The iconic ship will once again be part of the new movie festivities when Episode IX finally does hit theaters, and MakingStarWars.net has gotten ahold of several photos showing the Millennium Falcon at the Black Park location.
The source that took the photos described a bit about how the studio is blocking off the area.
"They are going to great lengths to fence off this part of the park and are starting to cover this fencing with the same green fabric sheets that they used on Red Cup (Solo: A Star Wars Story) and preceding Star Wars productions which hang on the Pinewood fence between the public path in Black Park and the star’s trailers," the source said.
Similar forest and jungle sets have been rumored to be Pinewood Studios, so it seems there will at least be one part of the movie that deals heavily with a jungle location. You can check out the photos below.
