Here's how big 'Star Wars' ships are compared to real-life objects

Disney/LucasfilmTie-fighters take on the Millennium Falcon.

Exactly how big is the Millennium Falcon? How about Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle?

We used measurements from “Star Wars: the Force Awakens” book “Incredible Cross-Sections” to compare the ships in the film to iconic monuments and real-world animals and objects.

Keep reading to see how big the Millennium Falcon, Rey’s speeder, and more are in real life.


Let’s start with something relatively small. Rey’s Speeder isn’t too large.

Rey’s speeder would definitely beat an elephant in a race.


You could compare Poe Dameron’s X-Wing to the size of a yacht.

Poe’s X-Wing vs. a yacht.


Other ships are a lot larger. If you’ve ever seen the Rockefeller Christmas tree in person, Han Solo’s ship would just edge it out.

The Millennium Falcon is slightly larger than the iconic Christmas tree.


Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle would nearly stand as tall as Lady Liberty, herself.

If Kylo flew his ship next to Lady Liberty it would look tiny.


Han Solo’s ship, the Freighter, is more than 12 times the size of his Millennium Falcon.

Skye Gould/INSIDERForget Kylo’s ship. This one is massive.

Han’s Freighter is slightly smaller than the Empire State Building.


The Finalizer, the biggest ship from “The Force Awakens,” is comparable in size to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.

Skye Gould/INSIDERThere is no good place to land this.
