    Another, VERY HIDDEN EASTER EGG was revealed! And it's fun!

    It turns out that the patter on Lando's scarf is based on the iconic Death Star lights, and the angle is taken exactly from a frame during Luke and Leia's chasm jump.

    Sure someone else has pointed it out but my favorite "easter egg" Was the parallels between Han and Rey. Rey is waiting on her family on Jakku and when she leaves she remarks she has already been away too long. Han says the same thing when he wants to go back to get Qira. Han is always talking about how much he needs to get back to Corellia and everyone is always floored as to why anyone would want to go back to a plant as rundown as Corellia. Something people (including Han) would do to Rey many years later when she said she has to get back to Jakku. I thought that was pretty neat.

    Saw Two-Tubes as well, might be my favorite looking character since Disney took over!

    Ok so this is a rather obvious one but they hide the Coaxiam in the same place as Han Luke Chewie & Ben hide when the Millennium Falcon is captured by the Death Star in ANH though the floor is a lot more shiny in SOLO.

    That was one of my favorites since the place hasn't been seen since ANH. For me, that was even more of an easter egg than the dejarik, since it has been used a lot since.

    The Benthic Two-Tubes was my favorite easter egg. Nice callback to RO and the recent SW comics

    I had to wait a week to go to movies, so I'm a bit late to the party. Here are my two cents:
    • When Han returns to meet Lando for the second time, he pretends to be pissed off and to almost hit him, and then he hugs him. This is very similar to their encounter at Cloud City where Lando is the one that pretends being pissed off before hugging Han. (Edit: Just noticed someone else also caught this on page 3).
    • First time we see Han speaking Wookie language. Perhaps a first a non-wookie? At least on the big screen.
    • First time subtitles are shown during a dialogue in Wookie language.
    • First time we see a potential human-droid romantic relationship in SW.
    • During the first scene, Han uses a fake thermal-detonator as a leverage to negotiate with his captors. This reminds us when Leia did a similar thing at Jabba’s palace.
    • This is the second time Han is almost eaten by a furry species: first by Ewoks. Actually, in the SW timeline, Ewoks would be the second one.
    • Perhaps not an Easter egg, but an interesting reference: in ROTJ, Lando promises “I’ll take good care of her. She won’t get scratch”. Impressive that he offered that promised after what Han did to the Falcon the very first time. LOL

    Not exactly an egg, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time we've ever actually seen Corellia on screen, in spite of the fact that the Millennium Falcon has been referred to as a Corellian ship for decades.

    Some easter eggs that were kinda hiding in plain sight:
    • The planet Mimban originated from the first EU story, Splinter of the Mind's Eye.
    • The Cloud Riders swoop gang originated from Marvel's classic Star Wars comic.
    • Enfys Nest referring to the men, women, and children from her mother's story reminded me of Anakin's infamous line from Attack of the Clones.
    • The first cinematic appearance of the Pykes from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Crimson Dawn is said to have somewhat of an alliance with them, which makes sense considering how the Pyke Synidcate was a part or Maul's Shadow Collective.
    • The first time the famous planet Kessel and its spice mines are seen in a Star Wars movie. It also appeared in the pilot episode of Star Wars Rebels and the idea of Wookiee slaves is continued from that episode.
    • There was a Gonk droid that participated in L3's "liberation".
    • L3-37's name is a reference to the coded language often referred to as 1337. (There are also 3 L's in Millenium Falcon.)
    • Possible naming pattern of droids in standalone Star Wars movies? (K2, L3, ?)

    @The Hero With No Fear Well done on that list....I've also see L3-37 being a nod to the "LEET" programming language, which is designed to be confusing, and also "self modifying" i.e. self learning. Sounds a lot like L3 to me.

    So are you surmising that the droid in the Boba Fett movie will be "M4"?

    not quite an easter egg, but an amusing double entendre that i just got last night:
    Beckett talks about learning to play the valechord.
    his girlfriend's name is Val.

    sounds like it's probably an in-joke between them. : D

    According to the guide, that's how she got her name.

    The easter eggs are so carefully planted and with style that it's a real treat to search for them and talk about them.

    They don't feel forced like they did in R1. I'm really happy because of this movie. :D
    A feelgood SW movie with zero amount of pretentiousness and 'drama'.

    For me, this movie is the 2nd best thing in Disney era after TFA.

    Apparently, Tom Cruise was a member of Deathwatch/Crimson Dawn.​

    There is some dialogue about the number of "portions" when they are in the slums of Corellia too.

    Not an easter-egg but in this weeks SW comic issue 49 the Coaxium fuel is mentioned. A nice little tie-in with the Solo movie

    Every time I see Solo again and listen Han's story about that guy named Needles who tried "something" with his ship and died for it, I will think in Back to The Future II and III and the drag race.

    Edit while typing this: made some research and it seems Jon Kasdan revealed it's already a reference to Douglas J. Needles from BTTF.

    So yes, definetly I will think in that Needles:D.
