Disney Found Out the Hard Way That You Can’t Hide the Millennium Falcon from Google Maps


It’s almost impossible to keep secrets on movie sets these days. Paparazzi, bystanders with cameras, hell, even people on set are likely to snap top-secret pics and share them with the world on social media. And this goes double with the Star Wars films.

It isn’t breaking news that people are obsessed with all things Star Wars. So perhaps it isn’t surprising that, at some point earlier this year, someone discovered something unusual on Google Maps. Outside of London, across a road from Longcross Film Studios, was a genuine Millennium Falcon, hidden from sight by shipping containers.

Seems like the people at Disney wanted to hide the Falcon from prying eyes by any means necessary…but of course some nerd (or group of nerds) was able to locate it. Dammit Google Maps!
