Star Wars Reveals The Millennium Falcon Gets Its Best Captain Yet In

Star Wars fans have always known that Han Solo and Chewbacca are the ones that are always in charge of the Millennium Falcon. Rey and Chewie then took over the Falcon following Han Solo's tragic death. However, the first issue of Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker -- Allegiance suggests that the Falcon will soon find its perfect captain, and it's someone we're very familiar with.

CBR reports that Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker -- Allegiance shows us that General Leia Organa is the new captain of the Millennium Falcon. It makes sense that she will be taking over especially since she is Han Solo's wife. She didn't "call the shots" while on the ship and she is well on her way off to "pick up where Han left off" after his death.

The said issue follows Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Leia will be found on Anoat, a garbage planet, along with the Resistance. The First Order won't be able to track them there since "pollution clouds" will be able to mask the signals. And since they're short on manpower, ships, and weapons, following the events on Crait, Leia doesn't know what do anymore.

The planet of Tah'Nuhna was then discovered to be destroyed because they offered a little bit of help to the Resistance. Leia is undoubtedly scared and she demands General Jonato to take over in the interim. She will then do a different mission of her own.

Leia brought Chewbacca, Rose Tico, and Rey on the way to her mission, but it is surely going to be a bumpy ride. She uses the Millennium Falcon and from that moment on, Leia is officially the captain, making the aforementioned people her new crew.

They eventually got to the planet Mon Cala, Admiral Ackbar's home. The issue shows that it ended with a "rough welcome party," since the people of Mon Cala wouldn't be able to offer some assistance nor help ever since Ackbar's death as well the Empire continuously bringing damage to the planet.

It's certainly cool to see General Leia Organa take over the ship and witness her everlasting efforts to fight for and with the Resistance. I'm sure the part of the issue where Leia controls the Falcon would be an emotional moment not only for Rey, Rose, or Chewbacca but for the readers as well.

In the meantime, watch out for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker which premieres December 20, 2019.
