Let’s be generous with our count and estimate that we could probably fit everybody who has experienced up-close-and-personal looks at the Millenium Falcon’s cockpit since 1977 into a commercial airliner’s coach seating and have generous room to spare. Not only that, but those charmed few are nearly entirely cast and crew members, their friends and family, and a few unthinkably fortunate STAR WARS fans.
Make yourself at home at the controls of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy with this 360-degree photo of the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit!
The rest of us have had to settle for wishing upon more far, far away stars than we could ever count to look upon that space with our own two eyes. Well, no more wishing.
After years of settling for admiring countless hobbyists construct impressive drone versions of Han Solo’s pride and joy from meticulous breakdowns of its inner workings and even taking it for an imaginary spin thanks to Google Maps, we’re now getting our best guess yet at what the galaxy looks like through Han, Chewbacca or Lando Calrissian’s eyes.
By all means, head over to the official STAR WARS Instagram account. Like, now. Right now. The verified social media gatekeepers of the legendary saga have compiled a 360-degree panoramic tour of the Falcon’s cockpit for all to see. From ceiling to floor and all around, it is indeed a dramatic, cool peek into the late Han Solo’s most cherished memories, from the Kessel Run to the most tense battles of the Rebellion.
