On December 18th, the force will awaken in the form of Star Wars: Episode VII. The highly-anticipated film will introduce a cast of new characters, and old, including the likes of Han Solo and Chewbacca. But while Han is away, Chewbacca will play in his Millennium Falcon sports car.
 
Created by Hungarian designer Robert Kovacs, the Millennium Falcon-inspired concept you see here uses cues from the iconic space ship to produce something a bit more road-friendly. And yes, Chewbacca can still pilot it—though we’re unsure whether his license is valid on Hoth after the whole AT-AT incident.

Nevertheless, it’s an amazing creation. “My goal was to implement the style of a selected object,” said Kovacs. “In this case, the Millennium Falcon into a car concept. And this concept is the result.”
 
The infamous Millennium Falcon first made its appearance in the 1977 Star Wars film, and subsequently in The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Return of the Jedi (1983), and now again in The Force Awakens (2015). Even if you’re not a fan of the franchise, you should recognize the iconic ship.

While we’ll most definitely never see something like this in an actual Star Wars film, we can always imagine Chewy blasting down some Bespin backroads at (light) speed.
