Millennium Falcon spotted in a field in Surrey

Eagle-eyed Star Wars fans have spotted the iconic spacecraft sitting under a tarp near a golf club.
First seen in the original Star Wars back in 1977, the Millennium Falcon featured heavily in 2015's The Force Awakens and is set to return in this year's follow-up, The Last Jedi.

This week however it was spotted in a rather less exciting location - the Barrow Hills Golf Club in Surrey, England - where the film crew had unsuccessfully attempted to conceal it under a tarp.

The makeshift camouflage may have worked for those on the ground, but when viewed through Google Earth it can clearly be seen hidden behind some shipping containers.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be releasing in cinemas on December 15.

When you think about exotic filming locations, Surrey is not usually at the top of the list.

...And in further news the "tarp" company has been banned from defense contracts to supply camouflage... Just kidding.

So a new Star Wars movie and the latest one isn't out yet.  I guess Disney wants to keep soaking a good thing.

When working on the Star Trek reboot back in 08, we had to take some rather extreme measures to hide set pieces in transit and on location and could not entirely avoid picture grabbers, there was too much hype.  Sometimes spending weeks of additional labor and material building cover for certain pieces. I recall one prep day, working in the Tustin Blimp Hangars, preparing for one of the initial shuttle scenes, when a paparazzi helicopter desperate for a shot, flew into the hangar doors, only to see a group of propmakers laying chalk lines on the floor before beginning construction.  In some in...

Looks like the cockpit wasn't connected at the time of the photo. It should be sticking out the side on the right side of the ship. Even with the shadow of the cargo container going over the ship, I don't think there is room for the cockpit to be hiding.

Most of the Star Wars films were made just down the road at Pinetree Studios in London.

And next week, we discover a man's modified robin reliant.  A real mind screw would be if that was a model trainset with a micro machines falcon.
