Watch: All the Easter Eggs and Spoilers You May Have Missed in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer
< >
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been unusually good about keeping the plot details to a minimum, but that doesn't mean they can't drop a few Easter Eggs for hardcore fans. This in-depth breakdown from Mr. Sunday Movies takes a look at all of the Easter eggs, references, and potential spoilers that you may have missed in the latest Force Awakens trailer:

Possible spoilers ahead!

Starkiller Base

We got a good look at the new Starkiller base in the new poster, and saw that it looks very much like a variation on the Death Star. We see it obliterate a snow planet, and it seems that the weapon is built into an actual planet itself. There also seems to be a huge climactic attack on the base, possibly towards the third act, which would echo the first and third film of the series. 

Kylo Ren

Mr. Sunday Movies thinks Kylo Ren is "almost certainly part of the Skywalker lineage," as he wants to "finish what [Vader] started." (He also gets a good, old-fashioned Hayden Christiansen potshot in when he says that Vader started life as "the galaxy's biggest crybaby.") Do we agree with this? There have been many rumors that Finn and/or Rey are part of the Skywalker family, and if they all were, that might be a little much. I guess we'll see, but regardless, Ren will probably commit a lot of murder, considering how many dead bodies surround him in the trailer.

Han Solo

Han is seen hugging Leia in a moment that looks like it takes place right before a battle, which may support some of those rumors that Harrison Ford will finally get his wish and he will meet his maker by the end of the movie. 

Aerial attack

There seems to be an aerial attack that takes place in Skellig, Ireland, which we know is a shooting location for Star Wars Episode VIII, but we don't know what it's called in the movie yet. 

Boba Fett!

There's a Mandalorian symbol on one of the flags in the Skellig location, which is reminiscent of Boba Fett. Could he be coming back??

Poe Dameron

Poe is being tortured by Kylo Ren in the trailer, but isn't seen much after that. Mr. Sunday Movies speculates that he will be captured early on, as the marks on his face from Ren's torture may have been visible in the Comic Con footage. 


Although we know that Finn is a Stormtrooper, he is briefly seen at the Resistance base. He says in the trailer that he was "born to do one thing," which likely means the First Order. He flees from the First Order and is hit with a missile, possibly after rescuing Poe Dameron, as he's seen carrying his jacket. Mr. Sunday Movies interprets the buddy-buddy moment between Finn and Poe as "Is that my jacket?"


Rey is seen crying over what looks like a dead body. Some say it may be Chewbacca, as we can see some tufts of hair, but the body is wearing a jacket, so it's likely not Chewbacca. It could be Han Solo, if those casting rumors for Star Wars VIII were fabricated. But it could also be Poe Dameron, as the jacket is a similar color to the one that Oscar Isaac is wearing in behind-the-scenes footage.
