We’ve already established that Dave Filoni and company peppered “The Clone Wars” with Indiana Jones Easter eggs. But why stop there?

With the “Rebels” picking back up sometime this fall, eagle-eared(?) viewers will hopefully catch more references to the big screen sequel. Maybe even one or two we won’t realize until we have proper hindsight come December 18!
