** Creator/HarryShearer playing a smarmy news anchor feels like a pre-emptive reference to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. Oddly, Shearer is the only actor to appear in both this movie and ''Film/ANewHope'' (he dubbed the voices of some of the Rebel pilots).

*** And of course, Creator/RickMoranis as a DorkAge Darth Vader is downright ''prescient'' in light of the whiny, Emo!Anakin shown in the prequel trilogy and the self-destructive fanboy Kylo Ren introduced in the sequel trilogy.

** At 60 km from wingtip to wingtip, the First Order flagship ''Supremacy'' in ''Film/TheLastJedi'' may actually be ''bigger'' than the ludicrously-oversized ''Spaceball One.''

** In ''Spaceballs'', a pair of Spaceball troopers try to arrest Lone Starr and Barf for illegal parking. In ''Film/TheLastJedi'', Finn and Rose are placed under arrest for a parking violation.

** And, now that ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' is out, some have noted similarities between Kylo Ren, and Dark Helmet. Both wear masks that they periodically remove, both talk to inanimate objects when alone, both prone to whiney outbursts, etc.

** And, now that ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' is out, some have noted similarities between Kylo Ren, and Dark Helmet. Both wear masks that they periodically remove, both talk to inanimate objects when alone, both prone to whiney outbursts, etc. The connection becomes even more hilarious after a big plot twist of ''Film/TheLastJedi''. [[spoiler:Dark Helmet, in an anticlimactic subversion of the "I am your father" twist, revealed that he was Lone Starr's "father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate," which essentially meant their relationship was "Absolutely nothing." Kylo Ren would similarly dismiss any belief (including fan speculation) that Rey had any special relation to the other main characters by revealing that her parents too were absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things.]]



** The movie foreshadowed one of the big plot twists of ''Film/TheLastJedi'': [[spoiler:Dark Helmet, in an anticlimactic subversion of the "I am your father" twist, revealed that he was Lone Starr's "father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate," which essentially meant their relationship was "Absolutely nothing." Kylo Ren, who already resembles Helmet, would similarly dismiss any belief (including fan speculation) that Rey had any special relation to the other main characters by revealing that her parents too were absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things.]]

** It's also the closest the film gets to emulating the famous cantina scene from the original ''Star Wars''.



** "They've gone to plaid!"

*** The closest we've come to a movie being available for home viewing before it's finished is when a work print of ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' was leaked to the internet during it's post-production.

*** And of course, RickMoranis as a DorkAge Darth Vader is downright ''prescient'' in light of the whiny, Emo!Anakin shown in the prequel trilogy and the self-destructive fanboy Kylo Ren introduced in the sequel trilogy.
