TOKYO - The force is strong with All Nippon Airways.

The Japanese airline has launched a five-year "Star Wars" project that includes painting a Boeing 787 Dreamliner to resemble the beloved droid, R2-D2.

All Nippon Airways says the plane, dressed up in the familiar blue and white livery of R2-D2, will begin flying international routes this fall.

The new paint scheme comes ahead of the Dec. 18 release of the 7th film in the legendary science fiction franchise, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

The highly anticipated film is the first Star Wars film to be released under Disney's ownership.
