    Maybe just a bit smaller but those in Rebels are pretty similar to ESB-droid http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Viper_probe_droid . Those in TCW were smaller model- also seen in ROTS actually- looking for Kenobi on Utapau. Models may be bit different though.

    For me knowing that there's TWO Northern Irish actors in Rogue One was very nice.

    True our Liam was also in TPM, but he's sort of exceptional!

    I am certain it was an intentional reference. Or at least I chose to think of it as one.

    That hammerhead scene was amazing! I guess we can thank Phenix squadron for saving the name on that one.

    When that elderly, bald Imperial officer talked to Tarkin I was immediately thinking "Wow, it looks like him and he finally got a line of dialogue".

    And the cast credits confirmed it, Imperial officer Romodi from the Death Star conference in ANH.

    Porkins would have been fun to include as part of Red Team. But I REALLY would have like to catch a glimpse or hear some quick dialogue from BIGGS!!!

    They had other mustached pilots, and after seeing Red and Gold leader (my favorite cameos; I clapped when I saw them) I thought to myself, "Biggs is next!"

    Soooooo....I COULD be wrong, I'll definitely have to watch it again, but:

    When they are walking on Jeddah, and they run into all the species doing different stuff, (right after the Dr. E and Ponda scene), it looks like Maz Kanata is sitting at the table playing some game with two other aliens. Again, I could be totally wrong, but it caught my eye; both times they flashed to them at the table.

    Caveat: Doesn't Jeddah get leveled? So how could she be in TFA? ....and for that matter, Dr. E and Ponda in ANH? hmmmm....

    Next time you go to see the movie, look for this little spinning holographic dancer. I'm pretty sure I saw it.

    (Edit go to 7:47 in the Holiday special, for some reason I can't get it to start there, don't put yourself through the other parts unless you're really bored LOL)

    Yes this was clever. Like Wulff Yularen in TCW it is nice to see that more and more people seen in movies are identified and receive some sort of bigger role.


    Hmm i'm not sure- only watched Holiday Special once in my life. At least there was holographic twi'lek dancer there in Saw's hideout.

    I think Porkins was seen briefly climbing in his X-wing before the battle.

    OMG, YES ! I noticed that as well. It was IMPOSSIBLE to not remember the Holiday Special.

    It could well be an homage that I missed (cause...holiday special), but the holographic dancer was a Twi'lek woman. I just took it as a trapping of the seedy bar type vibe they were going for.

    Maybe some ROTJ with the Twi'lek and a little of Holiday special with the device it was played on.

    If you are like me- ie, British- there are quite a few recognisable British actors.
    -The Rebel at the start who is killed is Daniel Mays and he appeared in an episode of Dr Who. Apparently the guy is called Tivik.
    [IMG][IMG]
    -One of the rebels in the DS speech is Anderson from Sherlock, the actor is Jonathan Aris and apparently the guy is called Senator Jebel.

    I'm sure I recognised more but can't remember.

    Was that Biggs Darklighter in Blue Squadron? There was a sequence where they showed Blue Leader (Ben Daniels), then a black pilot, and then somebody who's a spitting image of Garrick Hagon. It happens in a matter of seconds, so difficult to say for sure.

    I loved Daniel Mays in Outcasts (a show that I really wish had made it past one season). I had no idea that he was in Rogue One and it pulled me out of the film for just a second - I was so excited to see him.

    @my kind of scum Man me too, Outcasts was great and the ending begs for a second series that sadly never came, it's a shame. The cast have all been and done successful things so there's that.

    I thought the same thing. I believe that was Biggs with Blue Squadron.

    Another creature cameo that I have not seen mentioned on here is during the scene where they are taking out the Imperial tank on Jedha, there is more than one shot of a Wampa in the background when Jyn is running away near the end of the scene.

    I think that might've been Moroff.

    Of all the people, I really wish we got to see Yularen. I actually tried looking around at the people in the backlground of that scene, did not see anyone looking like him.

    Not really an easter egg or cameo as such, but since you listed British actors, I thought I'd point out a Swedish one. The guy to the right dressed in blue is Swedish actor Fares Fares. He has one or two lines in the film, with a clear Swedish accent.

    Great find with Romod! I too, wished they would have included Yularen, or Tagge, but I'm satisfied with what we got.


    Red and Gold leaders were AWESOME to see!
