Some lucky fans excited for Lucasfilm’s upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story will have the opportunity to climb into the cockpit of the iconic Millennium Falcon as seen in the brand new film.
Well, the Millennium Falcon in question won’t actually fly fans through space to complete the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, but fans will have the chance to step inside a life-sized replica of the interior of one of the most beloved spaceships in cinematic history as it will be going on tour for display in four cities including Northern Kentucky University (NKU) from April 27-29, Atlanta Braves Stadium from May 4-6, Salt Lake City Megaplex 20 at Jordan Commons from May 18-20 and Denver Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Littleton from May 25-27.
The Millennium Falcon replica is constructed inside three 40-foot long shipping containers and includes Lando Calrissian’s bar, the Dejarik table and of course, the cockpit. This replica is based on the molds used to bring the ship to life in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
According to the official Star Wars website, free tickets will be distributed on a first-come basis beginning this Friday at 10:30 a.m. EST and starting with the earliest entry time for the same day. Tickets for both Saturday and Sunday can be obtained on the day of entry beginning at 8 a.m EST.
For those who are near NKU, the Atlanta Braves Stadium, the Salt Lake City Megaplex 20 at Jordan Commons and the Denver Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Littleton, will you try to experience this life-size replica before it turned into the beloved piece of junk as seen in the original and sequel trilogies?

10 Actors Who Could Play Indiana Jones After Harrison Ford
Indiana Jones is one of the most iconic figures in movies. He has had four big screen cinematic adventures with a fifth one on the horizon currently set for release on July 10, 2020, marking the last time Harrison Ford wears the iconic fedora.
Director Steven Spielberg has already talked about how the next Indiana Jones could be a woman. The reaction to this news was met with the immediate dismissal that normally comes to recasting an iconic character and typically made worse when someone even makes the mere suggestion of race or gender bending a role. A large amount of this backlash comes from the simple fact that to a good portion of fans it is hard to separate Harrison Ford from the part. Just look at how hard it is for audiences to accept Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo.
Yet unlike Han Solo, it shouldn’t be too difficult for people to imagine another Indiana Jones because we’ve already seen other versions of the character. River Phoenix, Corey Carrier and Sean Patrick Flanery have all portrayed younger incarnations of the character and George Hall played a 90-year-old version of the character. There is a precedent for another actor playing Indiana Jones.
It is highly unlikely Disney will let this brand go. The studio could continue the franchise similarly to Star Wars: The Force Awakens or Creed, doing a midquel set between Last Crusade and Crystal Skull or even a reboot of the franchise. The possibilities are endless. But for now, take at look ten performers that Disney and Lucasfilm should consider as next Indiana Jones. Click Next to get started!
