Any ideas what this could be hinting at? The Star Wars Twitter account sent it earlier and is teasing for today (4/12) at 15:30 CDT to watch their Youtube channel. https://youtube.com/starwars

It would be right up with their other recent redesign disasters to have JJ Abrams direct the new UA commercials ... Having said that, I wouldn't mind UA giving their safety vids the Star Wars treatment much like ANZ did with Peter Jackson's Middle-earth epics ...

h please no -- I've had enough of the current screaming and yelling one. The old "regular" ones were shorter - and shorter is better here.

Given the size and placement of the United title on the side, I'd say this is more or less confirmation of the leaked new livery design being true.

Wouldn’t allow me to upload a mp4 so here is a screenshot
I saw them filming something at Ohare a few weeks ago in baggage claim (darth vader + a number of storm troopers). Let me see if I can find the video i took and figure out how to upload here

EDIT: couldn’t upload an mp4 so here is a screenshot.

I believe the Jackie Chan/ Chris Tucker film “Rush Hour 2” was premiered on a UA flight, with both some production and tie ins associated with UA. Would be quite a thing to do a repeat. The Terminal also has a strong UA presence (thnx Zeta-Jones.)

The billboard-style name place was confirmed with the HER ART HERE contest. What remains the mystery is the tail and winglet design.

I don't think anyone wants a repeat of that movie.

Kinda of a PR nightmare if that Livery is on a 737 Max. Can anyone confirm type of model posted above?
