The R2-D2 Interactive Astromech Droid has finally come to life and is now able to fly.
The creation is set to be released at Comic-Con 2015, which is being held this weekend in San Diego, California.
Comic-Con is a multi-genre entertainment and comic convention which is held annually. It is a four-day event, which originally showcased primarily comic books and science fiction/fantasy related film, television, and similar popular arts.
Nowadays the convention includes a larger range of pop culture and entertainment elements ranging across virtually all genres, including horror, animation, anime, manga, toys, collectible card games, video games, webcomics, and fantasy novels.
As it turns out, R2-D2 is one of the most popular Star Wars characters.
Earlier in April, a Japanese airline announced the launch of a Star Wars-style aircraft, “R2-D2 Jet”, in time for Episode VII's release.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) will make a new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner decked out as R2-D2.
As the project’s website reveals, the plane’s fuselage will feature painted versions of R2’s radar eye, utility arms, holographic projectors, and various other attributes.
The Dreamliner will start flying internationally this fall — just in time for fans to hop the jet to a late December screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first film in the franchise’s planned new trilogy to be produced by the Walt Disney Company.
