What makes the Millennium Falcon so important?

Millennium Falcon is a highly advanced and specialized fictional Starship in Star Wars. Due to its historic significance and strength to withstand a blast from the Death Star, the Millennium Falcon has sent huge waves of Jedi defense expertise across the Galaxy. It is a YT-1300 Corellian Light Freighter that was piloted by Han Solo and the old Chewbacca. The biggest impact Falcon delivered against the Sith and Galactic Empire was under the Rebel Alliance.

What is a Death Star?

Death Star is a terrifying weapon created by the Galactic Empire that is in reality a dangerous battle station. This science fiction weapon has the potential to destroy all planets with a superlaser. Death Star is introduced in the original trilogy as a vindictive weapon against the Jedi. Moreover, the Death Star is the size of the moon and can travel at the speed of light making it a supercool phenomenon. If only it was not used for nefarious purposes.

What is the Mandalorian Armor made of?

Mandalorian armor was first introduced in 2019 as part of the Mandalorian heritage. More than that the armor is a protective gear used by the warriors and common individuals. It is made of beskar, a highly durable and unique metal found in Mandalore. Boba Fett was quite fond of his beskar because of its resistance against the lightsaber strikes and blaster beams. Lastly, the Mandalorian armor is pride as well as cultural significance for the Mandalorian natives.

Han and Greedo, who shot first?

In simpler words, as the original movie, A New Hope shows, Han is shot, and Greedo dies. However, George Lucas’s alteration of the scene has sparked controversy among the fans. Later, it is shown that Greedo coaxed Han Solo into fighting by shooting first. Widely it is accepted that the originals are right. Han Solo shot first.
