The Force is awakened this December as 150 GrabCars around Southeast Asia have been decorated with “Star Wars” themed designs. Starting today, GrabCar users can indulge in their “Star Wars” fantasy and travel in comfort and style in custom designed vehicles.

The cars wrapped with the Imperial Stormtrooper and BB-8 designs will roam the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Ho Chi Minh and Bangkok until 30 December 2015 as part of GrabCar’s regional marketing campaign in collaboration with Disney Southeast Asia.
