All Nippon Airways (ANA) is in the process of pimping out one of their 787-9 Dreamliner jets so it looks like R2-D2.
The R2-D2 Jet will include the iconic character’s blue and white design with a giant “Star Wars” logo on the side.
The promotional stunt is part of a vague, 5-year “Star Wars Project” that they say will “connect Japan to the global market.”
With the skies as our stage, we are embarking on a range of novel initiatives as we head into the future. Expect a new world full of surprises!
You can fly around in R2-D2 starting this Fall, ahead of the release of the film in December. In the meantime, here are some more photos of the design.
