Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader are, obviously, the stars of Star Wars. But one important “cast member” that rarely gets mentioned along with those characters is the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy: the Millennium Falcon.
One of the many things that make animated Disney movies so memorable are the exotic locations. Some are real, like Paris in Ratatouille. Others are fantasy, like Arendelle in Frozen. But no matter if the settings are real or fictional, the places in those movies are places we’d love to visit.
