Star Wars Identities

Went to the Star Wars Identities exhibition this afternoon and it's a very cool experience for fans of the two trilogies.

Here's the blurb:


 200 original costumes, props, models, and pieces of artwork are yours to discover up close at STAR WARS™ Identities. There’s R2-D2, Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon and Anakin’s full-sized Podracer. Other favourites, like Yoda, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Princess Leia, stormtroopers, and Darth Vader, are also on display. As are many more treasures, including dozens of objects being exhibited for the first time. 

Breathtaking face-to-face encounters with dozens of character costumes and props, as well as original artwork and models, will take you behind the scenes in the movie-making process.

 The collection spans all six Star Wars movies as well as the ongoing television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars™.

There's a lot of interactive stuff and you get to create your own Star Wars character. Still, at 23$ a ticket, it's not cheap. But it brought back so many wonderful memories from my childhood that it was money well invested!

You can learn more about the exhibition by visiting its official website.

May the Force be with you. Always.

Here's the teaser trailer:

I'm looking forward to going with son but I am not too sure if he's old enough (he's 8). Do you think he will appreciate the "build your own character" aspect?

BTW, any suggestion for a good bookstore that sells sci-fi/ fantasy in Montreal (besides the big retail chains). Use to go to Nebula, but I don't think they’re still in business...

Basically all the interactive stuff is geared for kids. So yes, he will appreciate it!

As for bookstores, other than the big retail chains, unfortunately I can't recommend anything else... :/
