It doesn’t get any better than the Millennium Falcon, where we’ll see this fastest hunk of junk in all of its glory in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The ships of Star Wars hold a special place in the heart of a great many fans, and none so much as the Millennium Falcon. She’s one of the few Star Wars icons to appear in all three Star Wars trilogies. The Falcon is home to heroes and a place of discovery and wonder.

What’s more, the Millennium Falcon is so heavily intertwined in the Star Wars saga that the heavily modified YT-1300 freighter is primarily considered a fully developed character in the expansive universe. Her continual development is an ongoing part of the story. The first trailers for Solo: A Star Wars Story proves the standalone tale is no exception to this, giving us our first look at the Millennium Falcon, all shiny and new.

Hello! What Have We Here?

One of the main design elements of the original Star Wars trilogy was that everything should look “lived-in.” Dirt was often rubbed into gear and equipment for effect. Photographers, like Rä di Martino, venturing to the site of the oldest Episode IV sets in Tunisia find the locations still look well-preserved for just that reason. The newest trailer for Solo shows the Falcon in a like-new condition. She seems almost factory fresh with a striking white interior that looks as well manicured as any Imperial deck.
