SXSW 2016 is officially here and besides being the perfect destination for music lovers you can also count on South by Southwest to have plenty of cool stuff for movie fans including a life sized replica of a TIE Fighter from the iconic Star Wars Movies.
There's no denying that the TIE Fighter will be the perfect photo opp for any Star Wars fan who happens to be in Austin for SXSW and it also represents an excellent branding opportunity for Disney to connect with movie fans who happen to be here for the wide variety of screenings and film events in Austin this week.

The Force Awakens, which is coming to home video next month. (The behind-the-scenes documentary that's part of the release, humbly titled Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey, is having its world premiere at the festival on Monday.) The display comes as a bit of surprise, with Disney building it in relative secrecy last night near a collection of food trucks that's known during the festival as "SouthBites." Sadly, you can't actually sit in the thing, but if you're here in Austin and want to get tacos and then hang with a First Order stormtrooper, you know exactly where to go.
