First off, Insider.com bring us a list of 11 things they learned about the film, including this handy quiz-winning nugget.
“One small nugget that somebody may not have picked up on is that as you fly up through that giant lightning tree and you get up to that top of the tree and she hears the voices of the Jedi, that starfield you’re looking at is exactly the ‘Episode IV’ starfield,” Tubach told Insider of the moment right before Rey hears the voices of the Jedi.
“That was very important to J.J. [Abrams],” he added. “He really wanted to have that moment harking back to the very beginning of ‘Star Wars,’ and that I think was bringing it all back together. Seeing those stars and seeing them look exactly that way. It does rotate, but what you end up on is in the beginning of ‘Episode IV.'”
