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) !!!
