When one thinks of Lucasfilm, two perks should immediately come to mind: star Wars And the Indiana Jones (Although bonus points if you also consider willow). The Indiana Jones The films included a handful of star Wars Easter eggs (among others) over the decades, including hieroglyphs C-3PO and R2-D2 spotted in Raiders of the Lost Astronomy The nightclubs at the beginning Temple of Death Being called Club Obi-Wan. On the other hand, the last episode of Andorwhich Disney+ subscribers can stream now, featured the adorable Indiana Jones Easter egg, which directly calls out the second installment of the movie series.

At the end of “The Ax Forgets,” we briefly meet Stellan SkarsgĂ„rd, Luthen Rael, a rebellious agent who met Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor in “Reckoning” and puts him back on the mission run by Faye Marsai Phil Sarth. As Luthen plays with his radio and anxiously awaits an update on how the job is going, we see some artifacts on the shelves behind him in his Coruscant shop, and if you look closely to the right of an actor, you’ll see two familiar orange stones in the corner.
