Twas four days before Christmas and hush fell on the crowd. Could it be? Why yes it is. The most famous starship in the galaxy. (He said twas.)
The Millennium Falcon became famous as the personal smuggling starship of Han Solo and Chewbacca. It began life as a standard Corellian Engineering Corporation YT-1300 stock light freighter. Eventually it was won by Solo from Lando Calrissian in the Cloud City Sabacc Tournament. Throughout its operational lifetime, the ship endured many adventures and upgrades which led to its dilapidated exterior appearance. Under both Calrissian and Solo, it played a vital role in the Galactic Civil War and later conflicts. [SOURCE]
This is my favorite ship in Star Wars – I’m glad it was in the Advent Calendar and plan on putting it right in line with my other two when Christmas is over.
