The name of the prison planet that Jyn is rescued on is called Wobani, which is an anagram for the name Obi-Wan.

Gary Whitta Cameo

It’s unclear if you can actually see him in the movie itself, but Rogue One screenwriter Gary Whitta filmed a background cameo as an X-Wing pilot on the Yavin 4 base. The writer joked on twitter that his cameo did not make the final film:


Insidious 3 Dermot Mulroney

Dermot Mulroney

You may not see actor Dermot Mulroney on screen in Rogue One, but you can hear him. Or rather, you can hear him play the cello on the soundtrack, because Mulroney has been playing that instrument since grade school and has been playing in the orchestra for composer Michael Giacchino for years now.

Voice Cameos

Rogue One utilized the voice of Star Wars Rebels cast members Steve Blum (Zeb), Vanessa Marshall (Hera Syndulla), Sam Witwer (Darth Maul) and Tom Kane (Yoda). In addition, Clone Wars voice star James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) lent his voice to Rogue One. Even Star Wars Rebels creator and executive producer Dave Filoni can be heard somewhere in the movie.

Along with those familiar voice actors, some key names from behind the scenes provided brief voice cameos. The film’s composer Michael Giacchino had a voice cameo along with director Tony Gilroy (who reportedly had a key part in fixing Rogue One in reshoots and post-production) and his brother John Gilroy. There were also these Star Wars veterans giving their voices to the movie:
