All is about the quest of Identities. During a few hours, you'll be able to create your own 'Star Wars character' according to your experiences (they will propose you several choices to make in your life), your education from your parents, mentor , your fight... The geek in my head got free !!
First of all, you choose what kind of 'Star Wars character' you want to be, you have a lot of choice (even an Ewok, Oh god !). After that, you build your character like Anakin Skywalker grew up to become a fabulous Jedi... and Darth Vader.
You follow a route with many steps and to each stop you have a lot of informations on the construction of Star Wars and it's universe : the history, the characters, the outfits, the space crafts the difference between the light and the dark side of the force (why Anakin made all those choices)... And the real outfits and helmets are there : Chewbacca is really really tall, Darth Vader, so impressive and Yoda, fuck, it's Yoda !!
Also, some videos and pictures will explain the details of the creation of the saga and all the creation process of the characters : Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Yoda, Chewbacca, R2-D2 and even, C3-PO. It's really interesting to see that all those characters did not have those looks in the first sketches.
A the end of the journey, according to all your previous steps, you choose if you want to join the light or the dark side of the force. This is a hard choice to make indeed !
And the cherry on the cake, the gift shop ! You can buy a lot of goodies, clothes and a lot of stuff you can buy for friends, children... No! Keep it for you and have fun you selfish space freak!
In a few words, if you like the saga (or know a little ) you can run to see this exhibition! This is fabulous, you plunge into a real atmosphere and when you leave, you just want to buy a light saber and become a Jedi.
Here, just two pics from the exhibition (to keep the suspense) :
C3-PO R2-D2 and other robots from the movie
Darth Vader as scary as it get's
(May the force be with you !)
