Calling all Star Wars fans! In a galaxy not so far, far away, you can board a plane that will make all your Jedi dreams come true. United Airlines just launched a special Star Wars-themed Boeing 737-800 aircraft that is out of this world. Flying aboard the United Airlines Star Wars plane, you'll get maximum Star Wars vibes and will probably never want to get off.

This is such a great time to be a Star Wars fan. First, we got Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, and starting next month, you'll be able to board the Star Wars plane. The new aircraft will fly in Canada, the United States, Central America, and the Caribbean.

The new plane will be unmissable, with it's incredible Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker design. It was crafted to celebrate the release of the last movie in the Skywalker saga, which we are also really looking forward to.

The design of this jaw-dropping plane was created by Doug Chiang, Vice President and Executive Creative Director for Lucasfilm as well as in-house designers. "I typically design for a flat-screen when I design for films … an airplane fuselage presented a broad and exciting canvas," said Chiang. "We leveraged the curve of the fuselage to give the impression of three-dimensionality."

On United Airlines' Star Wars plane design, you'll see lightsabers and X-wing and TIE fighter spacecraft against a backdrop of stars that covers the entire aircraft. For example, on the aircraft's tail, there are light-side and dark-side lightsabers to show both sides of The Force.

But that's not all — to help you track the Star Wars aircraft, there also will be a special icon of an X-Wing starship on FlightAware. So don't be surprised if you see some galactic aircraft icons on FlightAware soon!

And, right now, MileagePlus Exclusives members can use their miles towards incredible perks such as travelling to Star Wars filming locations, attending the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and receiving special collector packages.

As of November 2019, you'll also get to enjoy United Airlines' new Star Wars safety video. Fans of the Star Wars movies will get the chance to see characters like BB-8, R2D2, and C3PO in this entertaining video. The onboard experience on the Star Wars plane includes classic Star Wars-themed music during the boarding process and headrests with emblems of the Resistance and the First Order.

Who else is super excited to board the United Airlines Star Wars plane? We can't wait to get our tickets to fly aboard this unforgettable aircraft that will bring all of our Star Wars dreams to life.
