9 | I feel like the void left in my heart by episode VII has been filled now.

Chirrut Imwe, the blind Guardian of the Whills, is based on Zatoichi, the title protagonist of a long-running Japanese film franchise.
Lyra Erso: We know.
Galen Erso: Jyn, gather your things. It's time.
In the opening sequence, the Imperial shuttle is flying to Galen's farm to take him back to the Empire, and can be seen flying over Jyn's head as she runs back to the farm to warn her parents. The shuttle knows where Galen lives and presumably flies in a straight line, yet arrives well after Jyn arrives, leaving Jyn plenty of time to talk to her father and be hidden in the cave by her mother.
Hidden in the credits is the title "Keeper of the Holocron." A Holocron is a cube-like artifact used by the Jedi to store information that were first mentioned in the Dark Horse comic book series 'Dark Empire. On the official Star Wars site Leland Chee was in charge of continuity and received the honorary title of 'Keeper of the Holocron'.
