E.T. In The Galactic Senate
Last Updated: 4/9/2018
This easter egg is seen only once during the Galactic Senate hearing.
During the hearing of the Galactic Senate in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, after Queen Amidala announces that she no longer has confidence in Chancellor Valorum’s leadership and proposes a vote for a new chancellor the camera moves around the room of representatives for a brief moment and you can see a group of 3 E.T. aliens, presumably representing E.T.’s home planet, Brodo Asogi.
While this easter egg may seem random to some, E.T. fans may remember a certain scene in Steven Spielberg’s movie, E.T. where Yoda makes a surprise appearance as a Halloween costume.
It turns out that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg did this as a favor to one another and promised to include easter eggs of these two characters in each others movies.
