Ready to sit behind the controls of the fastest ship in the galaxy?
StarWars.com is excited to announce that the Lucasfilm Star Wars Pavilion (booth #2913) at San Diego Comic-Con is the next docking bay for the traveling Millennium Falcon Experience — a stunning life-size replica of the iconic ship’s cockpit. Cast from the original set used for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the attention to detail is incredible, from seats to the lightspeed levers. Fans will have the opportunity to go inside the cockpit with a few of their crewmates for a photo opportunity, which can be shared on social media; in other words, it’s time to practice your Han and Lando smiles.
Free tickets will be distributed on a first-come basis beginning Wednesday, July 18, at 6 p.m. along the back wall of the Lucasfilm Star Wars Pavilion. The earliest entry time for Wednesday, July 18 will be at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for Thursday, July 19, through Sunday, July 22, can be obtained on the day of entry beginning at 9:30 a.m. with the first entry at 10 a.m. each day. Each pass is good for a group of up to five individuals. Tickets are valid for only the day of distribution and are timed to 30-minute windows and allow for entry into the line for the cockpit experience at that time.

Also coming to SDCC are six screen-used costumes from Solo: A Star Wars Story: Chewbacca, Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Dryden Vos, Qi’ra, and Enfys Nest. Set atop the Millennium Falcon Experience, you’ll be able to see up close the incredible craftsmanship that went into each design. (Especially Lando’s cape, of course.)
Plus, many Lucasfilm licensees will have a presence at the Lucasfilm Star Wars Pavilion. You can get a sneak peek at several Star Wars SDCC exclusives and first-to-market items right now on StarWars.com!
