Rey was last seen piloting the Falcon in the most recent Star Wars film but nobody expected her to end up here.

The ship was being used in the filming of Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi at Longcross Studios and had been moved and hidden inside freight containers, covered in sheets.

But, even then, its distinctive shape was not hard to spot.
