Solo: A Star Wars Story Features a Very Different Millennium Falcon

"Long before Luke Skywalker rudely called the Millennium Falcon 'a piece of junk,' it was a sleek, clean vessel. Or at least, it was before Han Solo gets his hands on it in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story prequel film.

Solo screenplay Jon Kasdan — who co-wrote the script with his father Lawrence Kasdan, the veteran co-writer of The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens — told EW:

'Where Han gave it a certain shabby coolness and a dinged up quality that reflected where he was at that point in his life, this Falcon reflects its owner very clearly in its shape and aesthetic and his needs, even if those needs be a little more space to entertain… One of the things Larry and I had talked about was the Falcon should always reflect the personality of its captain.

But [Alden] Ehrenreich told EW that the Falcon’s eventual banged-up state isn’t entirely an accident, but a matter of practicality:

'It’s safer in the galaxy to fly something that looks like a piece of junk. People underestimate you — especially if you’re up to no good. Kinda like how you’re more likely to get pulled over if you’re driving a Lamborghini.'"
