Disney Tried To Hide The Millennium Falcon, But It Couldn’t Hide From Google

Disney Tried To Hide The Millennium Falcon, But It Couldn’t Hide From Google

Disney has tried hard to keep as much information about the upcoming Star Wars film as secret as possible, but in this age of digital information it's a difficult task.

While it's still only 36 days until The Last Jedi is released around the world, an eagle-eyed internet sleuth has stumbled upon a legendary part of the movie being hidden from view.

Online writer, Kevin Beaumont, has posted a screenshot of Longcross Studios on Google Maps to Twitter.

Ah, Disney you thought people on the ground would never see the trusty Millennium Falcon and yet you never thought of the people in the sky.

The image shows the awesome spaceship encased in a wall of different coloured shipping containers - probably trying to ensure no one walking through the area knew what was being filmed there.

The film and TV production studios are less than an hour's drive south-west of central London.

Kevin's tweet has attracted hundreds of likes and comments, with one person writing: "My big Star Wars fan colleague walks his dog in this area and he almost pissed himself when he found out that we were walking next to the Millennium Falcon every day."

Latest Trailer For The Mandalorian Series Two Drops Ahead Of October Disney+ Release

published ata month ago

The spacecraft only appeared briefly in the trailer for the upcoming movie, so fans know it's definitely going to feature in the eighth instalment. Rian Johnson will be directing the new movie, telling the New York Times: "The heart of the movie is Luke and Rey. It follows all the other characters, but its real essence is the development of the two of them.

"And it's absolutely tied up in that question of, 'What is Luke's attitude toward the Jedi?"

It will be interesting to see how the film sets up the plot for the ninth film, which was previously thought to be the last one in the franchise. But Mr Johnson has revealed that they aren't intending on retiring the epic series just yet.

He wants to bring on a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, with Disney and Lucas Films releasing a statement saying: "In shepherding this new trilogy, which is separate from the episodic Skywalker saga, Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored."

It could be a tough sell to keep audiences keen on the storyline after putting Skywalker and his pals to sleep; only time will tell if it's able to live up to the hype.
