Disney tried to hide the Millennium Falcon with shipping containers — but it’s on Google Maps

Millennium Falcon Google Maps
  • The Millennium Falcon used for the “Star Wars” movies is on Google Maps.
  • The iconic spaceship, which we believe was used in filming “The Last Jedi,” is surrounded by shipping containers, seemingly in an attempt to hide it. 
  • It’s hilarious, especially because Disney has been very secretive about the films. 

Disney has managed to keep details on all the new “Star Wars” movies really tight. But its strategy has been breached by Google Maps.

On Google Maps, you can look at the street view of addresses all across the world via satellite images. Satellite updates are typically between one and three years old.

Kevin Beaumont looked at Longcross Studios on Google Maps, and found something interesting: the Millennium Falcon is on site, or at least near a golf course close to the studio. And it’s surrounded by shipping containers, seemingly in an attempt to hide it. But Disney couldn’t hide from Google. 

Longcross Studios is a film and television production facility about 25 miles west of central London. Many huge films have been shot there including “Thor: The Dark World,” “Skyfall,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

This Millennium Falcon was likely hidden by shipping containers during filming of “The Last Jedi,” which was shot at Longcross Studios. “The Force Awakens” was filmed at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, UK. 

You can catch the Millennium Falcon (not surrounded by shipping containers) when “The Last Jedi” hits theatres December 15.
