Star Wars Millennium Falcon spotted alongside Surrey Golf Course

Grass Clippings - Millennium FalconIt is one of the most iconic vehicles in film history which makes it that much harder to hide.

And rather than shifting the Millennium Falcon to a galaxy far, far away, bosses at Longcross Studios in Surrey, simply surrounded the movie prop with shipping containers and plastic sheeting. 

The model was used in the filming of Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi at the studios and appears to have been moved a short distance off site alongside a nearby golf course.

But eagle-eyed fans spotted the Falcon on Google Earth because the iconic front of the ship can clearly be seen poking out from under the sheets.

It is unknown whether the vehicle is being 'parked' on the edge of the studios for use in the next film or whether the spaceship will even survive the plot of the upcoming movie.

The UK has been a fixture of filming in the Star Wars saga with some part of every movie shot on these shores.
