STAR WARS PLANE BEING LAUNCHED BY ALL NIPPON AIRWAYS LATER THIS YEAR

_82376911_afp_plane1It 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 waiting for The Force Awakens. Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) has unveiled a Boeing 787 Dreamliner decorated to look like the robot.

The cockpit and front half of the white fuselage are painted with blue panels in the shape of those on the droid.

Star Wars is also written on the body of the plane behind the wing.

Images released by the company show the tail in ANA’s normal livery.

All Nippon Airways says the jet will go into service on an international route later this year ahead of the film’s release.

Fans got their first look at a new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh instalment of one of the most successful movie series of all time, on Thursday.

The film is due for release in December.
