List Rules
Vote up the Easter eggs you didn't catch in 'Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker.'

After nine movies and 42 years, the Skywalker saga officially concluded with the sprawling Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Given that the film intended to both wrap up a nine-episode epic and pay homage to its own mythology, it makes sense that Easter eggs in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker abound. For those able to avoid distraction from the nonstop explosions and bouts of Force lighting, it almost feels as though there are hidden things in The Rise of Skywalker at every turn.

In some sense, Star Wars has always been about poetic repetition and, ultimately, restoring balance and equilibrium. Director J.J. Abrams reinforces those themes with references big and small. Star Wars: Episode IX Easter eggs include everything from Chewie finally receiving a medal to the more obvious - but still exciting - return of major characters and locations from previous films. So let's strap in and look at some of the better Easter eggs you probably didn't notice on your first go-around.

Be warned: Spoilers lie ahead.
