SOLO – as in Solo Cups – Millennium Falcon #starwars #hansolo
There’s a fair bit of tongue-in-cheek going on in this SOLO-cup build of the Millennium Falcon – complete with holders for red cups simulating the engine deck’s heat exhaust vents – but it’s also a proof of concept that you really can make just about anything from just about anything else! (If the time-code doesn’t work on your device skip to 7:11 for the Falcon segment.)
In this installment of The Star Wars Show, the president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige discusses his love for the Star Wars galaxy, artists craft a Millennium Falcon out of red SOLO cups (in a paid partnership with SOLO Cup) and a life-size replica prepares to launch, we check out new character posters for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and more!
