Star Wars special liveries now adorn six aircraft across four airlines. United Airlines unveiled their Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker special livery 737 making it the latest airline to add an aircraft painted to promote the iconic film franchise. We’ve made it easy to track them all.
United — The Rise of Skywalker
United Airlines’ 737-800 registered N36272 now wears a special The Rise of Skywalker livery featuring a blue lightsaber and United titles on the left side of the aircraft and a red lightsaber and United titles on the right.
LATAM — Stormtrooper (STORED February 2021)
LATAM’s 777-300ER PT-MUA has the world’s tallest stromtrooper painted on its tail as well as a stormtrooper helmet nose. The livery is coordinated with the Walt Disney World Galaxy’s Edge attraction.
Virgin Atlantic — Millennium Falcon (RETIRED December 2020)
Virgin Atlantic’s 747-400 G-VLIP also promotes Galaxy’s Edge with a massive Millennium Falcon painted on both sides of the aircraft.
ANA — the Droids you’re looking for
ANA was the first to paint an aircraft in a special Star Wars livery and has gone on to paint a total of four aircraft in Star Wars-themed liveries. One, however, has since been repainted into standard ANA livery.
787-9 JA873A was the first to wear a special Star Wars livery and is painted to look like R2-D2.
The second aircraft to be painted in a droid livery is 777-300ER JA789A, which wears a BB-8 livery.
C-3PO (STORED February 2021)
The third ANA droid is C-3PO painted on JA743A. This 777-200ER flies domestically in Japan, while the other two ANA droids fly international routes.
Some beautiful looking liveries there! Particularly like the ANA C-P3O livery.
Gotta love the United Rise of Skywalker paint scheme. I saw it IAH the other day and she looked great.
Is the United Airlines’ 737-800 registered N36272 – The Rise of Skywalker livery repainted already? Looking at JetPhotos it seems to have switched to a normal boring United paint job sometime in 2022. Unhappy I am.
