When Han Solo encounters the Millennium Falcon in his very own Star Wars spinoff film, the iconic ship will look a little different. According to a new report from MakingStarWars.com, the Falcon — like Han himself — will look younger and “brand new.”
As many Star Wars fans are undoubtedly aware, Han didn’t originally own the Falcon; Lando Calrissian did. The report claims this will be the case in Han Solo, which means we may get to see Han win the ship from Lando in a game of cards, as Han famously told Leia he did in Empire Strikes Back.
The Millennium Falcon will reportedly look “brand new” and have “blue detailing all over it with a white base coat of paint.” According to the report, the blue detailing looks similar to an old, unused Return of the Sith design, which you can see in the piece itself.
What’s more, the Falcon will be in use during the film, but not as a smuggler’s ship. In fact, it will serve the purpose it was designed for: hauling cargo. The report describes this as “an attachment that hooks into the front of the ship’s front ‘forks’ and that elongates the front of the ship. It looks seamless but can also detached to drop a shipment of spice if Imperial entanglements get too complicated. The center of the ship allows for access to the cargo.”
Based on a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the Han Solo spinoff stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, in addition to Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Woody Harrelson. The as-yet-untitled film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
