Star Wars fans will be delighted to know that the world’s number one movie franchise (according to their fans anyway) is taking to the skies, with All Nippon Airways (ANA) just unveiling the R2-D2 jet over the weekend.
And the best part about having the coolest plane in the skies? All six Star Wars films will be available on ANA’s in-flight entertainment system on international routes — the first time the film series is part of in-flight entertainment. Planes will also feature Star Wars characters on headrests, paper napkins and cups.
This is all part of Disney’s (which acquired the “Star Wars” rights in 2012) marketing push for the most anticipated Star Wars movie launch since 1999’s “The Phantom Menace”, and will go hand-in-hand with the Mickey Mouse company’s all-new Star Wars-themed lands opening in Anaheim and Orlando.
