We are blasting off to another galaxy, but this time it is not with Luke, Rey or Ahsoka.
You might not have noticed that Spider-Man: No Way Home paid a touching tribute to George Lucas’s Star Wars trilogy. These are the Easter eggs that you have been searching for.
LEGO must be giddy right now as the (already expensive) sales of its products continue to rise. Death Star setThey will surely go through the roof. Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe may be light years apart, but we all knew that the Force is strong in Star Wars.
You might recall Ned Leeds (2017’s Spider-Man) and Peter Parker embarking on the daunting task of creating a LEGO Death Star. Tragically, it was destroyed after Ned discovered Peter was Spider-Man. He dropped it in shock.

Jump forward to No Way Home and the Death Star has been rebuilt (Death Star 2.0 if you will) – only to be shattered once more when Dum-E knocked it off the table. If you didn’t notice it, the destructions of two Death Stars are actually a nod toward the OG trilogy.
It’s possible that you may remember 1978’s Star Wars: A New Hope. This movie featured Luke’s X-Wing invasion, where the first Death Star was destroyed. In 1983’s Return of the Jedi, the sequel Death Star appeared. It was bigger and more technologically advanced but suffered the same fate as its predecessor.
Spider-Man: Far From Home’s lack of LEGO Death Star mirrors The Empire Strikes Back’s MIA status for the intergalactic superweapon. Better yet, No Way Home’s Death Star is even unfinished before it was destroyed – just like it was in Return of the Jedi.
Were the Death Star’s remnants featured in The Rise of Skywalker. Can we expect to see a LEGO version of Spider-Man 6 in an alternate Spider-Man 6?
If you recall some calling it out in Homecoming as a plot hole, the Death Star is even more difficult for geek fandom. Peter and Ned were both astonished at the size of the set. Ned stated that it contained 3,449 parts. Problem is that the 2016 remodelled Death Star set had only 4,016 pieces.
Anyone thinking Ned might have pulled an old set out of his attic, the eagle-eyed fans pointed out that the set also included Emperor Palpatine’s 2016 version. The Simpsons quote: “I hope someone lost their job over that”.
We’ll let it slide, considering that the second Death Star has a larger size than the first.
The Death Star, or what is left of it, is one of Peter’s few remaining parts of his life. This part was able to make it to Spider-Man 4 and will be part of a new trilogy. Peter was seen moving into an apartment in a poor-looking building and unpacking his belongings.
He placed a statue of Emperor Palpatine, complete with Force lightning, on his desk. It’s a nod to Return of the Jedi and captures the essence of Palp’s shocking confrontation with Luke and Darth Vader.
No Way Home can be seen as the end of the Spider-Man era, similar to Return of the Jedi. There is also a sense that Jon Watts is his very own George Lucas. He was the first MCU director ever to complete a trilogy. Russos: We don’t count Captain America Civil War as an Avengers Infinity War prequel.
No Way Home did a great job with the Star Wars Easter egg. The Death Star return was also a good idea. Peter’s love for the Wampas, Wookiees and Wampas is part of his geeky charm. Captain America: Civil War featured a line about Ant-Man tripping like the AT-ATs on Hoth.
Now that Spider-Man 4 appears to be on its way, all eyes will be on whether the next trilogy will bring a new generation of heroes. Miles Morales, a plucky and determined Rey learner, is Peter, who is an exiled Luke Skywalker.
