The Star Wars Identities Exhibition Will Be In Singapore From 30 Jan – 13 Jun

Baby Yoda may have won over younger fans with “The Mandalorian”, but nothing beats the OG Star Wars films. Long-time fans who miss the epic films will be excited to know that they can get up close with iconic characters in an immersive exhibition.

The Star Wars Identities Exhibition will be landing at The ArtScience Museum on 30 Jan, promising an awe-inspiring experience for all.

Original Star Wars props on display at exhibition

Marina Bay Sands (MBS) announced the impending arrival of the Star Wars exhibition in a press release on Wednesday (6 Jan).

Marking the final stop in a global tour, the showcase will present nearly 200 original items from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art archive.

These include Boba Fett and Stormtrooper costumes in huge glass cases, which you can stare at while pretending you’re face-to-face with the real characters.

You can even catch Chewbacca, and see the costumes Princess Leia and Han Solo wore in the classic films.

Since the exhibition covers the entire expanse of the Star Wars canon, you can expect to see familiar items from the following series:

  • Classic trilogy (1977 – 1983)
  • Prequel (1999 – 2005)
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Yoda will no doubt be there, but those who’ve only recently hopped onto the bandwagon would recognise BB-8 better.

Not forgetting the dark and mysterious Darth Vader, whom we hope won’t jump out and tell you he’s your father.

Interactive experience for visitors

The best thing about this exhibition is that you won’t just be staring at the props all day.

Instead, you’ll get to learn about the characters’ origins, as you delve into the complex creative process of filmmaking. From a look at the following elements, you’ll get a rare opportunity to see what makes the box office hits:

  • Early concept drawings
  • Storyboarding
  • Model Making
  • Puppetry
  • Costume Design

As the showcase explores the concept of identity, it’ll be split into 3 major themes:

  • Origins – the characters’ origins
  • Influences – the influences that shaped them
  • Choices – the personal choices that altered their lives

An RFID wristband you’ll receive before you enter will let you take on the identity of a hero, so you can follow the entire journey closely.
