Corellia – Famous for producing two things, the largest starships & ace pilots! It is also the home planet of HAN SOLO & Qi’ra and where the Millennium Falcon was built.

20180601-103044-phpz8qK5zMost of the locations you see at the start of Solo – A Star Wars Story for the planet Corellia were film at Fawley Power Station, a closed ex oil-fired power station located on the western side of Southampton Water, between the villages of Fawley and Calshot in Hampshire. Its 198 m (650 feet) chimney is a prominent (and navigationally useful) landmark.

In 2017 it was announced that the power station site would be turned into over 1,500 homes.
