It’s only the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy! The Millennium Falcon is part of the magic of Solo: A Star Wars Story, a journey that sets the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
The Millennium Falcon see on this film is not the same audiences know and love but a clean version imagined by the filmmakers in its “original” state when it belonged to Lando. The challenge for the filmmakers was preserving the legacy feel as far as possible while presenting a fresher version
of it. Audiences have to believe that, at the end of the day when Han gets the Falcon, the ship has evolved from what they see in “Solo” to the version with which they are already so familiar.
Let’s take a look at this facts about the Millennium Falcon of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
