'Star Wars' Easter Eggs You Can Spot On Disney+
Even without digging any deeper, the Star Wars films are honestly pretty epic. Back in the '70s when Star Wars was first released, the technology was completely revolutionary for that decade. George Lucas managed to intrigue moviegoers with special effects, while telling a unique, universal story that has truly withstood the test of time.
However, upon further inspection, it seems that the folk behind the scenes of Star Wars had a little bit more fun than the casual viewer would even realize. Leaving clues and small symbols known as "Easter eggs" for the audience to find, the staff behind Star Wars has fueled the Internet into a frenzy over various interpretations of these clever hidden messages and fun cameos.
Thank goodness for the pause and rewind function! With every major movie and series now available to stream anytime on Disney+, you can spot all those fleeting blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments. Here are the best Easter eggs of the Star Wars franchise. Vote for your favorite hidden Star Wars secret below!

R2-D2 and C-3PO Show Up in Raiders of the Lost ArkDuring the scene where Indy and Sallah lift a heavy stone slab to get to the Ark of the Covenant, you can clearly see C-3PO and R2-D2 drawn in hieroglyphics on the pillar to Indy's right (the viewer's left). Also, it's a little harder to spot, but when Indy and Sallah lift the Ark, you can faintly make out what looks like Princess Leia uploading the Death Star's plans - and her holographic message to Obi-Wan - into R2-D2 in more hieroglyphics on the wall behind them.
- The Falcon has a storied history, dating back to before the Galactic Empire. Naturally, it makes a cameo in Revenge to solidify that history.

At Spielberg's suggestion, Lucas included a new species called Asogians that definitely look like relatives of everyone's favorite extraterrestrial.
