This R2-D2 Plane is apart of the recently announced 'Star Wars Project' from All Nippon Airways. The first stage of the project will feature a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner transformed with a R2-D2 painted livery.

The planned R2-D2 Plane is similar to EVA's Hello Kitty-themed airplane that launched in recent years. However, it appears that the R2-D2 Plane will only be characterized by its exterior paint job as there has been no mention of on-board branding, like as with the Hello Kitty plane.

The announcement from All Nippon Airways regarding the planned five-year 'Star Wars Project' is a special marketing campaign from Disney that comes in the same week as the release of the new trailer for the series' latest installment, which hits theaters on December 18, 2015.
