The X-Wing and TIE fighter from popular sci-fi film series Star Wars will be landing at Changi Airport on Nov 12.

The life-sized X-Wing will be set up at Terminal 3, while a scale model of the TIE fighter will stand tall at Terminal 2. 

Both will be located in the terminal's public areas.

While the displays will be up at the airport until January 5, a one-off launch parade will be held on Nov 12 to mark the aircraft's unveiling.

Fans can expect to see Imperial Stormtroopers as well as starfighter X-Wing pilots face off in a show at Terminal 3 that day from 11.30am onwards. 

The displays are a lead-up to the release of the highly-anticipated movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh instalment in the hit film series that will open in cinemas here on December 17.
