An upcoming exhibition in London will offer Star Wars fans a completely new way to look at their favourite characters.
The STAR WARS Identities exhibition combines movie memorabilia, interactive technology and scientific analysis to explore the idea of identity through the lens of the Star Wars universe.
Working with experts in the fields of genetics, neuropsychology, health sciences and psychology, Montreal’s X3 Productions has created an exhibition which takes visitors on an interactive identity quest.
The exhibition will help visitors understand their favourite Star Wars characters, and at the same time explore their own identity with one question: ‘What forces shape you?’
"This exhibition offers a fresh perspective on the beloved characters of Star Wars," says Jacques-André Dupont, President and Executive Producer of X3 Productions. "We get a deeper understanding of their identities, and, at the same time, we get a deeper understanding of our own.
The collection, the interactive components, and the scientific content work hand in hand here to create a seamless and exciting experience for our visitors. It’s a character-driven adventure into identity."
In addition to the interactive elements, the exhibition will also feature around 200 objects from the collection of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. These include props, models, costumes, and artwork from the original Star Wars trilogy, the three prequels and even the most recent film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
As well as seeing Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Yoda and the Millennium Falcon up close, each visitor will leave the exhibition with their own personalised and unique Star Wars character based on their own personality.
STAR WARS Identities opens at the O2 in London on November 18, and runs until September 3, 2017.
