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.

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.

    Gotta love the United Rise of Skywalker paint scheme. I saw it IAH the other day and she looked great.
