Now, Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams basically confirms that Jar Jar has bit the big one since we saw him last. In a recent interview, the director went behind the scenes of the upcoming seventh movie.

What a fantastic idea!

Star Wars is one of the best trilogies of ALL TIME and with the release of the newest story in a while, this seems like a good occasion to introduce a concept like this!

Later this year, All Nippon Airways plans to launch a Star Wars themed Boeing 787 Dreamliner based on one of the most iconic characters from the movie - R2D2!

And we're not gonna lie - it looks pretty awesome!

The move will made in conjunction with the people who own Star Wars - Disney - and the announcement was made this past Thursday when the AH-mazing new trailer dropped!

Here's what one VP-Marketing for Lucasfilm said:

"We're excited to be involved in this collaboration with ANA, one of the world's leading 5-star airlines. We're proud of the innovative R2-D2 design, and we look forward to witnessing the first-ever flight of a passenger aircraft featuring a Star Wars character. We're confident that Star Wars fans around the world will absolutely love this design."

Seriously, how cool would it be to ride in an airplane that has the likeness of R2-D2!

Way better than if it was C-3PO! That guy never shuts up!

Check out a video of how the airplane will be down (below) !!!

J.J. Abrams is one good sport!

On April 16, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens director took part in the Twizzler challenge, a movement designed to bring awareness to Autism. In the hilarious challenge, two people eat a Twizzler Lady and the Tramp style and whoever ends up with most of the candy "wins".

[ Watch: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Gets Another Trailer! ]

Not one to pass up on charity, Abrams decided to undergo the challenge with a special guest…the iconic Chewbacca!

Ha! We couldn't think of a better partner than the lovable Chewie!!

While the director ended up winning, it's clear the twosome had a fabulous time overall.

So, do YOU think J.J. chose the best Star Wars partner for the Twizzler challenge?
