'Star Wars' Fan Builds Life-Size Millennium Falcon
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. A "Star Wars" fan in Tennessee is living out his dream, and online supporters are helping him. Chris Lee wants to build a life-size replica of the Millennium Falcon. He bought 88-acres of land for the project. He's engaging fellow fans to help make the pieces. The BBC says a college student in Alabama has already built the spaceship's console. The ship is meant to be exact in every way, except for Chewbacca and, you know, a working engine. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
