Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) pilots the Millennium Falcon for the very first time in the latest photo from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
EW has unveiled a brand-new photo from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, showing Poe piloting the Falcon for the very first time with Finn (John Boyega) and Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo). Take a look, below.
Of course, the end of The Last Jedi saw the remains of the Resistance making their big escape in the Falcon so it’s not exactly a surprise that “trigger-happy flyboy” turned mature Resistance leader would get to pilot at some point, but it’s exciting none the less — especially when all three characters are serving such faces. They don’t call it the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy for nothing.
Previously-released footage and images from The Rise of Skywalker have confirmed that Rey, Poe, Finn, and Chewbacca will take a ride in the Falcon together at some point in the film (if not a few times overall). They’ll have to split up later, though, with Poe, Finn, and Chewie’s battle with the First Order taking them to space and Rey setting out to fight Kylo Ren and/or the newly-resurrected Emperor Palpatine on-foot. Nevertheless, it will fun to see the four of them finally all together and going on an adventure before then. And even better, Poe will get to try his hand at piloting the late Han Solo’s galaxy-famous spaceship – something audiences have been waiting to see for the past four years – in The Rise of Skywalker.
