Obviously, there's plenty of references to Original Trilogy in Rogue One (duh!)

Are there any references to Prequel Trilogy specific content in Rogue One?


Indeed there are. These are all the prequel trilogy references to my knowledge.

  • Coruscant makes a brief appearance in Jyn's flashback, the signature skyline can be seen in the background.
  • Vader's lair is also confirmed to be on the planet Mustafar itself. (Confirmed by LFL Creative / Story Development Executive Pablo Hidalgo)
  • A Clone Turbo/Juggernaut tank (seen in Revenge of the Sith) is shown as Jyn's prisoner transport.

  • Jimmy Smits and Genevieve O’Reilly both reprise their prequel roles as Bail Organa and Mon Mothma respectively.
  • Bail Organa mentions the Clone Wars, which was briefly mentioned in Ep. 4, and unfolded from Ep. 2 to 3.
  • Saw Gerrera, while not necessarily a Prequel Trilogy character, is a prequel trilogy era character created by George Lucas who made his debut in The Clone Wars animated series.
  • Jyn supposedly has a doll of an opee sea killer (from The Phantom Menace). I would go to the Wiki to get an exact list. Dec 21 '16 at 20:14

Off the top of my head:

  • Bail Organa, and the actor who played him

  • (Possibly) the planet Mustafar (if that's where Vader's castle is)

  • Coruscant (though only see briefly, in the flashback to Jyn's childhood in their apartment there)

    Just confirmed it's Mustafar. Jimmy Smits reprises his role as Bail Organa.

    The Death Star itself, since we see a design for it in Attack of the Clones, and the skeleton of it in Revenge of the Sith.

    @CBredlow But the Death Star wasn't prequel specific. Indeed, in the prequels it was a reference to the originals.
