If you’re not paying attention, you will miss it. This little sound surprise can be heard in the ending credits of “The Phantom Menace.”
It’s not until the last ten seconds that a couple of breaths from Darth Vader punctuate the closing credit music, but it’s enough to send a shiver down one’s spine.
Two Easter Eggs Can Be Spotted in This Scene
During the battle of Eravana, Chewbacca’s arm is injured. Finn is milling through some stuff on the Millennium Falcon looking for supplies to treat him. At one point he digs up a familiar-looking sphere, the remote training ball used by Luke Skywalker in the original movie. He looks at it then hastily throws it aside.
Finn also ditches aside a holo-chess board that harks from that classic film as well. These Easter eggs are found in “The Force Awakens.”
Movie Poster Easter Egg
The Star Wars movie franchise is chock full of fun Easter egg surprises. It goes back a long way, way before we began calling them, “Easter eggs.” Even before the internet, there were plenty of dropped signs and references in George Lucas’ creations.
In this one, found in the first movie, we can spot a “Star Wars” movie poster inside the cockpit of Princess Leia’s ship.
How Did Homer Simpson Get a Cameo in “Attack of the Clones?”
It’s hard to say. But, in a blink-and-you-miss-it moment, Homer flashes onto the scene and just as quickly disappears. He is manning a fighter ship and spraying ammo at the enemy clones who are attacking Count Dooku.
Homer pilots a Republic ship in “Attack of the Clones” and the snippet can be seen at just about the two-hour mark, shortly after Obi-Wan enters the arena and Yoda begins to speak.
The Millennium Falcon Makes a Surprise Visit in a Prequel Movie
The ship’s cameo appears in “Revenge of the Sith.” The Millennium Falcon can be spotted docking on Coruscant early in the 2005 movie. When fans first saw it, there was speculation that the ship was a random YT cruiser.
However, George Lucas cleared it all up when he confirmed it was the Millennium Falcon lowering in for a landing at the dock.
