Star Wars fans, get set for an exciting intergalactic adventure at Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition at ArtScience Museum from 30 January to 13 June. Singapore is the last stop of the exhibition’s global tour.
Fans can check out some 200 movie props, models, costumes and artwork from the original Star Wars films. The items are from the original trilogy of Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983); the prequels (1999 to 2005); the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008 to 2020); and the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).
No ordinary exhibition, Star War Identities takes you on an interactive identity quest to know the Star Wars characters on a whole new level while discovering more about yourself in the process.
Here’s what you can look forward to when the exhibition rolls into town at the end of January.
Explore Rare Treasures From Lucasfilm Archives
Get a close-up view of original objects from six Star Wars movies and TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Take a closer look at your favourite characters like Boba Fett, BB-8, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, R2-D2, Stormtroopers and Yoda, as well as models like Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon and even an AT-AT.
Fans can also check out the creative process of filmmaking from early concept drawings, storyboarding and model making to costume design and puppetry.
Design Your Own Star Wars Hero
Here’s your chance to find out who you would be if you were a character from Star Wars. Would you be a Twi’lek bounty hunter, a Wookiee Jedi Knight or maybe an Ewok with fighter-pilot skills?
Use your RFID wristband to respond to a series of identity questions at interactive stations throughout the exhibition to discover who you are in the Star Wars galaxy and learn about the forces that you shape you.
Discover Who You Are & How You Got That Way
Star Wars Identities explores the theme of identity using 10 components that help make us who we are: species, genes, parents, culture, mentors, friends, events, occupation, personality and values. These 10 components are grouped into the exhibition’s three main sections which follow the progression of identity from childhood to adulthood – first Origins, then Influences and finally Choices.
Catch 10 videos (one for each component) that combine clips from Star Wars with animated graphics explaining how each component plays a part in shaping the fictional Star Wars characters as well as helping you discover who you are.
