Tour the Millennium Falcon with These Awesome 'Star Wars' Photos

The cockpit


If you're looking for the hyperdrive controls, you're in the right spot. This cockpit will give you nearly a full-window view on the universe and on the stars zipping by when you're moving super-fast. Enjoy the Falcon's maneuverability here, while also remembering not to distract the pilot too much. He might accidentally land in a beast's mouth or something.

Hyperdrive controls


There's no sensation better in the universe than clutching these controls and going somewhere really, really fast. Are you up to join the adventure? Then make sure to watch every last "Star Wars" film before "Solo: A Star Wars Story" comes out in theaters May 25.
