Despite the incredible amount of details filmmakers have put in the Star Wars films, there are still some things that are unclear in the galaxy far, far away, such as whether or not there are seatbelts in the Millennium Falcon. Today, Star Wars: The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson provided an answer.

During a Twitter Q&A, Johnson has confirmed that there are seatbelts in the cockpit and around the Dejarik table, even though the films didn't show the characters wearing it. Perhaps it's invisible? According to Johnson, these are not new additions but they were already incorporated in the Falcon's interior since A New Hope.


In The Last Jedi, another familiar face will return to the Falcon, with Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker boarding the ship for his first time in quite a while.

As you probably seen in The Last Jedi TV spots, Luke Skywalker will return to the Millennium Falcon in the sequel.

Mark Hamill recently recalled the experience of returning to the Millennium Falcon while shooting

The Last Jedi

. "I'm telling you, I didn't expect to have the reaction I had," Hamill told

Entertainment Weekly

"I was there with my family, with [my children] Nathan and Griffin and Chelsea and my wife Marilou, and [Lucasfilm] asked if the documentary crew could be there when I came back on the


Millennium Falcon

. I mean, this was not on the shooting day. I was just street clothes and going to visit that set. And I said, ‘Sure.'"

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

is set to release in theaters on December 15, 2017.
