'Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition'

The biggest exhibition in the universe is opening in Tokyo this summer.

The “Star Wars Identities” event marks the largest “Star Wars” exhibition to date and includes a plethora of exciting movie memorabilia: costumes worn by the actors themselves, props used in the films and detailed concept art of the characters that span from the original film to 2016’s “The Force Awakens.” That means visitors can see Darth Vader, Yoda and R2-D2 in person.

Not everything will be behind glass cases. In a special interactive space within the event, visitors can experience the “Star Wars” universe firsthand by creating an original character that reflects their identity and values, and digitally embedding that into a provided bracelet. This computer-generated persona lasts throughout the duration of the tour, and can be used to answer questions throughout the event.

There will also be exclusive “Star Wars” merchandise, including both artwork and original goods made specifically for the “Identities” exhibition, letting you buy a keepsake from a galaxy far, far away.
