Part 1 of the 2 part Star Wars Resistance season finale aired this Sunday. No Escape, Part 1 was a little light on Easter eggs and franchise references, but that is not all that surprising. The season is coming to a close, and the writers are trying to concentrate heavily on their own story. Matt is out this week, so I did a little digging and was able to find 3 references. Here we go.
Star Wars Resistance: No Escape, Part 1 Easter Eggs And References
- Neeku mentions that Kaz is having “delusions of grandeur” when he mentions his father is a New Republic senator. (Return of the Jedi reference).
- The Colossus has a hyperdrive, a common feature of many Star Wars star ships, but not platforms (General Star Wars tech reference).
- Right before General Hux’s speech, a trooper mentions that Starkiller Base is operational. (First mention of Starkiller Base in Resistance, plus we see the actual speech and destruction featured in The Force Awakens, so solid TFA reference).
