Japan Debuts New Star Wars Themed Planes!

Okay, so this is pretty friggin’ awesome, right!?  Japan’s All Nipon Air (ANA) recently revealed not one, but THREE new designs that will be in the air as soon as October!  Just in time for Episode VII.

But if you think ANA settled for a simple paint job, think again.  Each aircraft is going to feature various Star Wars amenities, such as themed headrests, all six movies being on-demand, as well as Star Wars decor.

Take a look at two of the designs below, one BB-8 (the new ball-droid from Episode VII) and one R2-D2 themed plane.

I mean, look at them!

The first jet takes off on international routes starting October 18th.  All three jets will eventually fly internationally to cities like Vancouver, San Jose, Munich, Paris, Sydney, Beijing, Jakarta, and Brussels, as well as domestically within Japan.  In November, the Star Wars themed jet will begin with domestic routes, with the BB-8 jet getting in to the international fold in March 2016.

Here’s a link to the ANA Star Wars themed website, just in case you’d like some more information!  Be sure the check out the video below of all of the planes “in action!”
