A satellite picture of the Millenium Falcon has surfaced again on the web. ‘Star Wars’ are roasting Lucasfilm once again. The picture shows the ship poorly hidden behind containers.
This isn’t the first time fans stumbled into “hidden” ‘Star Wars’ business. It isn’t the first time the Millenium Falcon is found either.
Yes, the Millenium Falcon hits once again
The Millenium Falcon was found by a Google Maps enthusiast recently. Chewie and Solo’s ship was spotted on the outsides of London, at Longcross Studios.
“Lol Disney tried to hide the Millennium Falcon by surrounding it with shipping containers. Also, it’s on Google Maps,” wrote Twitter user Kevin Beaumont.
Several high-budget films have been filmed at Longcross. Including ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ ‘Skyfall,’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’
This isn’t the first time fans stumbled onto “hidden” ‘Star Wars’ business.
In 2016, an urban explorer group came across the ‘Episode VIII’ and found the Millenium Falcon, aka the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.
And, to be fair, this isn’t the first time this exact satellite picture from Google makes the rounds on the internet. The picture, that dates March 2017, first circulated online in June this year.
The Millenium Falcon was last seen in ‘The Force Awakens’ under Rey’s control on her way to find Lucas Skywalker.
The ship is also expected to pop up in the upcoming Ron Howard helmed Han Solo adventure.
The find comes just a month before the released of the latest ‘Star Wars’ installment film, ‘The Last Jedi‘, which hits theaters on December 15.

Brand new saga
While this new sighting of the Millenium Falcon is not that surprising, Lucasfilm did take fans by surprise last week with a new announcement.
The studios said that ‘Rhe Last Jedi’ director, Rian Johson, was working on a brand new trilogy in the franchise, separate from the Skywalker Saga.
“We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.
“He’s a creative force, and watching him craft The Last Jedi from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.”
“We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi,” Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement.
“Star Wars is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. We can’t wait to continue with this new series of films.”
For now, no details have been released on the new trilogy, but what’s sure is that this franchise might never end.
