Trivia / Info:

  • Donald Glover, who voices a Stormtrooper in this segment, would later go on to portray a young version of Lando Calrissian in the film Solo: A Star Wars Story.
  • The song the Ewoks dance to in response to "Order 67" seems to be Daft Punk's Technologic.
  • The song that plays during Palpatine's last moments is "Baba O'Riley" by The Who.
  • Jar Jar's evil laughing and putting a black hood over his head when Palpatine apologizes for manipulating him into granting him emergency powers is a reference to Attack of the Clones when Jar Jar acted as an interim Senator when Padme Amidala went into hiding and oddly predicted the popular fan theory that Jar Jar is actually a Sith Lord based on evidence in The Phantom Menace.
