It’s no Death Star, but then again, would you really feel safe flying on something called the Death Star?
On Thursday, the hotly anticipated Star Wars-themed plane — All Nippon Airways’ ANA R2-D2 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft — was on display for the first time at Singapore’s Changi Airport, and the details are spectacular.
The entire aircraft is painted in the likeness of R2D2, and flight attendants are equipped with lightsabers (because of course). The plane made its first Asian stop outside of Japan on Thursday, and our fingers are crossed that Star Wars-themed aircrafts will become the norm for all air travel.
The plane is just the latest development in the ever-growing world of fan experiences, products and foods available to superfans, as people grow ever-more excited for the upcoming release of The Force Awakens.
For example: You could eat exclusively Yoda-shaped noodles for the next few months if you wanted to. Star Wars mania is officially in full force.
