It turns out there’s a very good story reason as to why the Millennium Falcon looks a little more polished in all the footage we’ve seen from Solo: A Star Wars Story so far.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Solo co-writer Jon Kasdan and star Alden Ehrenreich explained that the appearance of the Falcon reflects the Captain who pilots it. In Solo, the ship’s blue and white exterior and sleek interior speaks volumes about its captain Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), who enjoys the odd party or two.
“Where Han gave it a certain shabby coolness and a dinged up quality that reflected where he was at that point in his life,” said Kasdan, “this Falcon reflects its owner very clearly in its shape and aesthetic and his needs, even if those needs be a little more space to entertain.”
