FISHERS, Ind. -- The new "Star Wars" movie is just 14 days away, but some people are already getting into the spirit – including one man, whose love for balloons made for quite a sight in Fishers on Friday.
The 25-foot-tall, 20-foot-wide TIE fighter balloon took off right around 4 o'clock Friday. The balloon was all Brian Getz's idea.

Getz is a professional balloon artist in Indianapolis. He says he came up with the idea for large-scale sculpture during a hot air balloon ride.
Nearly 3,500 balloons were used to make the TIE fighter. They also used a hot air balloon, courtesy of Midwest Balloon Rides, to get the sculpture off the ground.
Getz says the sculpture will be donated to the Indianapolis Children's Museum.
