Star Wars fans can fly their very own Millennium Falcon with the new Millennium Falcon drone, released for #ForceFriday.
Millennium Falcon Drone Released For #ForceFriday
The small, remote control Millennium Falcon replica — it is roughly the size of two adult hands — plays sound effects from the original Star Wars films, including voice clips of Chewbacca and R2D2, and features light effects. The Millennium Falcon drone has a range of abut 60 meters, and is priced at around $100.

Captain Phasma And Kylo Ren Speak
The Millenium Falcon droid is just one of the many toys released on #ForceFriday in anticipation of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Other hot items included a Bluetooth-controlled, miniature BB-8 robot toy. At about 4.5 inches, the mini-robot is tiny and can easily fit in the palm of an adult-sized hand. The robot comes with a charging pad and one full charge can last up to three hours.
Jimmy Kimmel helped unveil some of the brand new toys on Jimmy Kimmel Live, including Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) helmets that talk, marking the first time fans get to hear the characters speak — they appear only in glimpses in the previously released trailers.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on Friday, Dec. 18.
