The second teaser trailer of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens was released recently much to the delight of Star Wars fans. Disney and Lucasfilm has also partnered with Twitter to introduce emojis of several Star Wars characters like #C3PO, #Stormtrooper and # BB8 on the social network.
Japanese airline All Nippon Airways has also joined the Bandwagon by announcing its plans to release a dreamliner themed on one of the most popular Star Wars characters, the adorable droid R2-D2.
Tokyo-based All Nippon Airways plans to style one of its Boeing 787-9 dreamliner jets like the R2-D2. The plane’s nose will be painted to look like R2-D2 with its characteristic blue and white stripes and other graphics looking like the droid’s various ports. The jet also bears a big Star Wars logo on its back.
This is a joint promotional venture to promote All Nippon’s international routes as well as Disney’s upcoming Star Wars movie. The ‘Star Wars’ jet liner will debut in fall while the movie itself is set to release in December this year around Christmas.
The R2-D2 jet is the first Star Wars themed jet and marks the beginning of the 5-year ‘Star Wars’ project of the All Nippon Airways.
