The wait is finally over. The latest cinema installment in the Star Wars anthology, STAR WARS: The Force Awakens opened for wide release on December 14. All Nippon Airways (ANA) brought their BB-8 ANA JET to the red carpet premiere to celebrate.

The cast left their mark on the 1/20 scale PacMin exhibit model of the BB-8 ANA JET.

After the Hollywood world premiere, the cast boarded a specially chartered R2-D2 ANA JET to the London Premiere. Fans of the Star Wars franchise will also appreciate the Easter egg. The flight number was NH 1977, in honor of the release of the first Star Wars film.

Take a page out of the Star Wars Project playbook and invite a PacMin model to your next event.
