Google Maps reveals Disney's hiding place for Millenium Falcon

Google Maps reveals Disney's hiding place for Millenium Falcon

So we can only imagine how the Rebel Alliance fighter would feel if he found out that his beloved space ship is now in a field in Surrey.

The same story says the model ship was used at the studios for the filming of "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi", which will be released in studios next month.

What, we ask you, could be more gloriously geeky than scouring Google Earth for a shot of the Millennium Falcon?

Eagle-eyed Star Wars fans have spotted Han Solo's famous spaceship on Google Maps, just off the M3.

Film bosses thought a barrier of tall trees and shipping containers would be enough to keep the prying public eye at bay - and they would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for meddling Google Earth.

Aerial images of the Falcon have now been shared across the internet.

The Falcon has appeared in the trailer for the eighth installment in the Star Wars saga, with Luke Skywalker seen going back aboard for the first time since Return of the Jedi.

The Falcon is hidden from ground-level spies by multicolored shipping containers, but its distinctive shape is evident from above.

It is still unknown whether the Falcon will survive another battle, but fans only need wait until 15 December to find out.
