Star Wars Day: You Could Take A Ride On This Lego Millennium Falcon Bike
It will make it around New York City in... I have no clue how to measure this is parsecs.
Is there anything better than giant Star Wars replicas made of thousands of Lego bricks? Probably, but humor me for a second. In celebration of Star Wars Day, Lego has put together a pedicab Millennium Falcon which you can take a ride on today, as long as you're in New York City. Better yet, Lucasfilm and Star Wars: Force for Change will make charitable donations during the day as you ride around New York City in style.
This Millennium Falcon pedicab took almost 400 hours to design and contains 20,300 bricks. The bike, which you can see below, makes its first public appearance today in New York City, and if you're the area of Bryant Park--6th Avenue and 40th Street--you can take a 10-minute ride around the park and help raise money for a good cause while you're at it.
Starting at 9:00 AM ET and going until 7:00 PM, you can take a ride on this bike and get your picture taken with Chewbacca. Star Wars: Force for Change encourages people to take photos and post them online. For every picture shared publicly on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter that includes #RoarForChange, the group will donate $1 to UNICEF.
If you're thirsting for more about the Millennium Falcon, Donald Glover--who plays Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Solo film--took viewers on a tour of the spaceship recently. Solo: A Star Wars Story also stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, plus Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Emilia Clarke. It's coming to theaters on May 25.
