We're just about a month away from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and there are all kinds of ways to get yourself hyped. Lots of people are immersing themselves in The Mandalorian on Disney+: it's already the biggest new streaming show of the year. Some of us are stocking up on Star Wars goodies as holiday gifts - or for ourselves - ranging from LEGO kits to your own droid to a Le Creuset Darth Vader Dutch Oven. (We already have this talking plush Porg at home. My 2-year-old son calls it an owl. He'll learn.)

But for the ultimate fan experience, you have to book yourself a flight on the new United Airlines Star Wars-themed plane.

It literally has a Light Side AND a Dark Side! Here are a ton more pictures of the majestic vessel and all the little details United's included in the flight experience. The Star Wars plane will be flying all over the US, Canada, Central America, and the Caribbean - and when you track it, it appears on the map as an X-Wing. Perfect. Here's the tracking link and United's official page dedicated to the aircraftThe Rise of Skywalker comes out on 12/20/19!
