Donald Glover Gives Tour of the Millennium Falcon

We spent the entire month of December talking about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and with Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out May 25th, we made a decision to do it all over again.

Over the years we have grown so accustomed to seeing the famed space vehicle in its later years that it's quite refreshing to see it in pristine condition. As he says, "it's never looked better". Because they built a working Millennium Falcon pedicab, and it's all to help support a fantastic charity. But this is the Falcon from back when she was Lando's personal ship.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released on May 24 in the U.K., and a day later in the United States.

Yes, Lando has an entire closet dedicated to his magnificent capes.

Ultimately, Lando Calrissian will lose the Millennium Falcon to Han Solo in a game of Corellian Spike, a dice game. Still, even though Glover might not know what every single slider and light-up button is used for in the Falcon, he knew where to find the most important part of the cockpit-the hyperdrive.

The tour begins with the living quarters with it's patent leather and sound sytems and then it's on to the kitchen, where Glover offers to make you a drink - we'll take a margarita, thanks - and then we get to see "where the magic happen", the bedroom.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is weeks away and to get the hype train rolling the promotional goodies are starting come out.
