While in the “Star Wars” fans are eagerly awaiting a fragment of information they can collect about the upcoming film “The Last of the Jedi,” a large chunk of the series has been hiding in plain sight.

Twitter user Kevin Beaumont unearthed a fully-identified flying object while exploring the surrounding grounds to film-and TV-production facility Longcross Studios on Google Maps. The Google service, which allows users to navigate through the streets, and the natural wonders of the world by numerous satellite images, discovered a view of the Millennium Falcon from above, hidden in the vicinity of the UK studio by what appear to be containers.

The large containers completely surround the Falcon, apparently to prevent passers-by from seeing the famous ship in all its glory. In fact, the satellite image shows cars on the road right next to the containers, not on the height of the treasure that lies behind them.

Disney’s secret plan, however, was thwarted by de Beaumont, who shared the image on Twitter, adding, “Lol Disney tried to hide the Millennium Falcon with the surrounding containers. Also, it is on Google Maps.”

Longcross Studios, which is located just outside of London, is the site of production for films such as ‘Skyfall’,” “Thor 2” and “Fast and Furious 6,” and probably plays a role in the making of “The Last Jedi”. Apparently, the studio has become a kind of repository for the Falcon while it is not in use, and although the craft has been around since the first “Star Wars” film, it seems as if they’ll live to fight another day.

Although we can’t say exactly how the Falcon will be used in the new movie, there is a good chance fans will be able to get the ship in action as “The Last Jedi” premiered on December 15.
