We all love Star Wars and the iconic ships that help tell the tale but how big would they be in real life? YouTuber and VFX artist Corridor Crew decided to explore this question and bring us the answer in this fun to watch video.

The YouTuber argues that we never get to see any of the spaceships in any context because they are always near other planets or other space ships. He then began to wonder what they would look like if they were put in spaces we are actually familiar with.

His goal? Helping us understand just how big they are. And he does that very well.

For instance, the millennium falcon it turns out is as long as Boeing 737 and stretches out three times the size of a city bus. The trade federation battle station is over 3 km in diameter.

Finally, the death star is 120 km wide which is nothing compared to a planet. There are several other ships the intrepid YouTuber explores. 

We won't tell you all of them. You have to watch the video for that. We will tell you this video is a treat whether you are a Star Wars fan or not.
