The official Star Wars website shared some of the little pieces of dialogue that was uttered by minor characters in Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens. One alien actually said “Kojima” somewhere in the film.
Robert Stambler is the sound designer for Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens and he played a “Red Eyed Sand Alien”. He shouted “Kojima” while looking at BB-8. It’s possible this dialogue may have been hard to hear as it sounds like The First Order were attacking Rey and Finn during this time.
The reason this is significant is because Hideo Kojima and J.J. Abrams are buddies. Many people believe this is not the only Kojima easter egg in the film. C3-PO has a red arm in the new movie that looks similar to the one that Big Boss has in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
As noted by Kotaku, Kojima translates to “small island”, but that does not make sense in the dialogue if the alien said it while watching BB-8 run away. Not to mention there aren’t any islands in the desert planet of Jakku.
It would be interesting to watch Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens again to see if you can hear “Kojima” being uttered. Many people picked up a lot of cool easter eggs while watching the movie more than once. This includes cameos from famous actors and more.
