Rumor: Millennium Falcon Will Get A New Owner In ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

Little is known about Star Wars Episode IX at this point; however, we may have gotten some insight into who will be the owner of the iconic Millennium Falcon after it is all said and done.

Reddit user hankosheppard claims to have an inside source working at LucasFilm. This inside source claims to have seen some concept art and heard things about Star Wars Episode IX, though they say no plot details have surfaced at this point. What this source does supposedly know, however, is that the Millennium Falcon will fall under new ownership in the film.

Apparently, our heroes will once again split up. Rey and Rose take a different ship to what the source is calling “Objective A” while Chewie, Poe, and Finn take the Millennium Falcon to “Objective B,” which is apparently a secret Resistance meeting. At the meeting, our heroes will have a run-in with none other than Lando Calrissian. The team will try to convince Lando to join the cause but to no avail. It is at this point where the Star Wars Episode IX insider says that Chewie offers up the Millennium Falcon to Lando in exchange for helping them out.

The rumor does fit with the casting. We do know that Billy Dee Williams has been cast in Star Wars Episode IX and that he is indeed reprising his role as Lando. It would not bee too much of a stretch to imagine that the Millennium Falcon would wind up back in his care.

What do you make of this rumor? Do you believe it? Will the Falcon reunite with its previous owner? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Star Wars was released in 1977 and has become one of the biggest film franchises in the history of cinema. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Princess Leia. Darth Vader. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.

Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn’t be seeing any new films. It wasn’t until 2012 that everything changed. On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. Since that purchase, Disney has brought Star Wars back to the main folds of pop culture with The Force Awakens and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. 

In honor of The Last Jedi being released in theaters, Heroic Hollywood is ranking every Star Wars film from worst to best. It should be noted that this countdown doesn’t include any of the animated series or the Holiday Special. Check out our rankings by clicking next!
