The Millennium Falcon is perhaps the most recognisable ship in the “Star Wars” universe. It will return in the untitled Han Solo spin-off that is currently being produced. New details about the ship in the upcoming movie have surfaced online. The following article contains minor spoilers.

Fans of the franchise already know that the Millennium Falcon once belonged to Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), which he lost to smuggler Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) in a game of sabacc. The scene may be featured in the upcoming film, as the timeline of the plot occurs long before the events in the original trilogy.

According to a report by Making Star Wars, Lando owns the Falcon in the spin-off. The ship was built by Corellian Engineering Corporation, and fans will soon see it as a then-brand new ship. There are minor changes compared to the original trilogy. The ship will reportedly have blue detailing around it and a white base coat paint.

Viewers will remember that the basic function of the Falcon in the early days was to transport goods. There will be elements on the ship that would show it as a cargo hauler. There will be an attachment at the front as well as two hooks at the elongated portion. The hooks allow it to drop the cargo if there’s trouble with the Empire. There will also be an access point for the cargo at the centre portion.

The untitled Han Solo spin-off is set to be released on May 24 in Australia. Details about the plot are yet to be announced. The movie will mainly focus on the adventures of the smuggler and his friend Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) before they joined the fight against the Empire.
