When it’s time for the mission to begin, Guests strap themselves into the Falcon cockpit in groups of six. Each person is assigned one of three critical roles to complete their mission: Pilots, Gunners and Flight Engineers.
Following the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Chewbacca brought the Falcon to Black Spire Outpost for repairs at this spaceport on the edge of the galaxy. In exchange for some much-needed replacement parts, Chewie is loaning the Falcon to Hondo Ohnaka, a smuggler turned “legitimate” businessman, who is now making good use of the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. It is at this point that you enter the story of Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.
