The Star Wars R2D2 Plane is Real

Despite doubters throughout the social media sphere thinking the image of the R2D2 plane is a photoshopped meme, the Star Wars R2D2 airplane is real. Much to the delight of Star Wars fans worldwide, All Nippon Airways (ANA) is launching its newest plane (a 787-9 Dreamliner) to coincide with its appearance on international flights which is expected later this year.

This isn’t the first time an airline has teamed up with a major pop culture brand. These include:

  • An Air New Zealand airplane was covered in characters from the movie “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”
  • EVA air featured a Hello Kitty themed jet
  • The comic character Tintin was painted onto a Brussels Airlines
  • All Nippon Airways had Pokemon jets

It’s not a clever Photoshop meme, the Star Wars R2D2 jet plane is real!


The plane is from All Nippon Airways.

Can’t wait to fly in this!
