True Star Wars fans are going to find their quests to take advantage of all promotions for this winter's Star Wars: The Force Awakens getting just a little bit more expensive very soon.

Japanese airliner ANA is adding two new Force Awakens-themed liveries to their fleet, launching later this year.

The two new designs will feature BB-8, the new droid from the J.J. Abrams-directed movie; one, which will appear on a Boeing 777-300ER jet, will feature the same orange-and-gray design as the character, while a Boeing 767-300 will mix BB-8's iconography with that of R2-D2, the fan-favorite droid from the original and prequel trilogies.

Another jet featuring an R2-D2-only design, announced in April, will start transpacific flights in October; the combined R2/BB-8 jet will begin flights in winter, with the BB-8-specific jet launching next spring.

It's not only the outside of the planes that will appeal to Star Wars fans: ANA will be adding all six of the current Star Wars titles to a movie catalog on its international flights.
