The Millennium Falcon is a fictional spaceship in the Star Wars universe. It is a Corellian YT-1300f light freighter owned by Han Solo and Chewbacca, who are smugglers for hire. The ship has made many appearances in works of popular culture, including the space opera genre.
In the original Star Wars film, the Millennium Falcon was used by Obi-Wan Kenobi to travel from Tatooine to Alderaan with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa.
The ship later became part of the Rebel Alliance fleet during the Galactic Civil War, and was used by Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and Han Solo on several missions including the rescue of prisoners at Cloud City and the Battle of Endor.
The ship’s design has been modified several times during its history; however, due to its age it has been subject to much wear and tear. The freighter also became famous for its role in evading Imperial ships during both New Republic and Galactic Empire eras of galactic history, thanks in part to its hyperdrive but also because of Han Solo’s piloting skills.”
