WATCH: Millennium Falcon cape room is Lando Calrissian’s greatest asset
Looking new and fresh out of a production line, the fictional starship Millennium Falcon in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” features one very special place in its interior: Lando Calrissian’s cape room.
Donald Glover, who plays Lando, guides viewers through an “MTV Cribs-style” video tour of the Corellian YT freighter’s interior. The video was uploaded on the Star Wars YouTube channel.
Glover first showed off the living quarters. The space may look different from what fans remember from “A New Hope” and its succeeding sequels, but it is the same place where Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) was partially trained by Obi Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) in the ways of the Jedi.
He then moves on to the “guest quarters,” which happens to be just a bunk hidden above the circular seat where Chewbacca played the holographic monster chess game Dejarik with C-3PO. There’s even a bar opposite the semi-circular chair.
Moving into the captain’s quarters reveals Lando’s treasure room, a walk-in closet for his collection of capes.
“I got every cape. I got an everyday cape, sister’s wedding cape, intergalactic president’s day cape. This is just when someone gets cold, cape,” said Glover.
A quick shuffle into the cockpit to play with the hyperdrive wraps up the funky ship tour of the “Star Wars” franchise’s most iconic spaceship.
