If it wasn't obvious enough, The Mandalorian is set to bridge the gap between the original trilogy and the sequels and as the show progresses, it's becoming more and more clear that we're entering familiar territory. In fact, Chapter 19 of the hit Star Wars series sneakily featured an Easter Egg that serves as a major callback to The Force Awakens.
Season 3's third episode was heavily centered on the returning Doctor Penn Pershing (Omid Abtahi) and Elia Kane (Katy O'Brian), Moff Gideon's Imperial officer. As the two were taking a quick stroll in the town square of Corusant, a familiar tune can be briefly heard in the background — John Williams' "March of the Resistance", a score the music icon composed for Episode VII.
While this wasn't the first time the theme was used, it's still quite indicative of the direction the show is heading to. It's also worth mentioning that Chapter 19 revealed that Pershing is still adamant about doing his cloning experiment and of course, we all know that the sequel trilogy heavily relied on that plot with Supreme Leader Snoke being revealed as a clone in The Rise of Skywalker.

Of course, we can expect future episodes to slowly but surely plant the seeds for the events of the sequel trilogy, although it looks like we're still a couple of seasons away from it coming to fruition. Jon Favreau recently confirmed that the script for Season 4 is already being penned and the idea of The Mandalorian spawning a fifth season hasn't been ruled out either.
The Mandalorian Season 3's latest episode is now streaming on Disney+.
