It may not be able to make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs but the new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker themed aircraft from United Airlines is a cool way to fly!

Along with some “Sith Troopers”, stars of the final installment of the Skywalker story posed with the plane.

“Cast and filmmakers from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker pose in front of United Airlines’ Star Wars-themed Boeing 737-800 aircraft, created to celebrate the upcoming film—the conclusion of the Skywalker saga.

United worked with Lucasfilm on the exciting exterior design, which features the Resistance on one side of the aircraft and the First Order on the other. Inside the plane, passengers will be treated to custom headrests embossed with emblems of the film’s dueling factions, the Resistance and the First Order. The special-edition Star Wars aircraft will operate for a limited time, and fans can track the plane with its tail number (N36272) on FlightAware, where it will display as a special Star Wars icon.”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens December 20.
