"Regarding the Easter Eggs in the Star Wars prequels (I was the Animation Director on those movies), the "rule" was, animators could add something to the background as long as it did not pull the audience's eye from the primary focus of the shot. The "Eggs" added extra detail"
―Coleman on Twitter[src]
