Lucasfilm Story Group Goes In-Depth on Rogue One Easter Eggs, Leia, and Rebels Connections


As a prequel taking place just before A New Hope and shortly after the time of the ongoing Star Wars RebelsRogue One was particularly littered with small details and connections to other parts of the Star Wars universe. In this special segment from The Star Wars Show, three members of Lucasfilm’s story group talk about some of those connections, how they came together in the real world, and their significance in the story.

It’s all interesting detail for fans, but if you’re here for the Leia talk, that starts at about the 19-minute mark.
