According to, the ANA Boeing 777-200 will be adorned with C-3PO livery and will be used primarily for domestic flights within Japan.

The new plane is expected to be put into service in March 2017.

The Boeing 777-200’s Star Wars-inspired design was revealed to the public at a Star Wars Celebration Europe event in London. The new C-3PO design is the latest addition to ANA’s fleet, which already includes a Boeing 777-300ER with BB-8 droid livery, a 767-300ER with both BB-8 and R2-D2 on the fuselage and a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner featuring R2-D2.

In addition to the designs on the outside of the plane, the Star Wars theme will also be found inside the aircraft. With themed headrest covers, paper napkins and cups, passengers will be fully immersed in the ANA’s five-year partnership with The Walt Disney Company.
