SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WSBT) -- United Airlines has joined forces with "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" to offer customers a flying experience like no other.

Starting in November, you can take to the skies in the special Boeing 737-800 aircraft with classic "Star Wars" music to capture the exotic atmosphere of a galaxy far, far away, a safety demonstration featuring characters from the upcoming film and themed amenity kits. Customers can also snag a commemorative pin during December to celebrate the movie's premiere.

The craft's exterior showcases the iconic X-wing and TIE fighter starships against a picturesque blanket of stars with two different colored light sabers on each side of the tail, reflecting both sides of the Force.

The plane will fly on North America (US/CAN), Central America and Caribbean, with tail number N36272.

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" hits U.S. theaters on December 20.
