Before Star Wars: The Last Jedi was even released in theaters, director Rian Johnson tipped audiences off about an adorable Easter egg in the film: he designed an alien to look like Carrie Fisher's dog, Gary. It is a touching tribute to Fisher, who passed away in December 2016, but it is also a hint that Johnson has a sense of humor when it comes to The Last Jedi Easter eggs.
While alien-Gary is one of the cutest references in The Last Jedi, he is certainly not the only homage in the film. There are plenty of Star Wars universe Easter eggs in The Last Jedi – and a few other pop-culture phenoms get shout-outs, too.
