‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Concept Art Reveals How Lucasfilm ‘Remade’ the Millennium Falcon
Seeing younger versions of Han Solo and Chewbacca on the big screen in Solo was fun, but they weren’t the only Star Wars faves to get the youthful prequel treatment. It was arguably more thrilling to witness the introduction of the Millennium Falcon — back in the days before Han piloted the iconic ship and it still belonged to Lando Calrissian. With Solo hitting home video formats in a couple of weeks, Lucasfilm has unleashed several pieces of really cool concept art for the Falcon, giving us a closer look at how they de-aged one of the film’s most significant characters.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is already available on Digital HD, but you might want to hold out for the Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray versions, which arrive on September 25. The extensive list of special features and extras includes the usual assortment of deleted scenes and interviews, as well as an exploration of how Lucasfilm “remade” the Millennium Falcon. To get you excited for the Blu-ray versions, the studio has revealed 12 pieces of concept artwork that show the transformation of the most famous ship in a galaxy far, far away:
