Trivia: When Finn turns on the chess game, it carries on from when it was turned off in Star Wars: A New Hope.

Trivia: When Rey has her vision after touching Luke's lightsaber, she hears a voice at the end that says, "Rey, these are your first steps." The voice that says "Rey" was a partial sound bite taken from the late Sir Alec Guinness saying "afraid," and Ewan McGregor came in to record "these are your first steps." So you're hearing both the voice of old Ben Kenobi and young Obi Wan Kenobi speaking.

Trivia: Rey and Poe never interact with each other in the entire film.

Trivia: Finn pulls the Jedi training ball seen in A New Hope out of a box while looking for bandages to tend Chewie's wounds.

Trivia: General Hux never blinks throughout the movie.

Trivia: When Poe and Finn steal the TIE fighter, a Wilhelm scream can be heard.

Trivia: The Millennium Falcon has a rectangular radar dish. Its circular one was knocked off during the Battle of Endor.

Trivia: Carrie Fisher's daughter has a small part - she is the young woman at the rebel base dressed in light brown, and her hair is styled in the famous Princess Leia buns. She has one line and is seen in the background quite a bit.

Trivia: James Bond actor Daniel Craig has an uncredited cameo playing the stormtrooper that releases Rey from the chair. He was filming Spectre on a nearby soundstage and was offered the chance to appear in the movie.

Trivia: This is the first "Star Wars" movie in which Kenny Baker is not cast as R2-D2. Instead, he is credited as "R2-D2 Consultant."

Trivia: For filming, Panavision provided two cameras to the crew. Their nicknames were Death Star, and Millennium Falcon.

Trivia: In Rey's force vision, before she sees R2-D2 and Luke's robot hand, she runs down a hallway - the same one from The Empire Strikes Back during the final lightsaber duel between Luke and Darth Vader. This sequence was originally going to be longer, with her seeing the duel itself from a new perspective (one of the reasons Darth Vader is one of the Force Awakens toys).

Trivia: When Rey is sneaking around Starkiller Base we see a squad of stormtroopers run by and hear the line "we think they may be splitting up". The same line from Star Wars after Han and the group exit the trash compactor.

Trivia: John Williams did not want to compose the music for the bar scene because he thought it would be too derivative of the original. So the music in the bar is composed by an uncredited Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the musical Hamilton.

Trivia: In a deleted scene we see Unkar Plutt confront Rey on Takodana, she readies her blaster but is disarmed by Plutt. Chewbacca then comes to assist Rey and tears Plutt's arm right off.
