STAR WARS Identities travelling exhibition is officially launching its European tour in Paris at La Cité du Cinéma, which will host the exhibition from February 15 to June 30, 2014.
For over thirty-five years, audiences around the world have followed the adventures of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, the Jedi heroes of a galaxy far, far away. And now, a new exciting exhibition comes to our own galaxy with STAR WARS Identities, a redefined modern exhibition experience in which we will rediscover the unforgettable characters of Star Wars in a whole new way.
Developed and produced by Montreal’s X3 Productions in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., the exhibition makes use of an extensive archive collection from the Lucas Cultural Arts Museum to explore the sciences of identity through the characters of Star Wars. The stunning collection, a customized, interactive identity quest, and insightful scientific content will all work together in STAR WARS Identities to follow the dramatic journeys of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, cinema’s most famous father and son duo.
The vast and exclusive collection of some 200 objects from the Lucas Cultural Arts Museum features props, models, costumes, and artwork from the Star Wars films. This rich collection spans the entire Star Wars canon, drawing from the classic (1977-1983) and prequel (1999-2005) trilogies, as well as the animated feature The Clone Wars (2008) and the ongoing animated television series of the same name.
Fan favourites like Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Yoda, the Millennium Falcon, and Anakin Skywalker’s full-sized Podracer - among many others - are sure to delight visitors of all generations.
Visitors will develop a better understanding of what makes the characters of Star Wars who they are, and at the same time explore their own identity with one question, at once simple and profound: What forces shape you?
