We are mere weeks away from getting to see the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and many fans are getting excited not just about the film itself but about the possibility of easter eggs that connect the film to the original films.

Director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) has been talking to Total Film/Games Radar about all things easter eggs saying that George Lucas gave his blessing to one such nugget, saying:

“a helmet we loved but didn’t know where to put it; there wasn’t really an opportunity to use it.”

But when Lucas visited the set and saw the prop, he liked it so much that Edwards immediately found a way to include it in the film.

Edwards didn’t give too much more away on the helmet but finished by saying:

“Whatever (Lucas) liked was pretty much guaranteed to be in the film”

What could the helmet signify, and where do you think it could appear? No spoilers here but let us know what you think below.

Starring Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, Alan Tudyk and Forest Whitaker, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in the UK on December 15th.
