ANA unveils R2-D2-themed Dreamliner

r2an

(From Japan Times) It might not be the droid you’re looking for, but a plane painted to look like R2-D2 could be the next best thing for “Star Wars” fans awaiting the franchise’s reboot.

Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) has unveiled a Boeing 787 Dreamliner decorated to look like the small round robot that appears in every episode with his multi-lingual sidekick C-3PO.

The cockpit and front half of the white fuselage are painted with blue panels in the shape of those on the little droid who does everything from carrying secret plans for the Death Star to co-piloting Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing.

The legend “Star Wars,” in the movie’s distinctive font, adorns the body of the plane behind the wing, while the tail is in ANA’s normal livery.

News of the aircraft, which ANA says will fly an international route in the autumn, comes as fans got their first look at a new trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the seventh installment of one of the most successful movie series of all time.

The film is due for release in December.
