R2-D2 takes to the skies thanks to this collaboration between ANA and Star Wars

In anticipation of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Japan’s largest airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) has decked out three of its planes in futuristic Star Wars livery.

The first jet was officially rolled out last weekend and features R2-D2 graphics on major parts of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s exterior. It will serve the Tokyo-Vancouver route, before flying between Japan and cities in the United States, Europe, Australia, China and Indonesia eventually.

No surprises that the BB-8, a crowd favorite, made it to this Boeing 777-300

Next to be unveiled is a Boeing 777-300 themed around the brand new and beloved BB-8, a droid that was only briefly shown in the movie trailer but has already caught on as a fan favorite. This plane will take on North American routes in due time.

The final Star Wars plane features the colorways of R2-D2 and BB-8

Last but not least, the third Star Wars plane sees the distinctive blue and orange colors of R2-D2 and BB-8 on either side of a Boeing 767-300, along with a small graphic of the droids on the rear section. Expect to see this aircraft making its rounds on domestic flights within Japan.

It’s not just the exterior that receives the Star Wars treatment; the distinctive ANA x Star Wars planes will also have similarly-themed interior decorations, such as headrest covers, paper napkins and cups. ANA will also be the only airline that has all six previous Star Wars films as part of its in-flight entertainment.
