First look at the R2-D2 Dreamliner from Boeing.

This R2-D2 jet won’t fly to Cloud City, but it will probably reach Tokyo.

Revealed during the Star Wars Celebration event in California, the R2-D2 aircraft will begin flying on international routes this northern hemisphere’s Autumn. ANA is yet to determine the flights and routes for the five-year “Star Wars Project,” so any of the 37 cities the airline caters to could hit the jackpot at this stage.

“We’re excited to be involved in this collaboration with ANA, one of the world’s leading 5-star airlines,” Kayleen Walters, vice president of marketing for Lucasfilm Ltd, said in a statement.

“We’re proud of the innovative R2-D2 design, and we look forward to witnessing the first-ever flight of a passenger aircraft featuring a Star Wars character. We’re confident that Star Wars fans around the world will absolutely love this design.”

On October 17 there will be a Fan Appreciation Flight event, where Star Wars fans who won a contest will show up in full cosplay for their trans-Atlantic journey.
