Today my nerd heart exploded because I got to climb aboard the Millennium Falcon on Star Wars day! The Millennium Falcon Experience is making a few stops around the country and today for May the Fourth, it was in Atlanta! So I pulled out my favorite Star Wars gear and stepped on board!
Check out the video of the whole experience.
Can you believe this thing is fan made? It looks amazing. I'm missing the cape closet though. My favorite part was the cockpit and the dash sliding forward! There were lights everywhere and they did a really amazing job.
The Millennium Falcon, the ship that reportedly made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, will
soon be docked at a spot in the galaxy not so far away. A replica of the interior of the iconic ship,
as it appears in Solo: A Star Wars Story, will be open to explore during “May the Fourth” weekend
starting with Star Wars Night at the Atlanta Braves game. Friday-Sunday.
Constructed by skilled fan builders, the Falcon’s hold and cockpit reproduce in every detail the
interior set seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story, from the iconic holochess game table to the dazzling
control panels lining the cockpit. With the Falcon’s reputation for blasting out of docking bays at
lightspeed, you’ll definitely want to swing by and have your photo taken.
