Added DiffLines:

* The film's [[Main/{{Novelization}} novelization]] begins with Luke having a dream in which he envisions [[WhatIf a life he might have had]] if he had never left Tatooine. In it, for one, Luke married [[https://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Camie_Marstrap Camie]], who appeared in a deleted scene from ''Film/ANewHope''.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ending scene, a group of slave kids tell each other the legend of the Jedi before getting scolded by their master, and one of them (bonus points for being a blond boy) sneaks outside to look at the sky, just like Anakin and Luke grew up, as the Force theme plays.


* Kylo's murder of Palpatine and the battle with the PraetorianGuard is almost the exact inverse of Yoda's confrontation with Palpatine in ''Revenge of the Sith''. Yoda dispatched the Emperor's Guards using the Force [[CurbStompBattle with a single wave of his hand]] before engaging their master in a long and protracted duel, Kylo kills Snoke in a single use of the Force before fighting the [[EliteMooks royal guards]] in an intense and violent battle.

* If you blink, you'll miss it, but during Poe's mutiny, when Lt. Connix closes the bridge door, it closes in a stop-motion style, a clearly delibarate homage to the effects that were used to represent Death Star doors closing in ''Film/ANewHope''.

* The First Order dreadnaught's turret guns being ill-suited in defending against fighter attack, requiring sending out TIE fighters, was the same design deficiency of the Death Star.

Added DiffLines:

* The Blue Squadron in Rouge One is destroyed by Imperial forces during the battle on Scarif. In the battle with the First Order's dreadnought, Resistance loses their Cobalt Squadron -another named after the shade of blue.

* In ''The Force Awakens'', Kylo Ren told Han Solo "I know what I have to do, but I don't know if I have the strength to do it", shortly before murdering him. In ''The Last Jedi'', Kylo tells Supreme Leader Snoke "I know what I have to do", shortly before killing him, too. Thematically, the circumstances are opposite: in ''TFA'', Kylo was visibly tormented and struggling with the decision to murder his own loving and morally pure father, in ''TLJ'', Kylo is calmly determined and resolute when he decides to assassinate his own cruel and tyrannical master. In ''TFA'', Kylo impaled Han on a [[RedIsViolent unstable, demonic-looking dark red]] lightsaber when Han was in a moment of loving vulnerability, in ''TLJ'' Kylo impales Snoke on a [[LightIsGood pure, almost angelic bright blue]] lightsaber when Snoke was in a moment of arrogant gloating.

* In ''Film/ANewHope'', Han gives Luke a brief lecture on the importance of having the right calculations when jumping to lightspeed, or you could crash into something. Admiral Holdo’s HeroicSacrifice shows us ''exactly'' the kind of damage a ship travelling at lightspeed through a another ship can do.

Added DiffLines:

* Rey is so excited to be the ''Falcon'''s gunner because she's only been the pilot before.

Added DiffLines:

* Snoke wears a ring with an obsidian stone taken from Darth Vader's castle on Mustafar, which was first seen in ''Rogue One''.


* When Leia and Kylo Ren sense the presence of each other during a space battle, ShotReverseShot is used between the two characters in the same way it did in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' with Luke and Vader.

* When Leia and Kylo Ren sense the presence of each other during a space battle, ShotReverseShot is used between the two characters in the same way it did in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' with Luke and Vader. The use of cross-fades rather than straight cuts makes this reference more obvious.


* In ''Rogue One'', Admiral Raddus employed a spectacular variation of RammingAlwaysWorks by pushing a Star Destroyer ''into another Star Destroyer'' and then into the Imperial shield gate. How does ''The Last Jedi'' [[SerialEscalation top this?]] By having Admiral Holdo ram the ship named after Raddus into Snoke's flagship ''[[UpToEleven at light speed.]]''

** Briefly touched upon in ''Rebels'', where the Empire stuck a regular tracker on the ''Ghost'' before it jumped into hyperspace. The intent was to send in Imperial forces after the ''Ghost'' dropped out of hyperspace--if the tracker was deactivated before then, then the Imperials would know, but the rebels evaded this problem by unattaching that part of the ship while still in hyperspace.

Added DiffLines:

* Holdo ramming the ''Raddus'' into the ''Supremacy'' appears as a massive burst of light across an otherwise black screen, accompanied by [[SilenceIsGolden dead silence]], followed by a loud explosion, making it similar in both audio and video to the ''Slave I'''s seismic charges from ''Film/AttackOfTheClones''.


* [[spoiler: Kylo Ren betraying Snoke, killing him, and taking his place]] calls to mind the Tragedy of Darth Plagueis that Palpatine told Anakin in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith''.
