The moment that everyone has been waiting for has finally arrived!

No, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” hasn’t been released ahead of its original premiere. But the larger-than-life R2D2 All Nippon Airways (ANA) plane has landed. In Singapore. At Changi Airport.

In April this year, it was announced that ANA will paint one if its brand-new Boeing 787s with an R2D2 motif in honour of the iconic sci-fi film series.


At that time, ANA said that this is part of a 5-year “Star Wars Project” that will presumably bring more “Star Wars“-themed airliners into its fleet, based out of Japan.

And out of Japan they have gone! Because in October, it was confirmed that the plane will be heading to Singapore on 12th November. Singapore marks the first Asian stop outside Japan to welcome the R2D2 jet. The plane will be making a 2-night stop at Changi Airport and fans will be able to be part of an event on 14th November.

Bummed that you can’t be there? Fret not! Feast your eyes on the pictures in the gallery below. You’re welcome 🙂
