You may be able to hide from people on the ground, but Google Maps sees all.
The movie industry tries its best to keep things under wraps until the big premiere, especially with a massive franchise like Star Wars, but with never-ending leaks and sneaky paparazzi, that can be a difficult task.
In an attempt to shield the beloved Millennium Falcon from peering eyes on the M3, it appears that Disney used a bunch of shipping containers located across the motorway from Longcross Studios, a production location outside London. The problem? the craft is clearly visible on Google Maps.
It’s not exactly clear when the satellite image was taken, or when Disney was hiding the spaceship. It appears as if it was actually first noticed back in June, and people started talking about it again this week. The resurfacing likely occurred due to thirsty Star Wars fans desperately trying to fill the void as they await the release of the franchise’s latest film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, on Dec. 15.
While it’s not the first interesting thing Google Maps has captured, it’s probably the nerdiest.
