Cell 2187 references the short film 21-87, directed by Arthur Lipsett, a film that reportedly inspired George Lucas to make the film THX-1138. Finn's character was given the designation FN-2187 as a nod of nostalgic appreciation from JJ Abrams.
Fact: Many Star Wars fans mistake some important Star Wars lines. For example, many people have stated this famous line "Luke, I am you father" when really it is "no, I am your father". Another important line is the exchange in episode 5 on hoth. Many people say that Leia said "I'd rather kiss a wookie!" But she really said "I'd just as soon kiss a wookie!" Pay attention peeps!!! 😋 #starwars #darthvader #lukeskywalker #leiaorgana #hansolo #episode5
