Star Wars Identities
Until April 1, 2013 at
Telus World Of Science, Edmonton

A traveling exhibit of Star Wars art, costumes, and movie memorabilia would have been enough to bring out the crowds. Toss in a bit of science, and you have something that works for everyone.

Star Wars Identities examines how the world around us affects our personality. Tracing the growth of Anakin and Luke, it examines genetics, environment, mentoring, personality, and choice. Luke and Anakin had very similar challenges through life, but approached them very differently, and the results were equally opposite.

You wear a wrist band and make the choices for your character as you wander through the exhibits. You start with choosing your race, and end with deciding whether or not to accept the Emperor’s offer and join the dark side.

THE EXHIBITS

From the original R2D2 to Leia‘s bikini, it’s all here. Han Solo‘s frozen carbon form. Anakin Skywalker‘s pod racer. Yoda. Chewbacca. C3PO. Stormtroopers. Droids. Darth Vader. The collection of costumes, models, and artifacts is amazing.

But it is the collection of art work on the walls that tells the truly interesting stories.

Jabba was originally a biped, Darth Vader is a hybrid of two original ideas, Han Solo started as an alien, Luke Skywalker was once Luke Starkiller, and .. was even done as a female.

VISITING THE EXHIBITION

Star Wars Identities ends at the Telus World of Science in Edmonton at the end of March. This exhibit is NOT coming to Calgary. Only 75 people are allowed in the exhibit every 15 minutes. You cannot just show up and expect to get a ticket. Go online and book a time so you don’t spend hours in line or, worse, show up to find it is sold out.
