MIAMI — Have you ever dreamed of a Star Wars themed livery? If so, you are in luck; ANA has inked a deal with the Walt Disney Co. the Star Wars franchise to paint a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in a special livery with R2-D2 on the nose.

“ANA is committed to raising the profile of the ANA brand in the global market through innovative partnerships and branding opportunities. The partnership with Star Wars, beloved by audiences in Japan and around the globe, is a perfect match as Japan’s largest airline seeks to connect travelers around the world through this project.”

The aircraft with the special livery will start flying international flights this fall.

This is not the first time that ANA has operated an aircraft with a special livery; it has operated a number of aircraft with special liveries with Pokemon characters since 1998 when the first movie was released. Meanwhile, ANZ teamed up with the Hobbit, and EVA Air with Hello Kitty.
