Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon Is Still Hanging Out on Google Maps

The Star Wars galaxy might be far, far away, but that didn’t stop somebody from parking their YT-1300f Corellian light freighter somewhere south of England. That’s right, you can still spot what looks like the Millennium Falcon on the Google Maps Satellite view right here on Earth.

On Friday, someone on Reddit offered up a reminder that the Falcon was hiding in plain sight at Longcross Studios, a production location in the South East region of England.

Anyone can find it by going to the following address on Google Maps:

Longcross Studios, Chobham Ln, Longcross, Chertsey KT16 0EE, UK

The ship itself is almost directly east of the Longcross Studios location marker, just southeast of Chobham Ln and fairly close to Barrow Hills Golf Club. In fact, you might have an easier time finding it if you go to “Barrow Hills Golf Club, Longcross Rd, Longcross, Chertsey KT16 0DS, UK” and then just look slightly northwest. It’s partially covered and surrounded by shipping containers.

The 'Falcon' sure is a far way from home.

The ship we can still see on Google Maps seems like the “original” that’s been in every movie so far with a fork-like front section. Which is noticeably different from when it’s brand-new in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Perhaps the earliest photo of the ship parked at Longcross Studios is supposedly from March of last year, but it resurfaces on the internet every few months. It happened in June 2017, and then again in November, perhaps as a fun reminder leading up to the release of The Last Jedi.

And now, fresh off the heels of the Solo trailer, interest has surged yet again.

It’s only a matter of time before some scoundrel flies away with the thing.

Who’ll steal it next? Lando? Han? Rey? Unkar Plutt? The Irving Boys? Maybe even Ducain!


Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released in theaters May 25, 2018.

Go ahead and rewatch the trailer for the movie, because you know you want to.

With the end of Game of Thrones almost upon us (Season 8 premieres on April 14), speculation over the final six episodes is at all time high. Will fans be happy with the ending? Will the wait have been worth it? The cast and crew haven’t revealed much, but a recent interview suggests that not everyone will be happy with the way Game of Thrones Season 8 finishes the series.

It’s been all but confirmed that Avengers: Endgame will feature some sort of time travel, but we still have no idea how exactly that will work. Now, however, a new fan theory may finally explain how the Avengers defeat Thanos and reveal why everyone seems so chill in the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. In short: It’s all about time loops.

For many Kingdom Hearts fans, the release of Kingdom Hearts III represents the culminating moment for a journey that’s lasted almost two decades, smashing various Disney worlds and Final Fantasy elements together along the way. Plenty of gamers have grown up dreaming about the first main entry since KHII came out in 2005 — perhaps most of all, Haley Joel Osment, who’s voiced series protagonist Sora since the very beginning.

We’re almost halfway through True Detective Season 3, and the identity of this season’s villain is still a mystery. There are plenty of suspects, but one particularly interesting theory argues that the murderer may be one person you probably didn’t expect: Amelia Reardon. Did Wayne Hays’ wife (played by Carmen Ejogo) kidnap Will and Julie Purcell and kill one of them? It might sound ridiculous, but she may have had a pretty good motive.

It’s been over a month since Nintendo unleashed Super Smash Bros. Ultimate onto the world, and as more professional players share their early tiers lists, it’s quickly become clear which characters are best and which kind of stink. Now, with three new Smash Bros. Ultimate tier lists from three of the top players around, it’s becoming clear that one character is far and away the top pick in competitive Smash.
