Who would you be if you were a character from Star Wars? Are you a Yoda or more of a Darth Vader? Fans of the galactic series will be given the opportunity to discover the forces that shape them and the Star Wars character they most identify with in STAR WARS™ Identities. This interactive adventure into the Star Wars galaxy will premiere in Australia at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney on Friday 16 November 2018.
STAR WARS Identities is designed for visitors of all ages and uses technology and expertise in the fields of neuropsychology, psychology and biochemistry, interwoven with a collection of over 200 original artefacts, costumes and props from the Lucasfilm archives, to lead Star Wars fans on a personal Identity Quest.
Visitors will be invited to explore their own identity and learn about the forces that shape them as they move through a series of interactive stations. Each station will provide insights that help museum guests define a unique Star Wars character that they create and meet at the end of the exhibition. Will your choices lead you on a path to the dark side of the Force? Are you a Wookiee Jedi Knight? Or maybe an Ewok with fighter-pilot skills?
Along the way, rare treasures from the Lucasfilm archives and original costumes, props, models and artworks will be on display, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the movie-making process. There’s BB-8, R2-D2, the Millennium Falcon, Yoda from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™, Darth Vader’s suit from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™, plus so much more.
Developed and produced by X3 Productions in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd and the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, the exhibition has been secured exclusively for Sydney by the NSW Government via its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, in partnership with the Museum of Arts and Applied Sciences (MAAS).
