Most Star Wars references in other movies and TV shows are pretty obvious and therefore pretty boring. The staff here at ScreenCrush prefer the ones that fall under the umbrella of Easter eggs; hidden, subliminal, or extremely subtle hat-tips to the franchise, often as background gags or co-opted lines of dialogue. As we gear up for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (now less than three months away!), it seemed like the perfect time to collect 25 of the most clever Star Wars Easter eggs from other movies (and TV shows!) and put them together into one gallery, which you’ll find above.

For several years now, Steven Spielberg’s production company DreamWorks has partnered with Disney to distribute their films, while Spielberg has been free to produce and direct films with and for other studios.

This seems like a basic corporate maneuver, but with that change could come something that either excites or terrifies you: reboots of properties like Jaws and Back to the Future.

Universal Pictures is having a record-setting year without a single superhero movie on their roster. It’s true that superhero movies have been incredibly successful, but is that sustainable? Steven Spielberg doesn’t think so.

Amid the reign of selective sequels in recent years, few could have expected Jurassic World to revitalize interest in the Jurassic Park franchise so heartily. Certainly, the original incarnation permeated its share of culture with endless merchandising tie-in, but did you know we almost got a “mature” Jurassic Park animated series, before Spielberg permanently caged the project? We even have the concept art to prove it.
