia that she indeed likes Poe’s same mentality.  She also wears bracelets designed with constellations from her home world Gatalenta — which is a place known for poetry, tranquility, and compassion.

When Poe, Finn, and Rose are seeking assistance in breaking onto Snoke’s Supremacy ship, they contact Maz Kanata. Not much of an Easter egg here, but more of a question. Why is Maz playing  Call of Duty during their “Skype” conversation? Anyways, she sends Finn and Rose to the casino Canto Bight on the planet Cantonica in search of the master codebreaker.
