Star Wars Millennium Falcon (the real one) spotted at English golf course

November 8, 2017

Add this to the list of things you don’t expect to see at your local golf club: the iconic Millennium Falcon spaceship from Star Wars.

Some diehard Star Wars fans were recently digging for clues to the new movies online when they spotted Han Solo’s preferred transportation vehicle next to a golf course in Surrey, England, according to a post from the Daily Mail.

But what’s it doing there? Well, the Star Wars folks filmed parts of the upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” at Longcross Studios in Surrey, and it appears that after using the massive prop the studio chose to store it outside, surrounded by large packing containers and partially covered by a tarp. But they didn’t hide it well enough, as it can be seen clearly in these Google Maps satellite photos, just yards from Barrow Hills Golf Club and the movie studios.

You can see a close-up version of the photo below.

And, for good measure, here’s a supercut of the thing “in action.” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” hits theaters on Dec. 15.
